Peloton Reviews the Major Jake “The bike’s ’cross DNA comes though loud and clear”

“The new Super Jake is about ‘cross first, with a little side of gravel for versatility.” 

Peloton has posted up their glowing review of our latest Super Jake on their website. They’re taken with its handling and fit. “It has a tight and responsive feel that many longer and taller gravel bikes lack with their endurance-inspired fit. The tight front end and taller bottom bracket make the bike ideal for quick changes of direction and tight switchbacks.” They praised its low BB drop as well. “The 67.5mm BB drop of the Major Jake makes mounting and dismounting less of a high-wire act.”

Peloton Magazine says “the Kona Rove NRB defies expectations…”

“What do you do if you’re given an open-ended brief to make whatever drop-bar bike you want? If you’re a Kona Bikes’ product manager, you embrace your company’s quirky Pacific Northwest, off-beaten-path spirit and go for broke.”

Bryan Yates from Peloton Magazine joined us at our drop bar launch in Squamish a few weeks back, and got a chance to ride our new Rove NRB DL. We must agree that the Rove NRB defies expectations!

Ti Tuesday: Peloton Magazine Reviews the Esatto Ti – “Ride, Enjoy and Repeat.”

“Every time we ride Ti we are reminded of its unique qualities, our favorite of which is its ability to make road vibrations vanish at speed. Somewhere around 20 mph everything settles in and becomes silky smooth, it’s a beautiful thing. Our first ride onboard the Esatto Ti was a quick reminder. The motorist’s equivalent of road noise with the window down versus up, it’s that good.”

Peloton Magazine’s Ryan Yee recently reviewed our Esatto Ti. As you can imagine based on the above quote, it wasn’t easy getting the bike back. Read the full review on the Peloton website.

“SRAM Red 22 is still our go to group when we’re not plugging in our drivetrain.”

“The 27.2 Easton EC90 seat post adds to the bike’s magic carpet road feel.”

“Combined with the beautifully stiff Ti Esatto head tube, the Easton EC90SL stem gave the bike stable and confident road manners.”

“So many gorgeous things in one detail shot – the Red disc caliper, the flat mount, the forged and machined drop out.”

“SRAM’s Red calipers with flat mounts are the cleanest road hydro solution in the peloton.”
