Architect and hobby furniture maker Kirill has an understandable need for customization. With an interest in road cycling and a long-lasting love of Kona bikes, and having been blessed with having a local Kona dealer as his close friend, this Major Jake build was a sure success from the start.
Kirill had plenty of time to choose the right components while the bike was on its way, and while the guys at the bike shop went through their HSE routines before starting the build, he could complete the design which is now referred to as the Land Rover Evoque of cyclocross bikes. The goal was to build a bike that looks proportional and is super fast both on asphalt and across various terrain.
