The working rider's steed, the Jake the Snake is the go-to bike for Cyclocross racers and hard-core commuters, alike. The legendary Jake the Snake features race-driven geometry in a tough yet light aluminum frame and a full-carbon flat-mount disc fork and is accompanied by tubeless-ready wheels. It's not your typical sketchy cross bike. It's got a slightly higher stack height so it's practical as a commuter. It's the perfect bike to take to your local CX race and the perfect bike to ride to work and rip the little bits of sneaky singletrack you find en route. It's practical every day and ready to crush it on your crazy type-2 adventures!
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. Now the Swiss Cross is back, and better than ever. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Painted-to-match Ritchey WCS Cross fork and WCS integrated headset included - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Front Derailleur Clamp: 28.6mm (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Headset: WCS integrated drop-in 41.8 (included) - 130mm rear spacing - Weight: 1941g / 4.28lbs (55cm, frame only) - Sold as frameset only
Straight to the races with this one. An all new full carbon frame and fork with flat mount disc brakes, thru-axles front and rear, and fender mounts is the foundation for this year’s Jake series. Whether your sights are set on the ‘cross podium or the all day gravel epic, the Super Jake will get you there.
