    Jake the Snake thunking front end

    I know it's a cyclocross bike, but there are many Kona fans in here. Anyone have a carbon fork Jake the Snake? The front end is noisy and I'm thinking it's the fork flexing and causing noise. Certainly not a lose headset, since I tightened to the point of the bearing not moving freely and the noise was still there. All I have to to is pickup the front end 2 ft from the ground and drop it. It thunks for like 2 seconds, like something is flexing back and forth. Off road rides are really noisy on the bumpier sections. Just wondering if that's normal.

    I have a 2009 JTS and ride it hard on trails and race and I don't have this problem with my fork. Let us know the verdict when you get it sorted out.
