    I am looking forward to getting a Kona Jake or a Mongoose
    Randonneur but I haven't been able to find any shop in
    Sydney that have either. One of the reasons is that I just
    moved in Sydney, so I don't really know many bicycle
    shops. I would love to hear from suggestions on places I
    can call or visit, as well as about other bicycles similar
    to those two.

    I inquired about the Kona Jake at the start of the year and was told that they don't import it to Oz. :(

    Alot of flatbar road(ish) bikes have similar geometry and make a good alternative. You could always get the bike shop to change the handlebars to drops for a bit extra cost.

    I live in Melbourne so I can't help you on bike shops. If you grab a yellow pages directory though most of the bike shops listed advertise the brand of bike they sell.

    I've seen a few people riding the Mongoose
    Randonneur and it looks like a nice bike. It got a good review in Australian Cyclist as well: http://www.australiancyclist.com.au/showarticle.php?s=4&a=433

    A list of similar bikes around $1k to check out:

    Giant Perigee
    Specialized Sequoia and Sirrus
    Kona Dew series
    Trek 1200 flatbar
    Avanti Blade
    Gary fisher utopia
    Jamis Coda
