BOTM is a difficult time for us all, we all have our favourites for our own reasons.
I am torn at present between the Tequesta, Haro and Jamis.
I love the paint on GT's, they clearly had been smoking a little to much reefer in the paint shop when they came up with these, this is another reason why is till covet after a Karakoram Galactic Fade.
The Haro is blinding in its frame design. Having mostly e-stays i love the unusual and the eye catching, i took one of mine to Mayhem and got stopped by loads of people asking about it.
The Jamis takes me back to a day when i was in my mid teens and racing alot, i loved the simplicity of these bikes and the look, i also recall chasing one up a hill at Blandford Forum in 1988 or 89, and looking at the back wheel all the way. Ggrrr!
Not that my vote is crucial, but i shall sleep on it and ask my children (who are 2 and 4) which one is best.
All the others hold there merits, but these 3 realy stand out in the Maverick household.
