If there was a Winner for badge engineering, it would be the British Eagle.

Aside from that the Gecko is just brilliant, and the Breezer is as timeless as the day it was made.


Badge engineering?

The Gecko is real nice but the Giant edges it and gets my vote - it just looks purposeful and agile

The Breezer is a clean looker but even against others from the 90’s it just looks so dam old fashioned with that 1970’s paint job especially compared to the Kona or the Gecko

Of course the Giant being a ..... Giant :facepalm: won’t win and you could say I’ve just wasted my vote, but out of all them this is the one I’d most like to throw a leg over and ride off on.

As for backing a winner - my money’s on the Gecko for top spot
