OK, this is a toughy. Both of these are still available at my LBS; I'm so torn. Do I go with the "King Kenny" laser-stripe vibe, with all the storied Jones Bros./Hurricane Hannah history or do I go with the one that evokes the desert sled of my dreams with echos of Inter-Ams past still ringing in my ears and the chance to be Malcolm Smith for a day every now and then?
It's definitely going to be my cross country whip when I add it to my stable.
