I'm thinking of buying a GT Karakorum. The back story is that I gave a neighborhood kid a Schwinn Ranger about 3 years ago, which is outgrown now. I found a Karakoram (88 or 89) for $50. I have a Jamis Explorer XR also. Either bike would fit him. Should I give him the Jamis or the GT (if I decide to buy it)? I would keep the other for my wife or a future donation.
I had one and it was a great bike. I shipped it to the Philippines and rode it while on vacation there. Gave it away before I left.
