2007 JAMIS NOVA
The best bike for the money period. Even more so then the Surly cross check when you compare the components. The nova is 105 drive train throughout and the carbon fork takes away road vibrations from your wrist. Good for racing, but excels at commuting and trail riding. Highly versatile with braze ons for racks and fenders on the frame. Iam an average rider with a 12-14 mile round trip commute to work 5-6 days a week and this bike has never let me down, and handles like a dream, with a stiff air cooled welded frame for extra durability.
