Mountain Biking - Kona Vs. Specialized Vs. Trek...
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

Greetings from rainy UK... I'm new to the forum, and would need some wise advice...
Just a question...
I'm looking for a XC hardtail bike ($750-$950), fun and fast if possible...
Which do you think is the best between:
- Kona Cinder Cone
- Specialized rockhopper A1 pro FS
- Trek 6700
The specs all seem to be pretty much the same, but I don't really know much about the rides. If anybody can give a hand with this, I promise to be eternally gratefull :p
Hi Julo, and welcome to the forums :D
It'd be a chuck up between the Kona and the Speccy. Both bikes have a long history, and would be good for any application you might have in mind.
I'm currently riding a Kona, and love the long stretched out approach...excels in technical situations, and is a billy goat up the climbs.
As with everything, try out all three bikes and see which suits you...
Let us know how you get on
Thank you mate :D
Seems like this forum is a mine of cool infos...
Sun seems to be back in Wales, so I'm off for some test ride now...

I'm a big fan of Specialized bikes, so my vote's on that one!

For a great product and even better support, get a specialized from your lbs.

i've got a specialized stumpjumper fsrxc pro, and i feel i haven't chosen wrong. A year ago I had a rockhopper A1, which was also a sweet ride with good specs. You can't go wrong with specialized bikes!
i have the cinder cone and i love it. i actually did test ride the specialized, but felt the fork on the kona was MUCH MUCH better. i have put my bike to the test, and it has yet to fail me. boy i love this sport.
