    Out of those 4 Id recommend either the Kona or the Specialized. Try them all out first, then make a decision.

    In my opion, I would say for that much I would get a Kona, although I'm a Rocky Mountain fan, they don't have anything that cheap for a hardtail. Well, atleast none that I can remeber lol

    Talk to us when you've test ridden some of them. You can have the best components in the world and it won't mean **** if the bike doesn't feel right

    They are all hard to choose from. But i'd probably have to go with the Kona, they are a very strong bike.
