To be honest you'll be lucky.

However here is a Caldera frame (a higher end version of the Blast)

And here is a very well priced Hoss frame:

Over at Konaworld.com you'll find that all hardtail XC bikes from the Lan'ai to the Caldera all have the same geometry and are all made from "Kona 7005 Butted Aluminum". What differs are the components.

It's only when you get to the Kula and Kula Deluxe that you get the same geometry but with "Easton Ultralite Race" tubing.

I think by buying the Caldera frame, as posted above, you get the same fame as found on a Blast.
