Specialized Rockhopper Pro 06 or Kona Kula 05?

Hi!

I am looking for a bike at the moment, and I've narrowed it down to Specialized Rockhopper Pro 06, and the Kona Kula 05 model. I can get the Rockhopper Pro a tad cheaper than the Kona Kula. If I then add disc brakes on the Rockhopper it'll be a little more expensive than the Kula.

Anyhow, I'm having troubles with deciding which bike's better...

One of the most distinct differences is perhaps the forks, as the Rockhopper Pro comes with a Rock Shox Recon 100mm, and the Kula comes with a Fox Vanilla R (without lockout). Any comments on these two forks?

I really have no clue what to go for

Thank you very much in advance!
