    need to decide

    first off, i have a hard rock comp with disc brakes, and i really am hating hard tails, i want a full suspension, but the only thing in my price range is the kona kikapu, but i work at a bike shop and get everything 40 percent off, its not about the money really, i just dontknow if i should upgrade my hardtail, i love the bike, but i really like full suspension a lot more, is full suspension really worth the extra money to buy a whole new bike all together, or should i buy a full suspension frame alone and swap the components? need some suggestions

    IMO I would buy a nice frame and have the hardrock's parts put on the new frame. What about the Trek Fuel 70 as a complete bike?

    thats the thing, i can only get a bike from either kona or raliegh or cannondale, because thats all our bike shop carries, and thats all that i can get a 40 percent off deal with

    Can you buy the Kona Howler frame for $700, but use the 40% to make it even less?

    yes, i can get the howler for cheap, but i want an all mountain, and the howler i hear is pretty heavy, and not to good for xc at all, i kinda want a cross between all mountain and cross country, oh and we also have khs and surly bikes
