Kona Caldera

What do you guys think of this bike? I just bought a 07 Trek 4500 a couple months ago but when I saw this Kona I fell in love. Is it a good bike? Thanks for any help.

Ask Siu Blue Wind. She has a Caldera, a Kona Dawg Deluxe and some other cool stuff.

Meh, to each his own. I HATE 90% of Norcos, yet I know they're a good company. But that's just me.
