I am looking at upgrading my 13 yr old kids bike from a Giant Warp DS3 to a Kona Dawg. He likes my Heckler but I am not about to get him a bike he will outgrow again in 1 year. He likes the big jumps, about 6 feet, but also likes to XC a bit. Unfortunately most XC bikes can't handle the drops he likes. Does anyone have experience with this particular bike and if so what are the pros and cons? I have looked at the MTBR site and the reviews look good, but I what to hear it from you guys who ride often.
