I'm slowly realizing a $700 bike is a $700 bike. They are all very similar, with minor differences.
I think I'm down to a Kona Blast or GF Marlin Disc. Both feel good to me, both are almost the same price, both have similar components.
Marlin has some better components, Kona has the Hayes Discs instead of the Avids.
Is there any real-world difference between the two? Or the two bikes?
