I've been looking to purchase a new bike (coming from a bmx history) and was wondering how well bikes such as the Kona Shred, Specialized P. 2, and the Trek Bruiser 2 performed on the trails? I'm not looking for doing any "hardcore drops" or anything but I really like the geometry of the frames for these bikes and think they look awesome. If these bikes do well on trails, would you recommend them over the Specialized Rockhopper or Hardrock series? I'm really just looking for a bike that I can ride around town and still be able to goto the Trails with and I know the Hardrock series says it is ment for that but I'm really attracted to the frames of the p2, shred, and bruiser2 so I was wondering if they'd be able to do the same things as the Hardrock/Rockhopper + some.
Thanks for the help!
