I realize this is a new model, but do any of you have any input on the Kona Slice bike?
I've been looking for a nice, cushy mountain bike to help get my fat ass back into shape and not break the bank at the same time.
My LBS let me cruise one around today, and I loved it. I like the upright position (compared to my road bike), smooth shifting, ride and looks.
Besides that, I know nothing about the company, model or components.
Any thoughts on the model or?

I live in an area with mucho hills and dirt trails, so I've ruled out the hybrids.
Thanks for any tips.
