alternatly a GT/giant/specialised/trek around the 400 mark will most likley have better kit on it then that kona. having worked on kona's for a number of years now i cant help but think that your simply paying for a brand name, value for money is very low on sub 1500 kona bikes.
My personaly understanding of kona is that you do indeed pay for the brand, however the bikes are well made and durable.

Here is a mongoose that looks like it has some nice specs

is this any better?
