dude for 3000 dollars get yourself a full suspension. $3000 on a hardtail is nuts. but the Kona kula is about 2250 euro and it kicks ass. still, for that kinda money id go for a FS.

What kind of riding do you want to do? Dirt Jumping? Street? XC? DH? We need this before we can tell you what is the best (for that kind of riding)
