I have some fond memories of that lineup. Rode a number of them over the years when I lived in Whistler. 650ish canadian seems steep based on the year of the bike. However see my note at the bottom of the post.

I found kona stinkys and the kona lineup to... be unfriendly for pedalling. They really were ideal for life assisted or shuttling imo. Especially with that much travel.

Frame tubing Kona Clump 7005 Aluminum/8" Travel
Rear Shock Fox DHX 5.0 9.5 x 3.0 - Awesome
Fork Marzocchi 888 RC 200mm - Aweomser...
Headset FSA PIG - Literally a pig, will survive anything
Crank Arms Race Face Diabolus X-Type - Sexy as hell, I miss the diabolous series stuff
B/B RaceFace Diabolus X-Type - Sexy as hell, I miss the diabolous series stuff
Pedals Kona Jack**** Primo - garbage
Handlebar/Race Face Diabolus - Sexy as hell, I miss the diabolous series stuff

Seatpost RaceFace Diabolus

Personally, it seems almost unrideable, since I do a lot of pedaling up to get to my downhill these days. Its a beast, a tank.. and will be fun to do everything but pedal. So the real question is, is it worth it to you and how you ride to spend approx 600cdn on a freeride/dh bike? In my younger years I would have bought that in a heart beat, but I happened to live on a mountain

sounds like a fun second bike. I trail ride an Intense SOCOM and really don't notice that much time difference compared to my hardtail. I do feel like a worked harder but that's why I am riding anyway.

at my age, I'd rather not ride down a park on a 15yo DH bike
In comparison I've been told my 2016 freeride bike is already a dinosaur...
