New Bike

I was going to buy my wife a Trek 4300, but then I saw the Kona Blast which although a little more expensive is much better specced. What do you think about this bike overall?
Thanks

I like Kona's much better than Treks. Mostly because when you buy a Kona, you become part of the "Clan". Go to their website and read what I mean.

I'd vote for the Kona!

The Blast is a sweet bike. I'm sure it is worth the extra $ over the poorly speced Trek. I'm currious what the new cheap Marzocchi MZ forks are like, as speced on the Kona. Elastomer sprung junk, or typical Marz quality?

Get the Kona.
