2012 Kona Blast?

Anybody have any reviews they'd like to offer about a 2012 Kona Blast? i'm looking for a good deal and may have found one.

http://2k12.konaworld.com/mtb_trail_...ontent=blast#1

I used to road race back in the 80s. picked up a skinny tire gary fisher for pavement a few years ago.

i am now looking for something to go on the dirt. basically a nearby city park has dirt trails, plus the local hills and some mountain trails in the sierra. plus i hear there's a great lunker brookie lake on the other side of the mountains which a mountain bike is the preferred way to reach it to fly fish. at 46 years old, i don't plan to bomb downhill. Honestly, i'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to the idea of fast descents on mountain paths. might sell off the Fisher. I'm 6'-0", 210/220lbs.

i may have a lead on a used Kona Blast in good condition. what would be a fair price?

i was originally thinking of a 29er, hardtail. but now with 27.5s out, i see chasing the latest is not really necessary for me and the 26 inch Blast might be fine, especially if i can get it at a good price. I have no plans to race, just have some fun off-road.

any advice, reviews or suggestions? thanks.
