Trek Bruiser One or Kona Scab?

Which is a better bike to get for someone new to trials and urban riding? Both are in my price range but the trek is $100 cheaper than the kona in most of the local shops. I hear great things about both bikes and I hear the trek frame is bomb proof. Can anyone give me some feedback on both of these bikes? I'm mostly concerned about the frames, because with my size and weight I'm sure to break parts anyway so itís the frame I need to hold up the best.

Both great bikes, however I would choose the Kona over the Trek.

Have you considered a Specialized P.3? Just so happens I'm selling mine cheap!

Thatís a sweet ride! I'm afraid $800 is a little out of my reach. Is there any particular reason you would choose the Kona over the Trek or do you just like Kona bikes better?
