    Which 27.5 Trail Bike?

    Hey guys. I know there is a wealth of knowledge here and I seek advice. I'm currently looking to get a mid range fs trail/enduro bike for mostly Colorado riding for between 2-2.8 grand. Kona and giant are preferred. So I'm deciding between the Giant 14 Trance 3 and the new kona process 134. From what I know, the maestro suspension design on the giant is great. I don't know too much about the design on the kona but it appears to be a typical single pivot. Judging by that I'm tempted to go for the giant but the slightly higher parts spec on the kona is making me hesitate. Do you think it would be wiser to get the better design and upgrade parts or vice versa? Or I could just spring for the awesome trance 27.5 1. But that's a bit out of range. Sorry for the length. I'd love some feedback.

    Tldr: trance 27.5 vs kona process 134.

    I've sat on a brand new large trance belonging to a friend. Felt great. Stem could be a tad longer. The kona hasn't hit stores yet so I can't sit on that one.
