    ? Kona 134 vs Flux vs 5010

    Looking to get a new bike. I ride mildly technical trails. tight uphill and downhill switchbacks. Can anyone compare the ride characteristics of this bunch?

    I currently ride an old Big Sur hard tail. Completely different geometry. Time to update.

    Thanks for your help!

    I just demoed a 134DL, and have ridden a friend's TRC (close to the 5010). I would say the 134DL is fun trail bike, but compared to the others on your list, more oriented to going downhill. The medium weighed 31.7 lbs. The geo is nice though, and it fun on the descents. Corners nice and feels solid over rough stuff. It pedaled okay. To me, it felt better pedaling over rough stuff than up the fireroad for sure. I'd guess the 5010 (esp carbon) and Flux would dust the Process on any sustained climbs.
