    fiirst upgrade from walmart special----kona hei hei 29, felt edict nine 60 or other

    buying my first real bike, hoping for a 29 full suspension around 1500-2k

    i'm clueless so would be very appreciative of advice

    so far at the LBS i found a 2012 kona hei hei for $1400 OR 2013 edict nine 60 for $ 1700. Is the felt worth the extra money? is there anything else good for under 2k? Like a good website to buy bikes I'm not doing jumps or anything crazy, just all mountain over rocky areas. Thank you.

    Well, from those two, the Felt would be best. The forks are the same on the two bikes, but the Kona has a lockout rear shock, and the Felt does not. Although the Felt has a better build for the most part, the non lockout shock may be a bother. If you don't care about having a lockout then go for the Felt, but if you want a lockout rear shock, then the Kona it is.
    If you don;t mind waiting until next year, the new Cannondale Rush is being released in August and that would be the best for the money.
