    New question here. Kona Mahuna?

    I'm going to pick up a 2012 Kona Mahuna this week, I can get it for 600$ maybe 500$ is this a great deal? I would love to hear what you guys think about it I'm mostly going to ride trails with it

    Yup, got it used for 550$, I still have it and it's on currently on sale, it's a pretty good bike for the money, climbs pretty well and descends not so bad (like any other hardtails realy) but I started to get a bit more aggressive and wanted something more solid so I bought a 2013 Giant Trance x1, got a good deal at the end of the season, it was 3000$ and he sold it to me for 2150$, so yeah, I'm selling my Mahuna now!
    Hit it first, then we can see where to put the landing.

    Kona Mahuna?

    Cool. I bought another bike too but decided to keep the Mahuna and do some upgrades (wider bars, fork, crankset).

    Nice! Wanted to upgrade it at first too but decided to get full suspension and wanted a stronger frame anyway!

    Kona Mahuna?

    Stronger frame as in different material (sorry, I don't know much about the differences in frames)?

    The new fork I installed made a huge difference for sure.

    I meant a frame that is bigger (not the size) but like the rear triangle, you can see on the mahuna that it's like the first image, and the second one (wich is a downhill bike) you can see the rear triangle is alot bigger, wich means it's stronger
