    New bike please help

    Hey guys
    I looking at buying a new mountain bike
    im looking at a kona process 134 2015 (which is around my budget)
    I am an aggressive enduro rider
    Another bike im looking at is the giant reign 2 2015 because it comes with a pike or do I buy the kona process 153 or buy the kona 134 and upgrade it with a pike
    does anyone else know any other bikes
    I can get the kona process 134 for $2750 NZD
    kona process 153 for $3750 NZD
    giant reign 2 for $3150 NZD

    i don't really want to spend much that is why I'm leaning towards the kona 134 because it the cheapest and they have. Short chainstays

    Upgrading forks isn't cheap and resale on the old forks isn't great either. It cost me $1300 NZD to put solo air pikes on my bike. Mine was done through my bike shop but you might be able to reduce the costs by getting them online and doing it yourself.

    id get the 153. the Pike is sweet and you get more travel, better drive and tires
