Kona Fire Mountain opinions
I went and checked out a Kona Fire Mountain and on the very short test ride I liked the bike. Now obviously riding around the bike shop isn't exactly riding trails or fire roads. So I have been struggling to find information on them online, however there isn't much information to be found.
How bulletproof are these bikes? I checked out their specs and they seem to be comparable (if not better) to the Specialized Hardrock which many people seem to think is a good entry level bike. Does anyone own a Fire Mountain or know how they would perform as an entry level bike? I like the specs that I see (9 speed, gear ratios, hydraulic disc, etc.) and I like the fact that apparently it would be different.
Does Kona make good bikes in general?
I appreciate your time and input.
