    Kona taro or trek mamba

    I am getting a new bike today and everything ive read online rated the trek mamba as one of the best buys for under $1000 so thats what im looking at getting. But then i found a guy that said he will sell me his 2013 kano taro for $800 two months old still has receipt and warranty. so what should i do my budget is really right around $1000. what do you guys think i should get?

    There's also GT Karakoram 2.0 in that range with RockShox.

    The Kona is 120mm with short chainstay--more AM -- more like a Stache and an aluminum Honzo. Read reviews of the Honzo for ideas on handling.
