Giant yukon fs
Some advice: Kona blast vs. Giant Yukon FS
I been looking for a new bike for a month. after reading through this forum i decided to go used for a better deal for my dollar. i found two bikes that have caught my attention and are the same price. will look at both this weekend to see the fit.
Kona Blast 18" 26er / Disc / Rockshox / Sram / 130mm Travel
Giant Yukon Full Suspension
Does anyone with some knowledge know if these are good deals or not. I will be riding to college up some pretty good hills and hitting the trails whenever possible. Im 5'9 and 180 lbs. Thanks!
I'm thinking i wouldn't trust the guy with the Kona, or anything that he has done to the bike. I would hope that "the frame was recently reconditioned with a 1200 degree automotive powder coat finish" is a typo. aluminum starts to melt at 1,221 degree.
on the other hand i have a yukon and love it for trail riding. I would say try them both and don't pay full asking price. make an offer for the one you want and see what you get. regardless of any work or upgrades.
Thats a very interesting point. Kudos on knowing the melting point, thats pretty cool. yea im going to ride them both this weekend. the kona guy owns a bike shop, or at least thats what he says. thanks
