    06 Kona Hoss Deluxe vs 07 Hoss D

    I am a returning to the sport Mountain Biker and I am getting ready to buy my first bike in about 10 years. After much time spent researching this web site I have settled on the Hoss D. My question though is whether or not to buy the 06 or 07 Hoss D? Have there been any significant upgrades between the 2 model years? The 06's are on sale but it is not really that big of a difference, so if the 07 is better (such as better components etc.) then I will just pick up an 07. Thanks to all for the great forum.

    07, the only real difference is the crank, but the 07 external-BB crank will be stiffer(which is definitely a win). Not sure how the forks compare (DJ4 for '07, DP Pro for '06) but they're fairly similar. But the differences are not huge, and it's only a $150 crank, so if the price on the '06 is really good, go for it.
