    Kahuna VS. Mahuna

    im 350lbs 6ft, Im looking into the Kona Kahuna and Mahuna. Cant really tell the differences other then the price. Had a rigid frame Diamondback (1990) a prevous bike. Local bike shop carries Kona but nothing in stock, but will order what model i want. I know nothing about the newest bike tech.
    I need some help to make a decision.

    taking a quick look at the specs of the Kahuna and the Mahuna, I believe they are the same frame but the Kahuna has better components (sram x5, forks stanchions are 32mm on the Kahuna and only 28mm on the mahuna, same disc brakes, better saddle)

    I own the 2013 Mahuna and was steered toward Kona because most of the reviews I read seemed that the bigger "clydes" loved them.

    Im gonna go out on a limb here and say its all going to matter how you plan on riding it, if its alot of pavement/fireroads then i would say save the money upfront and get the Mahuna...if you want to get a little more down and dirty on the thing then hit up that Kahuna, that front fork on the Kahuna will get you a bit further down the road.
