    2011 Kona Big Kahuna vs 2012 Jamis Exile Race vs 2012 Jamis Dragon sport please help


    I have roughly $1000 to spend and I've got a deal on these three 29ers that will keep me right around that price range. (the big kahuna is slightly used) The Jamis Exile Race is the formerly named exile 3. I have heard great things about all three. I'm 5'9, 155 pounds. I can't find anywhere that I can demo the two Jamis, I have ridden the Kona Big Kahuna and liked it. The geometry is pretty different, and the components are fairly equal, minus the easton wheelset that the kona has. I live in Western MA and ride very rocky rooty single track.

    I would greatly appreciate any opinions you can give me.

    Thanks so much,
