    Kona Mahuna vs Giant Talon 29er 2016

    I am looking into getting a Kona Mahuna or a Giant Talon 29er. The LBS guy suggested the Mahuna, but when looking at the specs, I feel like the Talon 29er is probably the superior bike. Is there something I am missing. I am new to this, so I am just looking for advice from others as to which would be a better start up bike? Should I just go with feel or is there something else I should look at.

    Thanks

    Did you ride them both? Did one feel better, etc?

    The kona has shinano altus fd and rd which are trash. Other than that they are about the same in terms of value. Have you considered used?
