    Giant Anthem 3, Kona Kikapu Dlx, or GF RD Caliber?

    Southeastern mountains xc rider, 5'7",158# that love climbing, fire roads, and tight and twisty single track. SE trails are bumpy with roots and rocks, so I need a little relief and speed on downhills.
    I comparing these three rides and they are all close. Giant seems to fit the bill, but I don't want to rule out the Kona for durability and possibly better stiffness and simpler linkage design. GF is sweet, but not many reviews at this point. I also wonder about wt. differences. Thanks for any help comparing.

    Once again i would recomend the Ibex Asta Pro with it's sweet components for the price. We have been riding a Asta for about 5 months XC/AM/minorDH & DJ with no problem other than the Black fork we put on because we had one needs to go beffor someone gets hurt. The bike is being riden hard from ages 15-48 & it just keeps smiling through all the abuse.
