I'm considering picking up a used one of these for the wife. She's a beginner/intermediate coming off a 29er hard tail she's been riding for the past two years. Riding is rocky New England singletrack. Is a 2012 Kona Hei Hei a decent bike for this?

Depends on what she needs in a bike too. The Hei Hei has always been a shorter travel, sort-of-racey bike. Being from 2012 the geometry is dated, it has a 70 degree head angle which in today's terms is steep. I'd be very careful about paying too much especially without knowing the maintenance history of the suspension. But hey for $400 or less (bbb values) it might hit the sweet spot.

Got it for well under 400. Not too concerned with dated geo. Very little use - still has original tires with little wear. Looks like a great find!

LOL at suggesting a $3,000 hardtail. You're off by a zero on the price point.
