So, I've decided it is time to replace my currenty (aging) Asama bike with a new one. I've narrowed it down to 4 choices, and I wanted to hear some of your opinions. Here goes!

1. Kona Caldera

2. Oryx T-Line 250 Disk

3. Devinci Phantom

4. Devinci Chameleon

I mostly do singletrack, hill-climbs, the occasional jump, quick downhills (nothing crazy, mostly pretty short stuff). I should also add that I'm quite heavy (230+ lbs). The Phantom is a little on the pricy side at $1500 CDN, but there isn't one at the $1300 price range, so I threw it in there, too.

So what do you guys think? If you were looking for a new bike, what would you get?

I would definitely rule out the phantom. Not because of the price, but because it is a race oriented bike. Since you are heavier, you want something a little more beefier. The second Devinci looks nice, as does the Kona.
