Hi all, I'm torn between a 08 Kona Blast and a 09 GF Wahoo. Both are for $500 and have almost the exact components except the Kona has a little better fork and disc brakes while the GF has the genesis frame. I've been picking the brains of everyone I know. Any thoughts and foresight is appreciated. Thanks.

The best advise you will get is ride them both and choose the one that you feel more comfortable riding.

If it's in good shape, get the 08 Blast without a doubt. Disc brakes, a better fork, a more "normal" geometry (although if you like the longer GF top tubes, go for it), etc. etc.

EDIT: To clarify, the difference isn't huge though (i.e. between the forks). The disc brakes would be the main selling point for me personally.

Sorry, I forgot to mention the wahoo has disc brakes too
What two bikes in particular are you looking at? Are they 2008, 2009, 2010...? Blast vs. Blast Deluxe? Wahoo vs. Wahoo Disc?

I just got my 2010 Wahoo Disc about a month ago and love it. I've never been on a Kona before so I have no opinion on that...
