your gonna have to ride both bikes and see what you like better. for downhilling man, appretnly rmx arent to great for it, but for freeriding there amazing. and with koan you havew a choice of downhill or freeride rigs. but now that transition has been thrown into the mix thats a real tough choice.....dd13 said:i have ridden quite a few konas,from xc bikes to their DH bikes,and they all ride great.not to start this debate again,but so what if something is made in taiwan?i guess since you say money is not an issue then why not get something that is a little more boutiquish.but i dont think just because something is made in taiwan makes it a turn off.
ps:this winter im planning on building a new bike...right now i have my sights on a stinky,swtich,or transition...so im in the same boat
