Which one of these base FS bikes is a better value? Kona or Commencal?

Postby rocoloco » Thu Sep 12, 2019 07:35 am

Hello people,

I am buying my first FS bike and the budget is around 2700 $ (2500 €) cause I get bored of things relatively fast and do not want to spend too much. I currently own an agressive hardtail.

I got tired of uphill rides so I am looking for something to use occasionaly in a bike park and on some tracks near my home.
I like flowy trails and jumps. I would like the bike to be stable, fun and poppy.

I got my eyes set on these base models, which one would be better value and more appropriate:

- Kona Process 153 AL 29, 2020, https://www.konaworld.com/process_153_29.cfm
Rear Shock: RockShox Deluxe Select +
Fork: RockShox Yari RC Motion Control DebonAir 160mm
2550 €

- Commencal Clash, 2020, https://www.commencal-store.co.uk/clash ... 2x29150779
Rear Shock: RockShox Deluxe Select
Fork: RockShox Yari RC 180mm
2200 €

- Commencal Meta AM 29, 2019, https://www.commencal-store.co.uk/meta- ... 2x27239627
Shock: RockShox Deluxe RT
Fork: RockShox Lyrik 170mm
2500€

The problem is I cannot test ride them.

Thank you for any insights!
