What a dilemma! A Kona will never be a Moots…but there is no way a Moots is $1300 better. If I had the cash to buy good wheels and components for the Moots, I would do it. If I was going to have to put low-end wheels and components to afford the Moots, I would buy the nicely built Rove Ti.
One more thing. If it was me, I would definitely opt for the 450 Chain stay option on the Moots to be able to fit a larger than 34mm tire – that would be a deal breaker for me.
