Model/Year: Karakoram Elite 2014

Pros: Triple Triangle Frame
Kore Handlebars
Avid Hydraulic Breaks
ALIVIO Rapid Fire x9 shifters.
29er wheels.
Continental RaceKing 2.2 tyres

Cons: RockShox XC -28 forks
Shimano XT shadow rear deralieur

Recommendation: An increase of an 100 can get you the choice of Saracen Kili Trail with SunTour Raidon forks which are wider and a better than entry level standard. Also Schwalbe Rapid Rob tyres are slightly wider and greater improvement at fraction of price for replace.
Also a choice of DiamondBack Apex will offer equally faster speed of rapid fire x10 and slightly improved RockShox XC -30 forks.
