I have recently purchased two 2016 Giant Trance bikes. I have toyed around with Trek, Specialized, Lapierre and Scott. Ultimately landed squarely on the Trance, since it has an all around perfect build for both the weekend leisure rider to the hard core trail blazer! It has a great suspension, great geometry, and climbs easily while being an absolute stallion on the descents. I felt the Secializwd ran big, was more finicky (good on one thing but not the other) depending on your previous ride setup. I am not familiar with Konami since I have never rides one. My vote is for the Trance, you will not regret it.
