    Without too much knowledge of the type of riding you'll be doing, and the fact that I have never ridden any of the bikes listed, as well as not seeing any reviews on two of them on mtbr.com, i assume that they are new models...

    The Kona looks geared specifically towards jumping. In fact the website states that, so i think you are aware of that. The lack of a front derailluer really cuts down on its versatility.

    The Rocky mountains are more geared towards freeriding, having front gears makes them much more versatile.

    Basically, if you're content doing nothing but jumping ramps or whatever, the Kona looks good, probably better due to the fact that the chain wont be falling off the front rings. But if you wanna do some actual riding, one of the RMs are in order. The FS looks like a sweet deal, and the hardtail flows have great reviews.
