    these look very the same, check the disc drop out. I wouldn't think that Kona would license a frame from specialized?

    the seat clamp looks different, I didn't think the specialized had an intergrated seat clamp but it looks that way.

    specialized has ISCG tabs, rear der. cable guides and drop out and the seat tubes are different heights with different clamp styles as well as a slightly different angle on the rear brake frame brace stiffener reinforcer bar.

    the way the chainguide is mounted on the Specialized, the chain stay would not last long.
