Strengths:    tasty paint job, great parts spec, solid performer, brilliant suspension

Weaknesses:    Power Tools OE could be better.(pedal fell off!)

Bottom Line:   
This bike and i have gone through a few rims, spokes and tires already. In the 2 and a bit years i've beenjumping it, commuting, crashing, etc. i haven't had any major issues. Right now the bottom bracket needs replacing, but to be fair, it's taken a beating. Only serviced the fork after 2 years, a true soldier. This bike is suitable for xc racing, a spot of downhill and even some playbiking, depending on your setup. Great for the bucks

Strengths:    Blue/Orange paint job, light, great price ($1350 CDN in 1998)

Weaknesses:    Defective Silent Clutch rear hub

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for a great price. I have had a lot of good comments on the paint job. The wheels have held up good during races and all other riding. The Z3 Bomber is very smooth and plush for a mid-price fork. If you can't afford to get a super high-end XC bike, KHS has what you're looking for.

Strengths:    
Unbeatable bang for the buck, good lookin' bike.


Weaknesses:    
Could shave a pound or two.


Bottom Line:   
KHS is the world leader in providing big bang for the buck. Compare it to any bike in its price range for components, including an XT rear, quality V-brakes, Mavic 221 rims, Z3 alloy Bomber, good paint and graphics, and more. My bike checks in at around 30 pounds with the upgraded fork, crank and pedals, but it still handles very well and makes a great cross-country weapon for the cash.
