Date Reviewed: August 14, 2008

Strengths:    Solid feel, horizontal dropout, good welds, plenty of build up options

Weaknesses:    Paint, It could be improved with a few layers of clear coat. Weight, definetly not the lightest frame out there (this will just make you stranger though).

Bottom Line:   
So far so good! I was looking for an inexpensive single speed frame, and this fit the bill. It is straight, tracks well, and feels well balanced. The geometry fits me and my riding style well.
You'll definetly need to use a Chain Tug if running SS.
Other than that, if I need to replace it for any reason, I'll probably buy another one.

New spy cam spotted about midway up the Powerlines fire road. About half way up, and on the left if your going uphill.

'14 KHS trail bike spy shots?

Does anyone have any photos they know of of the new KHS 27.5" trail bike? I'm not a big fan of KHS but I think this new bike could be a great contender in 2014 (from what little I know about it). Thanks.Read More »
