Strengths:    Its made of metal, and braun

Weaknesses:    The grips arent metal, weak rubber

Bottom Line:   
This is a good bike because it is mostly made of metal, it has springs and stuff. the grips are not metal tho so i took them off. also the seat isnt metal. so i took that off too. one time i rode it across a patch of dirt, im a downhill racer.

Submitted by Tim a Downhiller from Fort Worth, Texas, USA

Date Reviewed: August 10, 2004

Strengths:    Light weight, great handling, price, performance, LX components, disc brakes, 4-bar linkage rear suspension, looks, resistance to petal induced bob, shock and fork performed very well, warranty. Other than the weak swing arm - I love the bike. It performs and handles bumps and jumps very well.

Weaknesses:    Rear swing arm frame tube broke on left side near rear axel, HKS was very slow to warranty the part, I was without a bike for 3+ months. Apparently this is a weak part on the bike.

Bottom Line:   
You get what you pay for! The bike handles great. It climbs and decends very well! However, I thought I could get away with buying a Specialized knock-off and everything would be fine. (I couldn't part with $2000 for a Specialized Epic.) I guess I am harder on a bike than I thought or the swing arm was a bad design. Jenson USA wasn't very helpful with the Warranty claim. The guys at Mad Duck Adventure Sports stepped up and helped with the warranty stuff, even though I didn't buy it from them. In turn, I bought a new Yeti from Mad Duck Adventure Sports in Grapevine, TX! Those guys are better than great. They wrote the book in service after the sale. Caution though - they have really really nice toys at Mad Duck!! I couldn't help my self and walked out with a killer new Yeti 575. So there was a silver lining to this story after all. ...... Anyone want to buy a KHS with a new swing arm?
