Ovaries on the Outside
I was thinking about selling my KM, mainly because I want a Rawlands. I'd love for people to talk me out of it, if they can....
you might've just sold me on a rawland instead of the KM I was thinking of! :thumbsup:~martini~ said:The Rawland is a supercool bike. So is the monkey. Think of it this way: the KM is more a modern mountain bike. A versatile one, but a mountain bike. The Rawland is closer to an old school Bridgestone, short and quick. It's also a very versatile bike, able to take 650b and 29"/700c rubber with capable ease.
If your riding is focused with more riding to the trailhead, railing the trail, then riding home on gravel, go for the Rawland. If your riding is focused almost entirely on trail riding, stay with the KM.
