    Kuota brand of bikes

    Anyone ride one of these.....I am thinking about getting one. I have a Giant TCR now and have been happy with it. Just looking for something new....

    I am just looking at the frame, I would transfer everything I have on my current bike over.

    I am a 225 to 300 pound rider...6'2"

    Looks like at least equivalent quality to Cervello! I LIKE the Khan!

    The Kredo or the Khan...both look to be steller bikes. When we were in France a few years ago our bike tourning group used this kind of bike as there high end rental bike. Everyone that got one was very impressed with them. Made me wish I had a rental LOL ever since then I have wanted one.....maybe this year is my year...

    You could perhaps send an email to Kuota to find out about any weight limits on the bike. Usually there is not except for CF bike frames. I too have loved the looks of the Kuotas. I particularly like the curve in the rear triangle of the Kredo and Khan. Not really fond of the bubbly head tube of the Khan. Please forgive my next question, but you cannot be 225 to 300 pound, you have a weight so what is it, 225 or 300?

    Have it. Love it. You should get it too.

    Seriously, I own the Kuota Kharma, their lowest end frame. I would have preferred to get the Khan, but it was $1500 more. I weigh 285lbs. No problems whatsoever. Comfortable ride. Awesome descending--just carves through turns like skiing. Due to weight & strength of frame, you'd probably want to stick to the Kharma or Khan, though. The other frames push the limits on lightness, and these two are the strongest of the Kuota line.

    I'm also getting a pair of their sunglasses

    270 now going down....been 300 and hovered at 225 when I was riding regularly. I would be happy if 225 was my weight....lol ok ok this is not a weight thread.....


    mkadam68 post a bigger pic...very nice....

    I did actually mail them....I mailed them the same thing I asked you guys and there answer was good but not great...lol only not great because they did not say what I wanted to hear...I know I know my problem...

    Here is there responce...

    Hi Biff,

    First of all thank you very much for your mail.

    Let me write you some words regarding your request; Our Kredo can support your needs but dipend which ride style you use.

    The better solution could be: from now Kharma. Strarting from December the new Kebel. This is the new project, Kharma price range with new shapes (on our website www.kuota.it ) you can find some infos.

    Regarding size XL is the right one but I suggest you to check all the details with a Tech Dealer. Eventually you can play on our website with the configurator.

    Best regards.

    I like the Kredo..I like its lines and how it looks....I like the Kebel as well just not as much...

    SO....back to the post....mkadam68...nice looking bike and glad you are liking it....
