    KHS Flite 100

    I did a forum-wide search for any information on this bicycle, but there don't seem to be many details on the Flite on BFSSFFG, especially in the way of reviews.

    If anybody has experience with this bike, I'd like to hear a little about it. How does it stack up compared to other middle-range fixed gears (especially the Kilo TT/Kilo TT Pro)?

    the kilo frame is the same as teh khs frame.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    I owned a Flite 100 and really like it. Problem was, I made the mistake of getting a 57 and the TT was too long for me (I'm 5'11" with a 30" inseam). Made riding uncomfortable. But I really liked the frame. Had nice, clean welds and felt solid. I would recommend one on the condition that you make SURE it's the right size for you. If you could test ride one at a shop, that would be ideal, although I know this isn't always possible- hence why I got the wrong size. But yes, good bike. And yes, I have heard that it's the same as the Windsor and the Kilo and blah blah but I liked the fact that it was a KHS and not one of the others.. I dunno. Maybe I'm a label ***** or something. Or maybe it's the idea that an established company is more likely to stand behind their product in the case of a problem. Yeah, that's the reason.
    If it's fixed, don't brake it.

    As was said it's the same frame as the Kilo TT and as the frames Gene Spicer sells.

    I bought one off Gene and it was great. Best cheap frame geometry in my opinion. The components are probably middle of the road and/or crap, but whatever. **** it man.

    Oh yeah. Sorry about that. I meant Spicer instead of Windsor. I would also agree that it has a good geo. Grab ya one.
