    KHS Flite TR-101 Touring bike

    Hi Folks,
    Looking for a new dedicated commuter but i've always had a dream of one day setting out on my own little adventure.
    How does this bike stand up as a budget commuter and part time tourer?

    http://www.khsbicycles.com/05_flite_tr_101_09.htm

    It seems to have ticks in most of the right boxes.

    Cheers
    SteveJ

    I think at that price the LHT is a better bike. If you could pick it up with a deep discount, it might be a good value. I was looking at a LHT but ended up buying a Fuji Touring model since I found a left over 2008 model marked down to $599 and with a coupon got it down to $539.

    Yeah the KHS is only $1100 aud here, which is what 900 USD? Not sure how much the Surly LHT is over here, i can't find much online here about them.

    We discussed this bike on another thread. It's not a bad bike and has a name brand Reynolds frame to boot.
