KHS Bikes
 
Hi All

What are your thoughts, opinions and experience with KHS bikes? I may be able to get a great deal on the bike below. Also what are your thoughts on carbon frame bikes. My experience is only with aluminum.

Go for it.

Make durn sure you understand their Warranty.

KHS has a reputation from decades past , but now the prior Importer company sells the name , to different companies.

A common business practice

Has been no KHS Factory .. just a manufacturing contract with a multi brand supplier .

carbon , if you buy a new bike frequently and feel compelled buy your peers,

never buy used CF frames/ forks .. damaged ones can hide surprises. ..


Like the Dealer that sells that brand in their shop? that is more important.. they stand behind what they sell

The LBS one town over is a KHS dealer. He sells a ton of them and I ride with a few of the folks that own them.

They seem like good bikes. I don't hear any bad stories about them.

You might check on an older year model. A couple of the people I know did that. Picked a 2014 model from the catalog for example and KHS happened to have one in the warehouse and made them a smoking deal on it.

My first road bike was a KHS and I loved it but, that was in the early 80's.

I personally would look at the Giant brand with the the latest Shimano 105 groupset.

I have a 2014 CX100, my wife rides a 2012 Flite 500, and my nephew rides a 2013 Flite 500. KHS generally gives you more bike (component-wise) at the pricepoint when compared to another brand-- I got the wife's bike on warehouse closeout for $800 (Tiagra/105 mix), and my nephew's was just under $1000 (full 105.) So as mentioned above, definitely have your LBS check the KHS warehouse-- they still have some 2012/2013s in there.

Thanks for you comments, they are appreciated. This is last years model which I believe was the first year of this bike and It will probably have a cosmetic blemish which would allow me to get a better deal. I just was not looking to get a carbon frame primarily because they are generally way beyond my price point.
