Congratulations to Freda Gorman from Placerville, CA on her recent win on The Price Is Right. Freda won an Alite 350 bicycle which she picked up from her local KHS Dealer Bicycle Guys in El Dorado Hills, CA.
Congrats to Freda and many thanks to the Bicycle Guys for assembling the Alite 350.
Freestyle MX star Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg stopped by KHS to pick-up two KHS bicycles he will use for cross training. Jeremy picked up the superlight and fast Carbon Fiber Team29er for the dirt and the CashCall Team issue Flite 900. Jeremy was totally stoked with the awesome colorway on these two bikes, not to mention the lightweight feel of these carbon rides.
Here are a few pics of Jeremy during his visit.
This is my humble review of my ride on a 27.5 KHS 2500 – with SLX drivetrain including the XT shadow plus rear derailleur and 10-speed XT cogset – which makes it somewhere between the 5500 and the 6500 models?
This bike is adapted to trail and all mountain riding. Surprisingly, it feels like a road bike on paved streets – hard and unyielding as the racer bike -BUT transforms into a superb full suspension mountain bike on uneven trails. When hitting the earth and stones, the play of its parts and suspension is not only comfortable but, more than anything, gives comfort to the confidence of the rider. Do you know what I mean? Of course you do.
I plunge into trails and angles which I would have been otherwise afraid to take in another bike (bigger wheel size). The ‘tweener wheel size coupled with the performance of this low center of gravity bike makes it quick, quickly responsive, and playful inside the trails. Adding them all up equals a confident ride.
We were in the middle of the first long trail in the La Mesa Dam watershed in Quezon City, Philippines when the midmorning monsoon rain fell. Afraid that the heavy downpour will make the terrain more dangerous than it was, I pedaled faster than my regular pace through the wet and slippery trails. There were smooth, round stones all over but those didn’t faze me because I was confidently connected to my KHS 2500 MTB. I rode those forest trails faster in the mud and rain than I would have done in a sunny day.
One word I can sum up my ride in this KHS full suspension bike – CONFIDENCE.
This was my email to my biker friends. Didn’t mention the bike because they knew what bike I was riding on. It was my experience that I wrote about. Read on:
