The KHS Distributor in Peru had some interesting artwork painted in their offices. Wall graffiti done by one of the most renown urban painters in Lima. You can see his art all around the city. You can see the Kali logo and KHS in the bike frame. By the way, the cat is their pet cat named Miu…

Best Mountain Bikes of Interbike 2012
From bikes with 27.5-inch wheels, to 29ers, to a few good old 26-inch options, here are the coolest models we saw at the annual bike industry trade show. —Louis Mazzante
Yes, 27.5-inch wheels (aka 650b) are invading the downhill
category. KHS rider Logan Binggeli has been testing versions of this 27.5 DH bike for several weeks and was so impressed he chose to ride it at last weekend’s Red Bull Rampage
. Building around the new mid-size wheels
, KHS lowered the bottom bracket .25 inches, reduced the head angle by half a degree to 63.5, shortened the chainstay .5 inches and extended the front center—the effective toptube is 2 inches longer than its existing DH platform. In downhill testing, KHS team manager Quinton Spaulding said the 27.5 bike was five seconds faster than a similar 26-inch version over a four-minute DH course.
Logan Binggeli dials in his line choices during post qualifying practice for the top 80 today.Binggeli qualified 67th but knows he can break through the top 30.
Kevin Aiello had a solid qualifier landing the 40th spot. After today’s session, Aiello feels strong for a top 30 finish in tomorrows finals.
Please stay tuned for more updates!
