    Aside from a few components it looks pretty much identical to the Motobecane Boris. Top tube lengths are the same through all the sizes, cable guides are in the same place, the shape & bends in the tubing are identical.

    Boris has better rear derailleur & brakes for $400 less.
    No moss...

    When KHS first posted the bike, the MSRP was $1799 I think.
    So it looks like the Boris has caused them to drop their price already.

    Actually it is a totally different bike. I have the $1799 one. This is a different parts kit with what appears to be the same frame. The tires on the new one are pretty suspect, but other than that the parts look pretty serviceable.

    me too, I have the 1799 bike too. that is a lower model with lower specs. I have been having a blast with the bike....and replaced the tires with Husker Du and Nate. Studded Dillingers ready for icy snow too. Nothing wrong with this bike at all, it's great.
    I have too many bikes, but it's not enough

    Ah! I didn't see that there are now 2 models. Thanks for pointing that out.

    My guess is that this spec will be the Boris X7 that BD mentioned a few months back on Facebook for $695.

    Look at both pictures back to back very closely. They are so extremely identical down to the glare. Look at where the KHS logos are, and then check the Boris - it has photoshop smudges on it.

    Looks like KHS even copied their own picture for the two different models. The specs list two different kinds of brakes, but their brakes are the same. That, and the identical glare and perspective all over.
