    KHS Fat Bike Listed

    I seem to recall reading mention of this, but not much excitement.

    4 SEASON 3000 | KHS Bicycles

    I don't see too much cause for excitement just yet. It seems a rather low spec for the price point. Also seems like they went off half cocked by showing only 13" frame geometry and telling us nothing about the hub width or tire clearance.

    Seems they will have a hard time competing with the Fatboy at that price.

    But they're right in the ballpark for competing with the pugsley.

    More is better, Glad to see more choices enter the field, Though I gotta say, of the new bikes I thing the trek and the specialized are the best looking (for whatever that matters). I will never ever be a fan of that damned swoopy toptube.

    Looks like a pretty good build for the money, and a better deal than the Kona.

    I agree - it looks like a big fat bloke sat on it.

    I dislike curved tubes but on a fatbike it does make sense to have a low standover - although it can be done quite easily with straight tubes.

    Something goofy there. 13" isn't even offered on the specs page and the chart is missing all the real sizes they do offer.

    seeing as the 135mm fixed dropout frame from 9:Zero:7 seems to have been discontinued, it's probably the same frame.

    At first glance, I thought I was looking at the Sun Spider AT frame.

    BikesDirect sell a Motobecane that is IDENTICAL to this KHS...I rode a large KHS, probably need an XL but it's a nice bike, especially since BD is selling theirs for $800 less than the same KHS!!
