    Is the KHS Alite 500 a good frame?

    I'm getting a new KHS Alite 500 frame for $55. Where does the Alite 500 stand within the KHS model line-up? Also, am I getting a deal or it's noting to get all giddy about?

    Btw, KHS forum seems dead, so that's why I posted here.

    Dang, nobody? I ended up getting the frame. Couldn't pass it up. May build it up for myself or a for a future gf :P

    Very nice even came with original manual. It's disc and V-brake compatible.

    For $55 for a new frame, you can't go wrong. Pricepoint's generic, Sette frames go for $90 new. You did well, imho.

    While I was in the area, I met up with another CL seller and got a pair of M511(?) Deore shifters, which were in great shape for $15.

    I dunno... I'd think general discussion would be a good place for it if the KHS forum's a ghost town.

    To OP, though, no idea from me. Not too familiar with KHS stuff.

    Grrrr. Why do some people always assume that people haven't done a search before they have to creat a post asking a question? I did many Google searches and searched Bikepedia as well, also did an mtbr search too. Learned that the Alite 500 is pretty much an entry frame.

    Anyway, let's continue to give myself a pat for find a good deal :P
