    Solo One Soft Tail

    Has anyone had any experience with this bike? Also, how bouncy is the rear end on these? Would it be better to just go with a hardtail and a suspension seat post? I admittedly know nothing about KHS so I was wondering what a good price for one would be. I'm looking at one on ebay with a Marzocchi fork and hope front disc. Any input would help!

    I have a 24speed KHS soft tail. I like the soft tail a lot. It's not bouncy. It does not eliminate bumps. It just softens the impact. Unlike a suspension seatpost, it is active when out of the saddle (that's most of the time for a single speed rider) It requires no more maintenance than a hard tail. It's a good fit for me.
