KHS - The First Week (111miles)

08 Aug 2007 at 14:17 Filed Under:
KHS Solo One - Winter Hill

Still not happy with the build of this bike, the forks feel odd after 104 consecutive rigid fork rides (just too bouncy), the front loses grip very easily in corners (longer stem might sort this), the softtail 'shock' clearly needs greasing up as it's sticking. It rides like you have a flat rear tyre, not sure if that's good or not, after riding rigid for so long any bike with any suspension would probably feel like a big jelly.

[Very windy, cool, 26miles, Very hard work - I was almost wishing I had 29inch wheels]
