 KHS ?!?!?!?!?!
Does anyone know anything about the KHS mountain bikes? I'm thinking of getting one but, I can't really find any current reviews. Are they any good? What are the cons? Any info will help, thanks!

    KHS has some new bikes for 2009 which work really well and have proven designs. Depending what kind of rider you are, here's my suggestions;
    For cross country I would check out any of their 4' travel bikes, all of them have four bar linkages (just like Specialized) and a Horst Link which makes them a TRUE four bar, the best one is the 604 (for the money). Very efficient on climbs, fast, and pretty good on the downhills.
    If you need more of a trail bike they have some 5" travel bikes called the 555, 535, & 525. Still four bar linkages, but they look very different.
    A new 6" bike called the Velvet is available for tougher trails or you can go all out and get the Lucky 7 freeride/DH bike with 7+ inches of travel (recently got a great review in Mountain Bike Action).

    Hope that helps!

    KHS makes nice bikes. They definitely don't have the cool factor that some other brands have, but they make well well-made, well-designed adn very reasonably priced bikes. You'd be hard pressed to find a bike with similar component specs in their price range. I'm looking at getting the 604 soon myself.
