Aug 4, 2001 2:03 PM
Anyone have any experience with the KHS Flite 300? Im new to the sport of cycling and dont want to sink alot of $$ on my first bike. Would the KHS be good to start with or should I bite the bullet and sink 1k into a bike?
Thanks

I am also just starting and I'm looking at the Trek 1000 and the KHS Flite 300. I'm thinking of going with the KHS simply because the frame is CroMoly which is known for smoother long rides (I want it for endurance training). They both have basically the same components but the KHS has all Shimano (cranks also) whereas the Trek has lower line cranks and such. They have been recommended to me equally but the KHS got a good review in Bicycling magazine. I hope I haven't clouded the issue for you. Good luck.

1K? you can get Flite 300 for 400$ at http://www.bikeswholesale.com/
It is a good beginer/commuter bike check reviews.

It isn't light and you're looking at replacing tires and upgrating pedals at one point. CroMo frame absorbs shock pretty good, I rode a few double centuries on it and I was beat up less then after riding century on Al frame. Geometry is mainstream, nothing weird. Depend on your your milege it'll lasts you for a few years, when you ready to buy Ti good luck

I purchased the KHS Flite 300 for my daughter 4 months ago as we are both just getting into road biking. She absolutely loves it. I ended up purchasing the Fuji Finest (about $600), because she didn't want me to ride the same exact bike. Wouldn't be cool in her eyes to ride the same set up as dad. The Fuji Finest has been a gread bike as well. Both are cro-moly. Good luck!
