I'm being given one to use but have never seen one before. I'm a little nervous about saying I'll ride it for a year in case it's no good. I'm hoping for a stiff, responsive bike. What are your impressions?

I'm a plus size clydesdale (240lbs) and was searching for a stiff aluminum frame that wouldn't break the bank. BB area is very stiff which is usually where I experience troubles. Steers quick enough also. Bought the frame and built up with Open Pro's, the combo has proven near bulletproof, except for that pesky click coming from the rear rim :( . I'll have to glue the pins back in place when I feel like getting around to breaking down the wheel. The frame doesn't have the sex appeal of something fancy and won't get a second look from most, but it will carve through a corner like it's on rails. Sprints well also.

It's 853 steel. But in my experience, having owned several KHS bikes, they are a no frills, bang for the buck company. They make a solid, affordable, top notch frame. The only thing lacking is sex appeal as the previous poster said. But I don't want a museum quality piece of for my race bike.
