Just in time for spring, we've beefed up our selection with new bikes from KHS. Come try out the Urban Xpress commuters. These sturdy Reynolds 520 steel rides are built to handle all kinds of urban obstacles from bumpy patches to hills. The tight upright cockpit and hybrid gearing will get you there comfortably without leaving you gassed. Read more about them here
Also in the spring lineup is the Green 8e, simple elegance on two wheels. An 8 speed drivetrain simplifies it for you while giving you enough gear range to manage the terrain. The 8e's classic swept back touring bars with sew up grips and sprung saddle will get you there in comfort and style. They come fully equipped as well including, fenders, rear rack and a bell all for an awesome low price of just $490.
