    nice looking bike just came across this video:
    Breaking in KHS lucky 7 at Angelous Oaks trail



    not too exciting just a downhill ride, pretty smooth, but you feel like screaming at the rider change up some gears! He's egg beating for a bit there.

    On Sale! $1,599.99

    And a review on the bike:
    Impressive for the price

    15 October 2012
    ProsGood Value, Good Quality, Looks Great, Durability


    Bought this bike a couple months ago and so far i'm very happy with it.
    I didn't have any experience with KHS so did my research before buying. The online reviews were good and the component list was impressive for the price, Marz 66 rcv's up front plus a RS kage rc on the back are plush and provide all the adjustability you'd ever want on a freeride bike. Sram x7's shift nice and haven't missed a beat.
    The frame is solid, looks quality and rides nicely.
    Avid elixer 1's are bottom of the line but haul up nicely and aren't far off the braking power of more expensive brakes i've tried.
    The stock WTB's are surprisingly grippy in the dry but turn to slicks when things get wet and are a bit thin for my liking.
    Some issues i've noticed include the cable routing of the derailer line. It was really close to the chain and suffered a lot of chain strike so I ended up re-routing it which has saved it from wearing through. The paint work is a wee bit thin in places but hey, its a mountain bike not a museum piece and the stock grips were white but turned into a smart shade of brown after a couple rides.

    Overall, a quality rig for the price.
