    “2012 KHS Alite 2000 Frame size 15" ghost white”

    The Good:

    The geometry really fits me. Very light (less than 1.6 kilograms) i like the weldings and the paint, looks expensive with Shimano Deore XT group set, and Sram components. XT wheel set plus Selle Italia Saddle and Kenda Klimax Lite 1.95 for road and Maxxis Nevegal 1.95 for trail.

    The Bad:

    So far I have'nt notice anything wrong with this frame, i just bought the frame last june 6, 2012.

    Overall Review:

    For me,,, this frame is really great for me. I like the geometry, weight, and weldings and paints,
