    “2013 KHS SixFifty 5500”

    The Good: Price, good descender

    The Bad: Cockpit can feel a bit cramped

    Overall Review:

    Been riding this bike for about 9 months. Great all-mountain bike.  Perfect for someone on a budget that still knows how to mash down the mountain.  Only complaint is that the cockpit feels cramped when climbing, but I didn't buy this thing to go fast uphill.  Not the best components, but good bike to start with, or to build from.
