Date Reviewed: March 7, 2002

Strengths:    Light, stiff, yet comfortable. Handles well both on and off road. Good mud clearance. Great welds and finish. Chrome-green paint!

Weaknesses:    No barrel adjusters (had to install some in-lines) but fair considering the intended use.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fun machine, also a great race bike. The frame somehow manages to be stiff without being harsh. Also very light. My bare frame (57cm) weighs in at around 3.6lbs. Great fun on singletrack. It's surprising what you can go over with those skinny tires. Did a MTB race a few weeks ago and was kicking ass until I got a pinch flat. Works great on the road also. Climbs well and still has a smooth ride on rough pavement. Kinda pricey, but well worth the extra cash.

Kelly Knobby X Woes

I recently prchased a Knoby X and in my excitement of actually finding one I completely screwed myself and forgot to ask if it was an older model with the flared chainstays and 135 spaced or a newer model that could accept a double ring and was 130 spaced. Well, unfortuneately for me it is an older ... Read More »
