I test rode the step-through version of the KHS Green. This bike has a partial chaincase, fenders, colour-matched rack and rim brakes.
This was the cheapest of the bikes that I was considering and it definitely felt like it. Just everything about this bike felt slightly… cheap and like ti might fall apart at any minute. The saddle that was on the bike was the most bizarre uncomfortable thing ever – and I’m not super picky about saddles!
If someone had a hard limit of $500 I think it would be much more worthwhile to get a used bike and fix it up than to get the KHS Green. I would not recommend this bike.
Stay tuned for my next post with my impressions of the Norco Cityglide.
