2015 KHS SixFifty 700 Mountain Bike Review

SixFifty Team Pictured

Let the trails take you places you've never been before - or just cruise your favorite Saturday trail - on KHS' SixFifty 700. 

With a 6061 double-butted aluminum frame as the backbone, the 700 is nimble for the tech and light for the climbs. Up front, a Manitou Marvel Comp fork handles the chatter and occasional big hits so you stay in control all ride long.

Stan's provides the rolling radness with 27.5-inch wheels wrapped in Maxxis Ardent tires so you navigate rock gardens with ease and bite into the corners like a pro.

You'll need that responsiveness once the smooth SRAM X1 drivetrain gets you up to speed and provides the perfect gear for all the undulations of your day on the trail. The 700 is topped off with fine components like a Kore handlebar and stem, plus a comfy WTB Volt Comp saddle.

Entry Level Road Bike - 2015 Raleigh Revenio 1 REVIEW

2015 Raleigh Revenio 1 - No Sacrifices

Endurance riders demand fast bikes that are comfortable enough to pedal for hours, the Revenio meets those demands.
The geometry has been updated with a slackened seat angle that shifts the rider’s center of gravity back and takes some weight off the handlebars. The result is reduced strain on wrists, elbows, neck, and lower back. Less fatigue translates into improved stamina and comfort.

  • All-new frame and fork
  • Lighter wheels with wider rims
  • Shimano Claris drivetrain
  • FSA compact crankset
  • Custom Raleigh components
