    That’s a pretty tight looking design…

  2. Oliver Says:

    Pivot on the chain stay? Did the pony up the big bucks for a Horst Link?

  3. mac (aka farley) Says:

    This looks a bit like the VooDoo Canzo, which if memory serves was developed in Flag. . . Hmmm. . .

  4. George Krpan Says:

    Link to the Flagstaff’s specifications on the KHS Canada website.
    http://www.khscanada.com/viewbike/425/
    The list price is $2299 (Canadian).

    Looks good. If it’s anywhere near as good as the Tucson then it will be a very good bike.
    One of the nice things about KHS bikes are that they are available through any bike store. My LBS gave me a great deal on a Tuscon and would probably do the same on a Flagstaff.

  5. Guitar Ted Says:

    The Hayes/Sun/Wheelsmith connection shows up here. Funny they couldn’t swing a Manitou on the front too. Then Hayes Bicycle Group would have it all sewn up! 🙂

    Anyway, this is an intriguing bike. I will be curious as to the length of the chainstays and other geometry specs. Sort of looks like an Intense if I squint hard enough. 😉

  6. ty Says:

    Looks a bit pricey considering the spec – Tora, X7 (for KHS that is).

  7. 12snap Says:

    KHS uses the Horst link on their 26″ wheeled bikes. Looks like they’re using it here, too.

  8. Mtn Wrench Says:

    Actually,

    The spec on the KHS Canada website is incorrect. The correct spec will be available soon.

  9. ML Says:

    It is pictured with a Reba and it looks similarly spec’d to a Gary Fisher Caliber which will run you just a little under $2000. If the price is right on the KHS Canada site the bike will cost about $2080.00 USD. Considering it’s a 4 Bar instead of the single pivot I’d say it’s worth the extra $100.00.

  11. Wade M Says:

    I have one on order (March Release) from the LBS for $1650.00

  12. JK Says:

    Wade, whats your LBS? I’d pony up 1650 for one of these badboys in a new york second!

  13. Wade M Says:

    JK,

    Alpha Bicycles, Vista, CA. (760) 724-9822 “Chris”

  14. Wade M Says:

    It’s the end of March. LBS says “A couple more weeks” This waitin’ is driving me nuts.

    wadem

  15. Wade M Says:

    The end of April is near. Still no bike. There are many 4 letter explitives that describe this condition.

  16. Troy Hudson Says:

    What is the weight on these bikes. I’m considering one but at that price point they must be in the 30+ lb range. It looks like a strong design. In Canada these bigs have JUST arrived across the border. Understand many production delays this season. Anyone actually riding one yet?

  17. Troy Hudson Says:

    What’s the HT angle. Could you run a longer travel fork in the future?

  18. Wade M Says:

    It’s May, hoorah (tiny exclamation point)

    LBS says this week (4/05/2008)

    Let’s wait and see (my MTB.comm review)
