KHS 4 SEASON 3000
By John Ker
With all the amazing, lightweight, full-suspension bikes that have come out in the last year, it might seem crazy to pick the KHS 4 Season 3000 as one of my favorite bikes of the year. But, after we reviewed the bike in our November issue, I started taking it out for late-afternoon rides myself, and I kept having a blast every time. I had thought that this bike would be as hard to turn as a monster truck, but it seemed like it turned sharper than any bike I could remember. I’m also amazed by this bike’s ability to climb steep hills. That may sound crazy, since it weighs more than 37 pounds—almost twice as much as the world’s lightest cross-country race bikes.
To be honest, when I first saw this bike, I thought it looked a little ridiculous with its 26×4.8-inch tires, but to my surprise, every time I take it out, I forget about my initial doubts and I have a great time riding it.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
