    My first road bike is a KHS, it's been very reliable and handles pretty good too. It's a flite 450, aluminum frame carbon fork+seatpost. Allowed me to learn to ride properly. Banged it around over potholes etc, still holding up fine. It even survived a car collision, but we were both very lucky there.

    Right now it serves as the winter trainer, which here in BC means I'll be riding it for the next 8 months... needless to say, it will get the job of base training in the crappy weather with fenders done very adequately.

    The only flaw with mine is a frame design fault, now with fenders I am experiencing toe overlap. This was noted by a review a magazine did, as well.

    IIRC, the contract manufacturer that KHS uses was/is the same company also doing work for Specialized.

    They own that company, actually. KHS makes bikes for quite a few other companies. Their own designs are fairly conservative though, making them solid beginner road bikes. I personally wouldn't buy a high end KHS road bike unless I was getting a huge discount. Their MTBs seem to have a much more prominent profile.

    My first mountain bike was an entry-level KHS. It wasn't the best, but it worked.
    Man up, dumb down, and do one gear.
