    Looking forward to hearing about both models…especially that tourer — that looks like a great machine!

    Is there a relationship between KHS & Torelli?

    The KHS Urban Uno looks much like the Torelli Tipo Uno ( with the bullhorn bars)

    Totally different bike…the Urban Uno has a “compact geometry” frame and different components. It is stylistically similar (color and accents), but so are many bikes on the market these days…it’s just a classic look.

    Always glad to see more touring bikes.

    I’m a little confused. Moe said that these were new ’08 KHS models, right? Then why is it that it seems like every other manufacturer is promoting their ’09’s?

    Other than that, more info on that tourer and any updates on the Urban X/Xpress would be nice.

    It might just be a typo.

  8. Moe September 25, 2008 7:32 pm 

    My bad… got too excited

    urban commuters with racks and fenders!

    I know that I’m new around here, but I feel magnetically compelled to say that I am in love with that Uno. If only I wasn’t already married….

    Whoever installed/spec’d those fenders, should be fired. Yuck. Fenders should be equal distance from the tire at all points. I’m glad that neither of these bikes have the KHS “signature” wet-noodle seat-stays. Also glad to see another smart company that realizes bar-end shifters are WAY smarter than any type of brifters on a touring bike (or any bike for that matter).
