I’m a very big fan of single speed commuter bikes. They are simple, easy to maintain and no messy derailleur adjustments are necessary. My commute is somewhat flat, so a single speed bike is a good candidate to ride to and from work.
It has been a while since we have tested a KHS commuter bike, so I jumped at the opportunity of testing the KHS Urban Uno. I think that the Urban Uno is a good looking bike; the flat metal fenders, the gold crankset, brown saddle and the brown wrapped bullhorns give it a unique but classy look.
Check out the small detail on the fork
Gold crankset with a 44t X 16t drivetrain. Sorry, no chainguard.
KHS saddle with a faux leather look, comfy too!
I rode the Urban Uno yesterday to work, the bike felt fast, responsive but not twitchy and very comfortable. Did I mention that this bike is made out of steel? Yup, the steel frame was a joy to ride especially since the tires were inflated to 110 psi and the frame “cut the edge” of the road chatter.
The bike can also accommodate a rear rack, but it does not come with a full chainguard (chainring guard was included but I opted not to install it). The bike does not come with a flip-flop hub so front and rear brakes are included. Pedals with toe clips are also standard.

I will be posting a full review once I put in more miles on this bike — stay tuned.
