New For 2011 From KHS: The Prescott 29″ Full Suspension Bike

Everyone’s jumping on the bandwagon, and this bandwagon is rolling over obstacles and absorbing bumps in a heretofore unprecedented manner. That’s because it is a fully-suspended, 29″ wheel-havin’ bandwagon. KHS is getting in on the action with its entry, The Prescott. The basics: The Prescott is a 29er with 80mm of front wheel travel and 3.5″ rear wheel travel. The rear travel is provided by a tried and true 4-bar Horst link. This bike leap frogs over KHS’ previous 29″ offering, the Flagstaff, to become the top-end 29″ full suspension bike in the line with its $3699.99 price tag.

You picking up on a naming theme here? ‘Cause I am. Naming bikes after Arizona towns provides a deep and interesting pool to draw from.

We might see bikes from KHS in the future with bad-ass names like the “Bone Yard” or  “Two Guns.” It is less likely that we will see the “Goobertown” or the “Nothing.”

The names are because people are crazy for 29ers out here in AZ! I’m a mechanic that moved out here a year ago, and I’ve never seen so many people riding 29ers. But then again majority of the riding is XC, and they seem to love their endurance races too.
