I'm a 65 y/o with knee replacements, bad back & hip & was in need of a more forgiving ride but wanted to increase my mileage. For me a bike fit, specific exercises for my disabilities and the KOBH with Campy Chorus 11 compact has been my dream come true.
I live in S Central TX & ride on a lot of chip stone roads, which are hard on tires & old bodies. I find the KOBH with Conti Gatorskin 25's at 90psi holds the road well, corners nicely, climbs like a dream & is overall the bike I have been looking for. I am partial to Pinarello frames & Campy components so for me this is a perfect combo.
The KOBH frame feels much like the reviews say it will. It absorbs the road shock well & has good clearences for wider tires. I'm not a reviewer or super-roadie, just an old guy who has been riding for awhile and wanted to keep riding. I was looking for a bike that would feel good on harsh roads yet still handle well as I got my legs back under me. This bike has fulfilled that dream for me and I couldn't be happier with my choice.
I hope this helps someone make a similar decision to mine.
