KHS Urban Xtreme 100 mile update

I have put over 100 miles on the KHS Urban Xtreme. Some of these miles have been ‘leisure’ miles, like going to the beach, riding to the park or running errands. I’m really impressed with the Xtreme, my roadie buddies were also impressed with the Xtreme. I was able to draft and stay with them…
