KHS Aero Turbo

Some history on the bike: KHS approached three masters of the fast bike: Boone Lennon, Lennard Zinn and Steve Hed, and hit them with the idea of designing a fundamentally aerodynamic bicycle that could be brought to the masses, a bicycle that would function nearly as well as a dedicated crit bike and could still time trial as well as a dedicated time-trial bike. Lofty expectations? Definitely. Zinn, Hed and Lennon went into the project with a few requirements in mind. For Zinn the bike had to handle well - there didn't seem to be much point in making a bike aerodynamic if the rider couldn't hold the position or if it felt squirrelly through the corners. Hed wanted a machine that gave the rider an aerodynamic advantage just by climbing aboard. The final hurdle was making sure the rider was in an aero dynamically efficient position in order to capitalise on the bike's assets.

Thanks! Yours was sweet too! No story, just picked up the frame from an old bike shop and built it up with some components that I had laying around.
