Review

The BNT 29er from KHS is the bike for the tallest of riders. Don't worry about back pain anymore from jockeying a bike that's many sizes too small. KHS sells this bike in an XXL and an XXXL frame size to accommodate well-statured riders. Pair the accommodating frame size with the 29 inch wheels and you have a bike that most NBA professionals can use during their off-season.

The frame is constructed of CrMo steel (a.k.a. Chrome-Moly) in order to sufficiently support a bigger rider. From looking and testing this bike, I can tell that KHS made sure this build with hold up to major punishment.

KHS knows that a bigger person requires greater stopping power, that's why they went with larger rotors and precision hydraulic brakes. Manitou forks provide you with 120mm of travel, reducing the amount of bumps and bangs you'd get from a rigid fork.

The BNT 29er is also an attractive bike. It looks intimidating without a rider on it.

This would be a great off-road bicycle for riders over 6.5 feet tall. At up to XXXL size, the frame should fit most tall riders, and if you need something larger, you'll probably have to get it custom built.

Kudos to KHS for thinking about tall riders and not just the average height riders that buy most bikes. If you're a taller rider sick of riding a mini bike and looking to stretch your legs, it's time to do yourself a favor and checkout this KHS.

Details

For big riders, it can be hard to find a mountain bike that fits. Enter the BNT 29 from KHS Bicycles. This monster is sized especially for tall riders in the market for a high-performance XC rig. The BNT features a Reynolds steel frame and a plush Manitou Marvel fork. Shimano XT and Deore components make up the drivetrain and braking system, and parts from Kore, FSA, Stan's, and Maxxis finish the bike off.
