If you have to sit in the back seat to drive a car and stand flat-footed on the ground to clean your gutters, KHS’s Flite 747 is built for you. Its statuesque frame is designed by 6'6"-tall master framebuilder Lennard Zinn and built with trusted Reynolds 520 chromoly double-butted tubing for strength to match yours and a legendary ride quality that has made Reynolds the steel tubing choice for over a century. Its Weinmann XP Elite rims are laced up strong with 36 spokes each, making sure your sturdy-yet-supple Maxxis Detonator tires stay round even on choppy roads. For someone of your stature, 175mm cranks are not going to cut it. That’s why KHS spec’d the Flite 747 with a 200 or 210mm crankset (depending on frame size). The 22-speed drivetrain is rounded out with Shimano 105 components to deliver reliable, high-precision shifting and power transfer mile after mile. The bigger they are, the harder they…well, you won’t have to worry about that because the trustworthy and powerful Shimano 105 brakes will help you keep the rubber side down when speeds get critical. Finally, a rig that is larger than life, just like its rider.
