The Kinesis KM220L is a ladies specific hardtail bike, and its got glowing reviews from the bike mags. We built one up and took it on quite a few rides. Our verdict is that the reviewers were right, its very light thanks to the smaller size specific tubing and new ‘Kinesium’ tubing used. It’s also responsive, the very stiff frame helping get all your effort through the pedals and to where it counts – this thanks to the down tube being flared and flattened where it meets the bottom bracket. The geometry is spot on with a shortened top tube making for an easy reach for the shorter female torso.
