Expirience with the BH ULTIMATE 8.5

BH ULTIMATE 8.5 Review When it comes to riding in light terrain, the BH feels really good. When it comes down to handling, BH does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the BH Hardtail is ready for the majority of singletrails. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. Considering that in the range under 4500 Euro, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice!
