    Ksh Am1000

    I'm buying a frame for 200 from our states mountain biking forum. Anyone have this? How is it? Looking forward to building it up

    Do you mean a KHS? If you do looks like a solid frameset at a great price.

    I have had the 2006 for several years. It is definetly strong. and can take the abuse.
    It is kinda heavy, my build came out a 33 lbs. w/xtr cranks, pike, fox dhx coil and 1800 gram wheel set. descends well, you can adjust the rear at 4, 5 and 6 inchs. It should corners on rails. 180 switch backs are a blast! I run wtb weirwolf 2.3s they're great on dry dusty, wet roots , granite. not good in sticky mud.

    have fun!

    Planning on building it up with a Marz 55 RV fork and some hayes stroker aces. I already have a 1x9 sram x9 set up on it.

    I would skip the 55rv. You can get a 55 tst2 or micro for great deals and you will be much happier with the performance.

    After a closer look, a khs am1000 is designed to fit a 130-140mm fork. At 160mm, a 55 will be to tall for the frame and cause you some problems.

    A lot of forks could fit the bill. A Marzochhi 44tst2 and sometimes micro ti can be had in that price range. You should be able to find a rock shox sektor RL, You might be able to find a Manitou Minute 140 for under 400.(no quick release 20mm axle, but still a 20mm axle). It really depends on what brand you are looking for. All the brands make decent stuff in your price range. I'm partial to Manitou myself.
