    update on the 2007 solo one.

    the two-in-one flats it came with are gone.

    the saddle in this image was switched with another WTB model that i like better.

    so is the OEM headset, brake levers and brakes.

    if i ever get around to it, it'll get cable actuated disc brakes.

    picked up the frame at the Toronto spring bike show for 299
    had the rims from my giant
    Had the raceface cranks and chainring
    had the bars and shocks
    new parts were a XT cassette, SLX brakes front and back, SRAm chain and a new stem since my shocks just fit through I had to get a steeper stem to make up for no spacers
    bought a shim for the seatpost so I could reuse my 27.2 KS dropper
    total cost of bike was under a grand

    This is my trail/commuting bike. Everything on it has been upgraded when I sold my Iron Horse Bootleg frame as it was a tad too small for me. All the parts from that were put on this when I bought it (and sold all the parts).



    Pretty happy with how it rides. I prefer intermediate - advanced trails with a few drops, jumps and technical sections. But for my more sedate trails and riding the pavement I have this bike. I have a spare set of wheels with some Maxxis Detonators on for commuting.

    Some new stuff for the old gal!
    Added a few pieces to my 99 soft tail so figured I'd share call it a mix of a picture update and a what did you do to your KHS update.

    Gone is my riser bar in its place a flat Concepts USA bar off a damaged Univega Boralyn including new bar ends

    Also removed is the Judy Hydrocoil shock and back where it belongs is the original Manitou Spydr R with fresh elastomers and oil. (I just couldn't handle the color clash)

    So while mostly for cosmetics the old girl has some new life rides a lil softer and gives me a better ridding position now.

    Happy Trails!

    Here's mine, KHS Alite 1000. If I remember correctly I bought it in 2010 & almost abruptly put it in storage until a few weeks ago. I test rode the Alite 500 but wanted different options that came stock on the 1000, so they ordered it for me. Things happen, life takes different turns & new hobbies suffer. I packed it with me to Upstate New York for excercise & entertainment while I'm not working. I don't find myself all that attracted to riding off road at this time. Then again I'm trying to build up my riding stamina & get it broke in & sorted out. It's a fine bike with all the features I wanted from limited research before the purchase. Plus I got it from the only LBS left in my home town. I felt good making the purchase from them & helped them prosper a little more in the process. They are a more road bike oriented shop. The other 2 shops we used to have catered to bmx, freestyle & skateboarding; that was before dedicated skates shops popped up everywhere. I digress, here's my obligatory pic!



    After looking at my join date for this forum, I did get it in 2010 :thumbsup:

    Was your XCT 535 a horst link bike? how would you compare the two suspension designs? Can't find much info on the 7200 suspension design and performance. Also, do you know what your bike weighs?

    thanks!

    I'm wondering about the suspension design on the 2015 as well. It doesn't help when neither the manufacturer nor the reviewers 1) Write anything about the suspension design and 2) post any photos of the left side of the bike.

    Honestly, it's quite aggravating. So if you could enlighten us, stiingya, I'd appreciate it.

    Last year in Mountain Bike action they reviewed the KHS 7500, which is the same design (although I hear 2015 had a minor update) and they loved it (not that MBAction is the best source). They had stated that KHS was not going to release it, it was designed for their downhill bikes. I too am looking at the 7200, there is a review I found, a shootout in Canada and they liked the bike, but stated it felt cramped. I am almost 6' so I would go for a large, they had a medium. Also, Canada got a Manitou fork (fine by me)... Here is the link:

    There's a small pic of a KHS rep or something with the green and black 7200 in the latest mountain bike action. But other than a quick comment about the good parts spec and how good of a rider the KHS rep is there was no new info...?

    KHS should be sending these out to anyone who'd test them! Hey KHS, if you read this send me a XL so I can ride the heck out of it and post all over the internet my experience! :)

    thanks!

    It was the horst link. To be honest, I'm not a suspension guru or anything but let me give it a shot. I can tell you the 7200 rides really nice on the trails I frequent. Great for hitting drops and throwing through corners. Pike upfront is fantastic. The Monarch in the rear could probably be upgraded to something a little more refined but it delivers good performance. It's maybe not the greatest climber in the world but it gets up them just fine in my opinion. I much prefer to be going down, which is where this bike shines. Weighs about 32lbs. Could probably get closer to 30 if you upgrade to a 1x drivetrain and make a few other part swaps.

    If you live in or near Missouri, I'd be happy to meet up and let you try a spin on it. Otherwise, I think its linkage is very similar in performance to my friend's 27.5 Remedy.

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions about the 7200.

    I've had it for two weeks now and have been riding it nearly daily since I got it! To be honest, my review may not be worth much. The bike this replaced was a 26" 1998 Rockhopper hardtail with a stretched out geometry and Rockshox XC28 fork. In short, this bike is incredible, but I'm fairly certain I'd think that of most any full suspension 29er =)

    In long, it's a beast. I'm 6'0" riding a medium that came with a 110mm stem and it fits great, though I'm going to change out for a shorter stem. Every ride I've gone on so far have been on trails, or b-lines that were way too sketchy on my last bike to do safely/fast/at all, and with the Flagstaff I can cruise through all of them like they were nothing. The Reba Soloair in the front gives me zero complaints and was easy to set up. The Monarch in the rear I have set up real plush at a low PSI to get every mm of travel, yet I don't notice a loss of power in my short-burst climbs. Group set is well picked as Deore/SLX, which fits my needs well. A lot of people complain about the Avid Elixer 3 brakes, but so far they're ok. Most people complain about them needing frequent bleeding but I haven't owned it long enough to say. The wheel set is actually decent, I weighed the rear w/o cassette at just under 1300 grams, and assume the front is around 1000. Stock bike weighs in at #31. I don't anticipate doing much upgrading besides a dropper post, and that makes me happy.

    Biggest thing I can say is that this bike is FAST. It's mostly being my switch to a 29er, and running Vee Rubber 'Flying V' tires, but my old times for everything have been demolished. The average-ish to short-ish wheel base has been good for picking through rock gardens, and I haven't had any trouble getting the front wheel where I want it on switchbacks and tricky sections.

    Only real complaint I can give is that the main triangle geometry is just a little TOO tight with the rear shock to fit in a water bottle. You could do it, but you'd have to fight every time and make sure you didn't hit the lock-out lever. I also wouldn't do much serious downhill on the bike, but a shorter stem would probably change my mind.

    And besides all that, to me, the bike has super sleek aesthetic despite being FS that I'd need to pay thousands more to see in other brands!

    Strange that you went for a medium. I'm 5'7" and reckon would fit on a medium, albeit with a shorter stem (I fit on a medium KHS Winslow with a 90-mm stem just fine).
    Great to know you're liking the bike!

    More 7200 info. Check out the prototype for next years model. D@M that looks sweet!

    First Impression: KHS SixFifty 7200

    It's really weird and frustrating that there just doesn't seem to be any good information on the suspension design/pedal efficiency, etc. There never seems to be more than casual reference to it or it gets lumped in with how the bike rides in general. Weird...

    And also, who is the idiot who spec'd that long of a stem and narrow of handlebars on a 2015 enduro bike with a 160mm of travel? Time warp back to 2005 or something?

    Just had to post of photo of my number 2 bike, my KHS xc-204. My 29er was not available due to a "structural failure" so I took this bike out for a short ride last night. Although it needs some TLC, still a great bike. Does anyone know if there is an after market 27.5 swing arm for these?

    Just purchased my first full-suspension and non-26er--a 2015 SixFifty 5500 on closeout from a local LBS.

    Will be several days before it's delivered to the shop (and probably many, many more before it's put through its paces), but looking forward to a different sort of ride.

    Finally made an effort to snap some pics. Our trails here in southeast Idaho are still snowy/muddy, so I can't comment intelligently on how the bike handles dirt--the 100 or so miles I've put in this month have been on pavement and hill climbs.

    Attachment 1052327

    As shipped, the bike (without pedals) weighed 30.2 pounds--a pound or two lighter than I expected for this price point. After adding pedals, replacing the seat, converting the drivetrain to 1x10, and going tubeless, the bike now weighs 29.2 pounds.

    Attachment 1052325

    I also replaced the top cap. o.O

    Attachment 1052326

    Overall, I'm very happy with the build and feel. Nitpicks would be the 4-inch dropper (5- or even 6-incher would've been ideal) and the stock 80mm stem feels longish. Looking forward to spring.

    Thanks, DenVen. Some of our lower trails are finally dry enough to ride, and I've taken advantage, but barely 20 miles' worth so far. Having only ridden 26-inch hardtails, it's strange to be on a bigger-wheeled squishy, but my initial impressions are that I'm going to really, really like this bike.

    Although I can't yet provide any technical feedback on the ride, I can say that I'm very impressed with the overall quality. For what I paid (less than 60 percent of list), this is a lot of bike--stealth routing for derailleur cables, full SLX drivetrain, dropper post, (low-end) Shimano hydraulics, lightweight X-Fusion suspension (my 130mm hardtail has a Velvet fork), and sturdy wheels that weigh less than my 26-inch Mavic Crosstrails despite being bigger and wider.

    Tubeless conversion was simple--the wheels came with Stan's yellow tape installed. I just pulled the tubes, slapped in some new valves, and aired them up. Even without sealant, they held air for two months.

    As stated previously, the bike is relatively light. And the "electric" blue color reminds me of the WR Blue that Subaru offered when it first debuted the Impreza WRX in 2002.

    Anyway, we'll see how long the honeymoon lasts. Until then, happy trails.

    Well spoken, sir. I'm having a blast so far--nearly 500 miles and counting, with a 100 in the past week thanks to some glorious spring weather.

    I swapped in a new stem--35mm Kore Repute--and a lighter, narrower saddle. Much easier to get behind the seat now, even with "just" a 100mm dropper. Drawback is, on extremely steep climbs, cockpit feels a bit cramped and the fork wants to wander, but that's on me more than anything. I'll adapt.

    Glad you've had a chance to get out. In Denver we've had two big late snow storms so I haven't been riding much. But I did go skiing one last time. In 2 weeks I'm heading to Western CO. to get some good riding in. Happy trails.

    Yeah, I've been in full trail mode with this bike since March. Quit skiing, and haven't been fishing since the second week of February. Over 600 miles now ... slapped on some better rubber, an extended-range cassette, and a new derailleur to better accommodate the extra teeth. Bike's weight is down to 28.6 pounds. I've lost at least 10 pounds so far, but would greatly benefit from 15 more.

    Hope you get some good weather and time to ride soon. If nothing else, come out this way. :thumbsup:

    Great view, Luis. Nice bike. Where is that? I've never seen trees like that ... they are like Dr. Seuss' interpretation of a fir.
