    Post your KHS pics

    I'll start.

    I picked up my XC-604 freshly built early 2010 from a local rider that decided he liked cx better.

    I have new BWW wheels on order and plan on ditching the dual control levers also. The new wheels are red hub/rim Pure XCR with black nipples/spokes and I have a few red things I can add to finish the color scheme.

    I tow our Adams Trail-a-bike shifter around with it and have had the kids on some trails with it also---works great.

    Here's an older pic of my KHS XC-204 I built up. I've since upgrade the shock to Monarch 4.2 and the fork to a Reba Team. I need to take a pic.

    Since this is the "official" post your KHS pics thread, I'll repost mine for you all to gander at. Weighs in at 30ish pounds as told by the bathroom scale.

    What is the difference between the XC series frames? I have a XC-604 that I keep promising picks of ( sometime this week) and it looks just like the XC-204.....

    Same frame to my knowledge, just different level of components like rear shock.

    The difference is the shock the frame comes with. I believe the Team frames are made of lighter 7075 Aluminum. The design of all the frames are the same.

    Well, technically the XCT is not part of the XC group. It has the "T" in it's name.
    But yeah, the XC*04 all shared the same frame, just different shock.

    Trick? Technical? Trail?

    Right. the XC 2-6 series are same with dif components. There is some other '5' series complete bikes too, but they have a different linkage setup then the XCT 555 frame (me thinks....) then I'm getting.

    The 'Team' is more of a XC 'race' setup given the 7000 series aluminum material. Looks similar to the Giant NRS of old. If economy starts back up soon I may pick up one of those frames to build up a rocket aswell.

    All good, technically speaking ofcourse.

    After I get my new Pure wheelset, I may finally throw mine on a scale. Or maybe I'll just weigh the wheels and be happy...

    Here's mine!



    It's a 1993 KHS Montana Comp. It doesn't look like this anymore, as I'm currently working on rebuilding it.

    Right now, all it's got left on it is the Derailleurs, wheels and crank. The bike was left out in rainy weather for a few seasons, and it has some rust on the frame in certain areas, like the air vent above the rear wheel on the triangle. I'm not sure if this will affect the integrity of the frame or cause it to be dangerous to ride or not? Any tips to determine if the frame is still worth salvaging? I guess if it's not, I'll just salvage what components I have and buy some random frame to throw them on.

    PS Glad we finally got a KHS forum!

    Stationary mode



    Muddy Mode



    100k race mode




    Oh, should tell you what it is, its a XC-604 SE. Its an Australian special (well, as far as I know). It was the same as the standard 604 but it a Pearl White colour and had better spec's.

    that's a really nice 604. the angle of the 2nd photo makes it look like the crank arm is sticking straight out haha.

    How about a crappy shot of my XC-604 with Trail-a-bike attached laying on the side of the trail while we have Kool-aid/granola bars?

    We did about 3 miles at Waverly Park here in Louisville. That's our almost 9 year old and she said it was the most fun she's ever had. I'll be picking up a 24" mtb for her once I see one for sale on CL or otherwise locally. She's actually ridden Mommy's 29"er even though she can't touch ground on it yet.

    Just imagine it with WTB Velociraptors for tires.

    I didn't weigh them separately, but with tires/rotors/cassette (no skewers) I got 8.2lbs for the set setup tubeless. I do know they're tons lighter than the cheap used ones I had on it just by feeling them, stronger too.

    Those Montana Comp's are great classic bikes. I sold mine (I still regrete it) a fun bike for some old school playing around.....

    Lucky 7

    Here it is... my Lucky 7...in stock form (except for the handlebar)



    At a local DH race we had at our little patch of forest...







    Got a medium for my 6ft frame, perfect fit by the way.Changed some stock stuff like the handle bar to RF FR Atlas (all 31 inches of it), stem to 50mm 25 deg rise Hope FR, grips to Oury lockons, pedals to DaBomb Bullethole, Hubs to Hope 20mm FR and 150mmx12 RR, Cassette to SRAM PG980 (to accomodate the new hubs) and finally, tires to Schwalbe Muddy Mary 2.5 FR and Bontrager Big Earl 2.8 RR. Will be installing an MRP dual chain guide later this week...riding at 41lbs all in all.

    Thanks...got that in mind, thought of going Saint with the transmission components but I figured, I was going to thrash it anyway since I'm new to the sport. Might as well, use this well then move on to Saint when I get a bit better at this. Besides, the Internal Revenue Service branch in MY house might get wind of it and audit me. I'm on evasion mode at this time.

    I know the XC frames are readily available. Not sure how easy it is to get a hold of the XCT frames. I wouldn't mind one though!

    Rear Brake and Rocker

    Works just fine. I had some slack in the line, so I just used some velcro on the rocker to secure it. This was the best solution to keep it tucked in and out of the way. Doesn't interfere with anything.

    Your front brake line

    You should reroute your front brake line so it's between the fork and the wheel. Less chance of it getting pinched or damaged if you had to lay the bike down.

    Is switching rockers out like that a bad idea? I would assume that it could cause issues using a rocker that's not standard on the bike. Then again, I really have no idea - it's just me thinking out loud. :P

    The rocker arms function the same as the stock ones. In fact, they have been used on older KHS models and are probably made in the same factory. Only difference is they increase bottom bracket height a little, increase leverage on shock, and increase travel options. They do, no doubt, void the warranty on this particular model. The bike rips nevertheless.

    For a small frame, there is a ton of clearance with the G2 offset fork.....so toe overlap is non-existant.

    She loves the way it rides......has no problems climbing or descending.

    I rode the same fork on my Ventana El Padrino & SC Tallboy as well. I liked the way it felt....seemed to quick by very stable.
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.

    Glad WW.com took back the medium. It is a hoot ro ride for sure. Good luck with the re-build and be sure to post pictures.

    Had a small crash today on my Felt hardtail jumping a berm! Told my wife to go ahead of me to take a picture of me getting some air and damn if she was not too close and in the trail and I barely got stopped but fell into her and her bike.

    All is well, but it was close!

    Hahaha nice!

    Yeah - looking back I think I may have over-reacted a little bit to what the situation was because it really wasn't that big of a deal. WW did give me a scare though when I called to ask on the status since I heard nothing for 7 days AFTER they received my medium frame. They said "Ahh yes, Jason, I wanted to talk to you about something..." It seems as if I forgot to send my seat post clamp back with it, so they're just taking it off of the large frame they're sending me and that's that. Ah well, simple fix, my mistake!

    I just got a shadow RD in too, which should accompany the frame nicely. Not to mention, a new hitch mounted bike rack that doesn't hang the bikes. It should work out VERY nicely for this bike and any bike I ever need to haul. Gotta love selling old college books for Amazon.com credit and having NO idea what to get but a bunch of bike stuff. :P

    How do you like the X-Fusion fork? Likewise the 650 tire size? My lbs had the exact bike and I almost pulled the trigger on a 650 as well. I would love to climb with one to see how it compares to a 26"! Great pictures!

    My late FXT COMP, it served me well for nearly 10 years before I broke the frame!

    Sure looks fancier than my XC204!

    The X-Fusion is great...as is the rest of the bike! Only changes I made were replacing the rear derailleur with an XT Shadow and the cassette (SRAM Red).
    Climbing on it was easier (to me) on the 650B than on a 26", only minor thing is on the steeps, I've had to lean forward (if only slightly) more than on a 26". Control on the dh is great.....no feeling of being too high as the center of gravity feels almost exactly the same as my 26's. I also test rode a few 29ers at the lbs but didn't like the "stretched out" feeling and the noticeably higher center of gravity of the 29er (as I'm only 5'8").

    All in all, I have to say this is the most fun bike I've ever owned. Since I've had this bike I haven't even touched any of my other bikes. I got lucky and bought this brand new (for < half it's retail value) from a local lady who won it at a poker tourney.....it still had all the tags on it!

    I'd recommend this bike to anyone!

    Just got a XCT-535 today and am currently assembling it but I had to take a break to upload a picture. I also got some more bikes as you can see from the second picture.

    been a while since posting last, so what better place than a KHS forum

    '06 XC104


    what happened to the above frame



    the result of what happened to the above frame
    '09 XC604



    dunno what it is, but the ride is different somehow, meaning much better. could be the geometry, the horst linkage, a new shimano LX bb or the cane creek headset, and the fact the head tube a frakking massive ,compared to the 104, or all of the above. I just don't know. not gonna complain about it tho . one thing i noticed about the 2 frames. the 104 had 604 as part of the serial#. what was sent has 104 as part of the #, but marked as a 604, whereas the 604 serial was marked as a 104. confused yet?

    Question for the knowledgable folks here with the KHS bikes! What shock size is the XC204 setup for???? Is it the 6.5" shock or bigger???? I can't seem to find a spec. on it anywhere I go to look.

    Thanks.

    Brand new rack and brand new bike build. Very happy with that style bike rack... will never get a traditional "hanging" rack again. Very stable, secure, and incredibly easy to load/unload bikes.

    As far as the bike, the large frame was definitely right for me being 5'11.5". It feels slightly on the bigger side for me, however that's how I prefer bikes to be, especially since I like really short stems. We definitely have a winner there. It did great on the trail as well. I took it easy to get used to it then halfway through really put it through its paces. Helluva fun ride!

    That is what I was thinking. I measured eyelet to eyelet and that is what I came up with but did not know if there was budge room. Thanks for the reaffirmation.

    AFAIK, 6.5" x 1.5" is the correct size for the XC-x04 frames.

    yeah, there ain't a lotta room there. my 604 has about .5-.75in of room between the top of the eyelet and the cables running ubder the top tube

    [I'll take and post a pic of my 02 FXT comp tomorrow, it's the same as EABiker's. I posted a pic in the General forum about a year ago when I got it, fished out of the scrap bin at the dump. Went for a short ride today, still some work to do, but so far I kinda like it. (My first squish bike)

    Lighter rider so I dont get close to full comp. I liked the ride. BB is at 14" with a 130mm fork but doesnt seem to ride too high, for me anyway.

    I think that thing is so cool.

    Recently, I was shown a critical difference between the original style XCT, like yours, and the newer style with less travel. Seems the lower front derailleur cable stop on the originals has had some clearance issues...

    I guess you've probably checked that, but I'm told that when it hits, that is the spot.

    At least its not the front. And one more reason to go 1x10.

    That's the only vunerable spot. But like I said only when almost bottomed out. A little tighter clearence on the front chainstay bridge then with the Nevegal, but otherwise enuf clearences on sides of seat/chainstays. I'm running it 2x9 now which is great aswell. I've only had one ride so far with rr 650. Rolls great with the Pacenti's May put the 26" back on until I mod the shock. Don't want to slice one of these brand new Neo's.
