    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!

    09 XC-204, i'd post pictures of the bike in commuting mode but I don't feel like being flammed. Getting a 09 XCT-535 before the end of the month so I don't have to deal with switching my commuter stuff on and off.

    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.
