    What did you do to your KHS today?

    A little slow around here, so what have you done lately?

    I just built up my 204 and put most of my components from my hardtail on it. The last few weeks I got may hands on a few $ and did some upgrades.

    This week I...
    -Changed out my SOS rims for some Mavic 717's XT hubs
    -Changed my no name bars for some Monkeylite sl's
    -Sette 90mm stem
    -Kalloy cabon post
    -WTB pure slt saddle
    -BB7's
    -Maxxis larsen TT on the rear

    I'm around 30lbs now. The bike was pretty chubby before. I'm good for a while. My fork or rear shock will be my next upgrade... Christmas maybe?

    How about you?

    I left her home and rode the hardtail.
    I do plan on upgrading to SRAM X~7 9-speed like the HT has, so she wasn't completely forgotten. In fact, you could say the KHS will benefit from me taking the HT out.

    Sold one of them, still have 2 though. Only reason I sold one is because i'm looking to do a C/F frame build over the winter or buy an OTS C/F frame bike. Maybe a 2010 or 2011 XC-Team

    Adjusted my rim brakes AGAIN!. I think I 'll work on converting to discs, since we have muddy winters here.

    I stripped it down to the frame so I could sell the Flagstaff and replaced it with a Niner.

    Put a replacement rear shock on it (used Fox Float RC). Setting it up as we speak. Last week, replace the tired Panaracer tires with Kenda Negval (front) and small block 8 (rear).

    Used Salsa Red Titanium skewers front and back:





    Used Hope seat post clamp:



    Used Bontrager lock on grips/ red trim:



    Sette 90mm stem, hoping to change to a Thompson, Race Face, or something similar. Bike was purchased used, and everything that has gone on the bike is used, so it is starting to be trend with me. Cool ride on a budget.

    I installed my new RS Sid World Cup fork and new Avid XO brakes on my XC Team and new Sram Stylo OCT Crankset as well. I'll post pics sometime soon. Does anyone else have a XC Team? I see a lot of posts for trail bikes but not many for the xc race bikes.

    Dusted it off, cleaned/lubed/aired and tweaked. Haven't had much time to ride due to workload (good!) and weather (bad!). Worked 65 hours last week and looking at 75 this coming week, but vacation afterward. Time to ride and fish.

    Took my KHS sixfifty606 and upgraded to:

    Avid Elixir 5
    (have much better feel than the Hayes that were on it)

    Truvativ BooBar 780mm Wide Bar
    (I am a "big o' boy" so the 780mm feels just right)

    Lizard Skin Clamp-on Grips
    (so they don't move under my "Big o' boy" weight)

    185mm Wave Disc
    (Up front to stop my "Big o' boy" weight)
    Fat-n00b

    KHS sixfifty606
    Felt F90

    Current Condition:
