    I used the Wheels Manufacturing singlespeed conversion kit and the Bachelor Gusset chain tensioner. I was going to use my Blackspire Stinger but it didn't provide enough tension and the roller wasn't aligned with my chainline.

    Bump!

    Anyone else out there proud of their beefcake hardtail?


    Haven't been around any forums in a long time, but it saddens me to see this one die. My 2005 is still kicking...though a little different. I pulled the PIKE off it to put on the Heckler build. Decided to go with a Sektor and man I'm stoked on it. The PIKE was a little older, so the new-gen sektor was amazing in comparison. Smoother, stiffer, taller, and lighter by far.

    So the "good" parts cannabalized from the Komodo went to the Heckler so now my 2005 is balling a rigid fork and linear pulls, LOL!!



    I'm going to concentrate this winter on bringing her back up to spec's b/c I'm really missing how the Komodo handles when set up properly. Going to keep my eyes open for a 150mm fork and some disc brakes...everything else is still pretty decent.


    Keep 'em coming peeps!!

    Update!

    I was able to find a rigid gnarly fork with the proper A2C for the Komodo. The 2005 was designed around a 120-150mm fork. If you split the difference and subtract 30% sag it comes up to roughly 470mm axle to crown. I had planned on finding a suspension fork for it, but my last ride on the rigid was so fun and energized that I started looking for a tall rigid fork that was tough enough to hang with the frame.

    Originally, I had a Kona P2 on it, but it soon proved to be too weak for the job.



    I was going to try to find a suitable suspension fork, but this bike setup rigid is fun so I found an Identiti Rebate XL 465 axle to crown to bring it back up to the proper ride height.

    Lovin crap! This thing is fun!










    Now I gotta find a QR disc front wheel so I can have a front brake.

    Re: lets see some komodo's

    So I found a local guy with an XT disc Mavic wheel that he let me have for $20. Straight and true. Even tension. Awesome. My local bike shop hooked me up with a donated 160mm rotor for free.

    I got the Juicy's for $40 from another local.

    So I got the fork, headset,.brakes, front wheel, and rotor for $160 total.



    STOKE!

    Quick Release: Salsa Flip lock
    Saddle: WTB Rocket V Team ti
    Handlebars: Answer Pro Taper AM 720
    Grips: ODI Yeti with Peaty lock rings

    This is your frame now - it sat around in the garage awaiting a build for a couple months before I finally got around to building it last July.

    lets see some komodo's-p4pb9987165.jpg

    Things have been changed since this picture was taken - KS i950 dropper post (remote), new tires, etc
    Parts list:
    Jamis Komodo 2008
    Cane Creek angleset .5
    X-fusion Velvet RL 140mm
    rear: White industries eccentric disc hub x sun ringle estate (33mm) with 20t WI freewheel
    front: Hope Pro 2 evo x mavic ex823
    old LX 5 bolt cranks
    Hope front brake, shimano SLX (fins) rear brake
    thomson 50mm stem, easton monkey lite DH 711mm carbon bars
    oury lock ons

    ~24-26lbs depending on the tires (currently some big DH mud tires)



    This bike can huck! Took me a minute to get used to riding a hardtail again after putting it together. My Heckler has been down for the past two months due to much needed repairs and so I've been riding this a lot. The frame geometry, especially with the 140mm fork and angleset installed, is quite fantastic. I love plowing and jumping the same slope style gaps on this bike now that I'm comfortable. There are a few things I don't like about my set-up, but that's mostly it being a SS (I've been riding it in DH territory in Oregon where things are really, really steep and I am really out of shape), but maybe a steel version of this might work out a little better too. Still, hard to argue when I got the frame for a cheap price and I happened to have most of the parts already from a previous build!

    Re: lets see some komodo's

    I got home from my ride on the rigid today and told my wife..."Wow, after a couple rides on the Heckler...that rigid is a rough ride." (obvious)

    So she said (mind you, my wife isn't even a biker)..."So what is that bike good for now anyways?"

    I 'bout pissed myself. She's totally right in the obvious sense, but I still love riding it and that's all that matters. Hard to explain to most of my friends, but rigid 26" is fun in a different way I guess. Though it's a smooth trail and rock ledge drop slayer...this one just happens to be extra unforgiving on baby-head chop.

    Re: lets see some komodo's

    My red ProTaper moved over to my heckler. I tried a syncros bulk 710x40mm, but I didn't like the width and sweep compared to the ProTaper.

    Got a killer deal on a new ProTaper...so I'm back in business.

    I've experimented with many bars. The EA70 was my bar of choice until the wide ProTaper.

    I saw this in the AMHT thread....I digg it, man. Great bike. Good long-term investment. My newest Komodo is 8 years old and no signs of weakness. The longer I own it, the harder I ride it. I now have a tall 465 axle-to-crown rigid steel DJ fork on it. (see above) Zero compliance with this fork. Its much harder on the frame than a suspension fork...but it doesn't slow me down or make me shy away from having fun on my bike. I'm that confident in it. I'm quite certain this 8 year old frame will outlast my body, hahaha.

    Hey Komodo lovers. I am about to undertake a project. My 2003 komodo is ready for some sprucing up. I'm going to strip it and get it powdercoated. Has anyone done this or a repaint? Any tips in dealing with the integrated headset cups or BB area?

    I'll post some progress pics when I get underway... add a little life to this thread
