    Those specs you put up are for the DH100, here are the specs for the Lucky, I agree though that it is a good deal. You may want to also consider the Jamis Bam 1, It is comparible all the way through the specs except maybe a slight edge on the rear shock, DHX 4.0 as opposed to the Vanilla R on the Lucky.

    Big difference between the khs and the jamis is the khs has Horst-link rear suspension, much better than the Jamis.

    I have had a lucky 7 since December. It weighs 40 pounds for a size large. It pedals well for a 40 pounds bike. The full length seat tube means you can actually pedal it up a hill! The wheelbase is also long at 47.25" but that provides great high speed stability. The frame is far more capable than the rear shock. The shim stack in the Vanilla R is set up in a very strange manner. (If you want more info message me). A DHX, Roco, Vivid, etc makes the bike feel 1000% better! I have a DHX5 on mine now.

    This frame is the same as the Azonic B-52 that I have. The b-52 has a roco world cup but the frame is identical. This bike kicks a$$; descends and climbs like a true freeride/all mountain should. I'm sick of companies selling all mountain bikes that can't handle a rough XC trail, WTF. Bottom line this bike rules.

    I need to find a KHS dealer, I am toying with the idea of buying my own bike for the resorts instead of risking that they will have a rental for me (6'2 215lbs)

    Seems like a great bike for the price
