    KHS XCT 535 reviews?

    Any information on this bike? I am looking for a new frame and can get one for fairly cheap. Any pros and cons I should consider? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, I didnt see that when I searched. That review makes me think I should look elsewhere for a frame to replace my Teocali. The extreme rising rate leverage ratio that they describe in that review doesnt sound like it would fit my riding style.

    Any other infromation from anyone?

    Thanks again for those reviews. The funny thing is I live 15 minutes from rays mtb and have had season passes 3 times over the last 7 years. So I ride there alot. All the reviews posted above have good information in them.

    I ride agressive XC to light AM. Once a year I go to 7springs and do some DH. Nothing crazy at 7 springs, that a 5-6 inch bike cant handle.(I have done it on a hardtail)

    Any follow up on this? Mullen, you pick up a 535? If so how's it ride? What about you JMac47?

    I'm thinking of treating myself to one of these frames for the holidays along with an appropriate fork. I'm riding a 204 that would transfer to the wife if I built up one of these. Should I keep the 204 and wait for something else?

    I havent picked one up. I still might, I just cant decide if I want to buy a frame or just buy a new bike. I really like my bike I have now, But my frame needs constant attention and its annoying. I rebuilt my frame(again) for 50 bucks rather then buy a new frame this time. But i'm leaning towards picking one up before spring (if still available).
