    Looking at all of these cool KMs is making me jealous. About a month ago, I went to order an 18" frame from my LBS, and QBP was out. I have checked lots of websites and they all show out of stock. I called QBP, and they said that they are done with this frame, and that all that will be available from now on is the new MDS or Ops version. If anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know.

    Good thing I got mine already. I cant believe they are getting rid of the KM. Isn't that their most popular bike?

    They are not really getting rid og f the KM, but changing it. They now have a modular dropout, that can be changed between three different types of dropoout, as well they changed the head tube diameter to 44mm, and raised the price.

    How have they performed? Similar to the regular black version? I would think the skinwall rubber might be harder, but they look so good. I'm hoping I'm wrong about that.

    I HAVE BUILT IT AS SINGLE SPEED 44/16 WITH NS BIKES handlebar and stem. The stem is quite short as the head tube is quite high and I feel very comfortable. .
    I ran with SRAM automatix inner hub gear (2 speed automatic) before I have changed to singe speed.

    nice build, ventralis!

    really digging your fork mounted light.

    also, what was your impression of the automatix?

    HI! MONOGOD,

    If you have chosen your ratio right then SRAM Automatix (with transition at 136%) could be great. I used 36/18 after trying 36/16t. With ratio at 36/18t suites me best. For the money I think it is adequate.


    The SRAM Automatix on KM was not functioning very well as the spring for shifting gears was adjusted lousy. So I "redo" the tiny and lousy spring with result that the IGH shifted at a bit higher speed than industrial setting. I like it better than industrial setting.

    As I have another 29er rigid fork, hardtailed chromo running also with SRAM Automatix/Disc Brake. It is functioning perfectly. Therefore, I removed the SRAM AUTO from my KM and run it single speed with ratio 44/18t.

    "really digging your fork mounted light"
    The clip-on of light (lezyne/Commencal OEM) fits perfectly at bottom of fork. I still use the provided rubber band to secure montage.
