    They send a DJ bike out with reflectors? Reflectors are the devil...I've broken a deraillur hanger on my XC bike thanks to them (it got caught in the chain somehow and just snapped it)

    I rode a complete DJ100 Frame, with most of the components from the stock bike with the exception of Brakes, Wheels, and Fork. For what it is the bikes fine. I broke the seat, and killed the POS bash on the chain ring, but if you remove the bash, and add a regular chain guide, or!!!! go single speed it won't be an issue.

    The only problems with the frame are its weight, and the lenght of the rear triangle. But if you can get over those two things, you'll love it. Its similar to an Azonic Steelhead, in size and weight.

    I stopped riding mine after buying a DK Xenia frame, I wanted something lighter with a shorter rear triangle, but now the DK is gone, and the KHS is still here. The plan I think is to try using it for 4X, and the occasional DH adventure.

    Its Cheap Strong and has a good warranty, I would buy it again.

    But I also love Red Dwarf and Black Adder!!!

    I personally own this bike and Its a great beginner bike, Much better than the Chucker, the only problems I had with it was the stock fork and the wheels, and the tires and how long the rear triangle was. Heres a pic of mine, I now have an STP:

    Yeah, well you're always telling people to buy Ibex and the p.2, does that mean we should do it? No.

    In my eyes, both brands are low end. They make some decent higher end stuff, I think the upper end GT is better than KHS. You probably called a GT dealer. Dealers will spew all kinds of sh!t at you. Specialized... well... They're just full of it. I cannot stand the rep, and it was hard enough to understand my boss without him having Specialized's dick in his mouth. I had a lot more respect for the company till I started working for one of their dealers. Specialized can't weld a rear end right for their lives. That's why many of the frames use conical bushings; it helps compensate for the misallignment. Specialized tries to cut costs at every corner: using steel steerers instead of aluminum, having thinner rotors stamped to cut costs, using cr@ppy tubes, substandard wheel builds from the factory, etc, etc. They are pretty decent about frame warranty, I'll give them that.

    In the end, it comes down to riding the bike and deciding for yourself whether you like it or not (and not listening to todd_freeride). Haha.

    Good thing I check my e-mail guy. KHS was an alright bike but i sold it after a summer of owning. Very uncomfortable for me in the air. But that was a looooooong time ago. If i were to buy a mountain bike again, it would probably be a P series after riding my buddies. Very nimble and flick able. But I've left pedal bikes and moved on to bigger more expensive toys. Which isn't necessarily a good thing.
