    Bent KHS frames right out of the box

    Any of you guys having problems with your KHS four-bar frames being slightly tweeked right out of the box? The first XC204 I got had the rear triangle shifted around to where the wheel didn't center. The replacement has the entire rear dropout bent inwards to where the driveline won't line up right.

    Anyone else, or am I having really bad luck with these?

    Scratch that about the second one being bent. What I thought was a bent dropout causing my derailleur to point inwards is in fact a worn derailleur. So I'm only 1 for 2, not 0 for 2.

    Post some pics of that 204 when you got it all built up. I ride a 304 frame that was Jenson's blowout from last year.

    Glad to hear your 2nd frame is all cool.

    Here's the pic from the initial build. Basically it's the same thing, just with a straighter frame.

    Oh, and the platform pedals are no more. I put some PD-M545s on it.

    Oh I remember this one. You posted right after you originally built it up.

    KHS bikes are nicer than people give them credit for. They're just unpretentious bikes that work well. What more can you ask for eh?

    Yeah, I'm impressed with how well it works on the trail. Even being a cheaper spec with a no-name rear shock.
