Any experience with this frame? I have found some insane deals online for the frame only.
KHS sucks, and I'm not joking. The reliability of their DJ/Freeride/DH bikes are a bit questionable.
It's likely a 2005 or 2006 model.
you can find the dj100 frame for $100 on jensonusa.com
but you'd do better saving for a better frame.
Not too sure I agree with you there, Smashy. Nor apparently do the people here: http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/manufacturers/2577/Originally Posted by Mr. Smashy
Any actual facts to back up your statement?
I'll be racing a KHS Team XC, full XTR stuff hung off it this year. Should be in this week. I'm looking very forward to it. I know someone who raced his Team bike all last year and didn't have any complaints.
Yep, stay away from that "suckung: dirt jumper 3 front shox!!!" and you should be okay.
Might check this too - - got an e-mail this afternoon. Frame and fork $225:
Just to point out, that score is from just one review (An idiotic review, at that). Hardly a valid sample of opinions. If you actually look at the link I posted you'll see that, in general, KHS products with multiple reviews (i.e. more than a handful) usually score pretty well.Originally Posted by Big_knob
So, to say that "KHS sucks" (eloquent or what?), just doesn't seem to be fair, or true.
Disclaimer: I have a KHS Flite 800 road frame. Which is sweeeeet!

Up to 2001, I was on KHS bikes. From my own experiences and others, I have seen a bunch of cracked, snapped KHS bikes, not so much on the xc and road side of things, but with the DH/Freeride bikes, the stays tend to break easier than others. It might have changed by now, but I am definately turned off from them.Originally Posted by JackTheLadd
Ok, fair enough. It sounds like they may have had problems on the DH/Freeride side, but that's fairly different from saying a blanket "KHS sucks".Originally Posted by Mr. Smashy
Just my 2c.
