Bike Setup: i dont really know wat it comes with brand new because mine was done up by a bloody awesome rider called sam reed but i know it has a good frame that handles alot of presure
Date Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Strengths: seems indestructable (i'm 165lbs), pretty solid components overall for the price
Weaknesses: stock bashring is bollocks, BB is starting to creak, stock pedals are junk (i broke my big toe and sprained a foot before buying some decent metal platforms), this thing weighs a ton and unless you have some weight behind you (maybe 175lbs+) you'll have some trouble getting off the ground doing trials stuff.
worth the money but upgrade the pedals if nothing else.
Bike Setup: drive bashring/chainwheel, animal platforms, wtb speed v seat, halo twin rail tires

Strengths: beefy solid chromo frame with excellent geometry for a smaller rider looking for a solid bike (rear disc tabs!!). nice and twichy in the steering with a 125mm fork. comes with a pig headset, uses bmx crank parts and easily accepts bmx stems with 1.4 mm spacer.
Weaknesses: the seat is cheap, the bottom bracket was loose on mine and creaked like nails on a chalk board, the stock bars and "bash ring" sprocket were bent and were trashed along with the stem and for safety (looked cheap). i didn't get the stock wheels or fork in my kit.
Well it's not a good bike for huge jumps. i am 170lbs at 5'4" and i wouldn't be brave enough to land anything bigger than 5' on it. i have it set up like a 26" bmx cruiser/ss mtn bike. i can put 20 miles on it and feel fine and still play at the city mtn bike park and not feel killed. it's a toy, not a serious bike.
Bike Setup: 36t bmx sprocket, king specialized ss disc hub 18t cog on wtb 500lite rim on rear, forte ss tensioner, joytech wtb 500 lite front, 2004 rockshock psylo sl u-turn fork, shadow conspiracy seat, forte 160mm rear disc, no front brake, prison bars, lock-on s&m bmx grips.

Strengths: Great shocks...
Weaknesses: I broke the BB and when i went to replace it KHS would not respond to any emails about finding a replacement. Its an extremly odd size BB and couldent find it anywhere. So i was forced to upgrade the whole crank setup and the thing is all used it for was ridin in the city, and a couple times downhill crosscountry.
Keep saving your money and buy a better bike, the amount of upgrades needed make it a waste of time. I might see if i can sell it.

Strengths: none......good geometry maybe....
Weaknesses: After two weeks of riding I did a dirt jump and landed fine. The frame had snapped somehow on landing :/
DO NOT BUY THIS! I broke it right below the renforcements on the top tube aand bottom tube. I did not abuse the frame in anyway just DJ's. When I contacted KHS they did not help. They said the frame is not made for dirt jumping and is not replaceable....Which is annoying because it is calle DJ 100!@!!!!!!!!! E-mail me at Wilwhite94@aol.com If you want proof.(photos)

Strengths: Everthing is great about the bike except pedals presten tupes and thats about it
Weaknesses: pedals are plastis-I sugjest get some primos( great peadals but only 30$) Prestan tubes are a pain in the ass just cause you cant fill your tires enless you have the adapter with only costs 2-3 dollars
The Bike is a great bike by one off ebay for 350 including shipping ITS A STEEL cant get much better for the price brand new.
Strengths: everything, except tires,pedals, and grips.
Weaknesses: tires get pinch flats super fast, pedals... they're plastic change them before you have to have face reconstruction. Grips you could probably live with but wear gloves or you'll get huge blisters.
Sick bike, looks clean. handles anything you can dish out. If your hard on your bikes then this bike is for you.

Strengths: Hmmm... lemme see..... EVERYTHING!!! This bike is really light. The forks being MZ COMP 100 mil, frame solid, Rims D-wall strong (8 foot drops to concrete did nuthin), stem is nice (Powertool handlebars n stem), 8 speed shiman Acera (pretty decent)the one thing thats good and bad at the same time is the presta tubes. Pros: strong, better impact resistance, holds air pressure at a constant Cons: pain in the ass for me to find adaptors and high psi means unpatchable and you cant use that inflator in a can junk, and the last little problem was that all my tire gauges only went up to 50 psi and presta tubes can easily inflate to 80 (not recommended if u weigh over 200) cuz that much pressure can spike a tire psi to 140 psi
Weaknesses: none the cranks are ugly but thats my preference
BUY THIS MOTHER F*@KING BIKE YOU LITTLE DUMB ARSES!! STOP RESEARCHING OTHER BIKES AND BUY ONE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED! THEY'RE GOIN ON EBAY FOR 300 UNDER SEARCH TYPE "KHS DJ 100" (note the space after "DJ")
