Strength:

seems indestructable (i'm 165lbs), pretty solid components overall for the price

Weakness:

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.

Strength:

Strong Frame, good components.

Weakness:

Crappy stock pedals, Bashring, And its kinda heavy.

Great bike for the money, very versatile and strong, it will handle anything you throw at it. The first thing you should get rid of though are the plastic pedals that come with it, These things are like trying to stand on an ice rink, your feet slide off even when you ride off a curb. If your just getting into any kind of freeriding then you should get this bike!

Strength:

STRONG, its CRO-MO, and it fits multiple riders.

Weakness:

It Heavy

This thing rocks, the flat back paint makes it look mean, but it actually is. It handles great, and makes riding it very comfortable. It jumps well, and seems to take a beating with out a problem. It is the least expensive bike I have owned over the past few years (I bought a frame Kit and built the bike myself), but it is the MOST ENJOYABLE about bike I can remember riding. I am very glad I took a chance and purchased this frame.

Strength:

Personally I like the frame better than the DJ 200. Great deal because it comes with Marzocchi dirtjumps.

Weakness:

The fact that it doesn't come with disk brakes is a real bummer. The only big weakness is the pedals, plastic, I ended up snapping them on a dirt jump.

I recommend it to anyone looking to dirt jump. If could I would save up a little more and buy the DJ 200.

Strength:

Everthing is great about the bike except pedals presten tupes and thats about it

Weakness:

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.

Strength:

none......good geometry maybe....

Weakness:

After two weeks of riding I did a dirt jump and landed fine. The frame had snapped somehow on landing :/

More below

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)

Totally sucks DO NOT BUY!!!!

Strength:

everything, except tires,pedals, and grips.

Weakness:

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.

Corey   Weekend Warrior [Sep 25, 2006]
Strength:

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

Weakness:

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")
