Owners of the the King, HI!

I picked up a 2004 king fisher 2 with a Boxxer fork for a real good deal last year and I finally got to ride it for first time on a DH park. AWESOME! Cept for the chain coming loose a lot. I probably need a chaing guide.

What is really bugging me is what is that threaded whole on non-drive side of the frame on the seat tube? Why is it there?

Everything is pretty much stock expect for the fork. Any suggestions to make it better? What's your set up like? Pics?

Nice clean ride. Exact same color as mine but mine is pretty beat up. I'm looking to paint mine a retro color and throw all sorts of retro colors throughout the bike.

What kind of upgrades have you put on?
I'm looking to make changes to my stock one too. Definately a chain guide...

http://www.therapycomponents.com/floater.htm, check that site regarding the floating brake adapter for the Kingfisher. I have added a chain guide, folding tires and XC tubes( I even use folding tires and XC tubes on my urban jump bike), lower rise bar, setback seatpost, different saddle(every Bontrager saddle I have owned I have bent, plus they are very uncomfortable), you know, I am not sure what else. I have replaced many worn out parts, and wheels on this bike. Plus, you gotta set the bike up for you and your liking. To each his own. I am 6' and this is a 17", would not want it any bigger. I keep the bar as low as possible and it is rolled forwards, plus, I use a offset seatpost. I prefer large platform pedals and skinny, fast tires. Strongly dislike bontrager tires, and not a fan of overly fat tires. Again, to each his own. Good luck, its a fun, reliable bike:thumbsup:
Here are some more pics, some of the photog's timing was off, but hey, were out to ride, not have a photo class, plus, I'm a poser

is the new ride for 09. it rides amazing, I have not had a chance to take it and go all out on it yet, but I have made a lot of runs on our local freeride trail and it has been great it is really fast and nimble, and it is super plush. next thing to change is the fork, I want a 888 or a Boxxer. the Manipoo is ok, and I can live with it but it needs to be a little more stiff I think. anyway let me know what you think. good or bad.

Build spec is....

Cool to see some of these, I have a 2005 kingfisher 1 frameset in the mail. I'll try to post some pics when i get it together. All of yours look the business and i'm glad to hear your liking them.

Are there any Kingfiher related threads other than this one?
Thanks!
