Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

This was the first bike I've built from the frame up. Considering what I had to start with, I'm pretty happy with it.

I still want to change the wheels out for some decent double walls. The biggest challenge was learning the integrated detangler and getting it to work properly. The original forks were trash and these have a really long steer tube. I have 14mm of spacers on the bike not to mention the lower cups are from an aheadset because the new F-set lower wouldn't fit in the headtube.

It actually rides pretty nice.  Kinda ugly, but I like it.

Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

I still remember the advertising of this KHE back then...should be with that porn star you named posing on it.

I never figured out how this headtube with the integrated gyro system really works.
Does it happen you to have any pictures of it during the built?

Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

I wish I had taken pictures, its pretty trick. The concept is like the old rotor, with single cables connecting to metal flanges on the detangler. This detangler has bearings on the cylinder to help it slide along the steering tube. Because of the thickness of the metal there isn't a lot of flex like you might have with a gyro so it has more of a linear feel.

Same mistake i usually do during builds! wink

Thanks for taking time to explain me.
Yeah, i love it's solid feel. I once saw it in a bike shop of a friend and gave it a ride.

Cool to have it!

Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

I have a spare detangler for this bike so I mocked up the internals to give you an idea of whats going on in there.

http://i604.photobucket.com/albums/tt125/jtrapp57/IMG_1585.jpg

You can see how rigid the flanges are, and how the unit slides vertically along the steer tube inside the head tube. The trick during setup is to make sure the detangler is at the bottom of the head tube so there's enough room for vertical travel when applying the brakes.

Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

yikes

That's very kind of you, i appreciate it much!

Yeah, kinda looks like the older detangler systems, but more simple in a way.
Shame they didn't produce enough of them,it stays a rare sight for sure!


Thanks!!!
Duke.

Re: 2002 KHE Dirty Buster

Finally got my new wheels. The front is a Stolen.  The rear is an Odyssey Hazard cassette cog lace to a Midway rim. The front tire is a Shadow Undertaker. Now I just need some better brake pads and I'll be finished.
