I am trying to decide between a King Kahuna or a Jubei 1. Both 2010
I currently own a 09 Big Unit and love it, but want another option with gears. My biggest reservation with the King Kahuna is the SLX brakes. I have tried shimanos in the past. Many many sets and generally have hated them all. Only the XT's that came on my 08 coil-air deluxe where any good.

So please chime in and help me out.

But dont suggest any other bikes. Just between these two

I just bought a 09 Jubei and its alright so far, but the cranks are making a ticking noise and when the front derailer is on the small cog it rubs on the tire when you are torquing out. beware of these things. I am gonna get these things addressed or get bike changed out.

The ticking is probably the front derailer cable hitting the crank arm when it rotates, easy fix. And the front derailur rubbing on the tire is a matter of adjusting its angle and or low limit screw, things the shop should have set up before you took them home

Well I finally decided to just add an XX groupo to my Big Unit, only added .2 of a pound, and now I have 10 speeds.
