Hi All,

First post on here but it wont be my last. Super cool site with pics that bring back loads of memories!!

Anyhow, bought a retro 1991 Klein Attitude 6 months ago on the spare of a moment thing (£200.00 bargain!). Its never been messed with at all with all standard retro gear, xtr hubs, white Ind cranks, yeti grips, flite, even original green paint job(all green not the fade) ETC ETC ETC just replaced rear cassette and chain, still in goo condition overall. Not been MTB'ing for years, used to do loads "in the day" but move over to the darkside (roadie!!)

Back into MTB'ing now, (as well as the road bike) with my fully ridgid Klein and love "beasting" all the full bounce boys who think they are so cool and quick!!

Now should I get it resprayed, spend a full quid on some more trick bits and mint it up or leave it as it is and keep thrashing it?? :cry: :D

I will up load some pics soon, I dident realise how much of a bargain it was until I bought it on a gut reaction. I did some research on retro stuff and then saw how much they were going for on Ebay etc :shock:

It also had yellow Magura racelights on it as well LOL. Took them off though because the frame was flexing alot :roll:

Just bought some XT cantis from Chain reaction to fit on it, using Avid "V" brakes at moment but had to mount the rear outer cable to the top tube because of the internal routeing and looks pants! :roll:

KingKongsFinger - your avatar is the best yet. I just watched most of the Empire Strikes back in less than a minute. Brilliant.
