What is your "omega" ? A cannondale SM or SE omega 8) .
A friend of the french forum had 2 kleins : a pink/orange/yellow Attitude and a bleu/green/yellow Adroit. He put them in the same room together.
He phoned me the last week : he has now a white Klein Pinnacle ! :lol: :lol:
(I think that he will have 4 kleins in the next week… :roll: )

Hollister- I've added a link on your original thread about Omega cycleworks, I'm pretty sure they made that frame around/just after 98 before they switched to Titanium only production

Beau-ti-full !
The Alpha will change : titanium or breezer fork, titanium : seatpost, stem bar… campy (brakes, shifters, mecht…)and mavic (crank, rear mech…), and mavic Paris Gao Dakar wheels…
But for the saddle : Brooks ! Swallow or swift. I don't know but certainly honey color…
I had an antique brown swallow on my other titanium mtb. Antique brown is the color I prefer on a titanium bike…
Pictures but next month!
:wink:

I love brooks saddle…
My first was a swift . I could bought a limited collector swallow (lateral seams, antique brown) , there's 3 years ago, but I didn't have enough money at this time :cry: .
In september, I bought an antique brown swallow. Very confortable ! In Moutain bike, with a titanium seatpost, I didn't need a rear suspension :D
But in february, in a very muddy run, the leather had teared :roll: :( :(
I think, it's my fault : I didn't grease enough the leather !
The frame is still good : I have to change the leather (The french dealer, said me that Brooks doesn't change the leather).
But, when I can, I'll bought another swallow :wink:

I have one of these if you are desperate - very used, ripped off my original triangle post bag - pm me.
