I dont want to start a war or anything as I know these threads can get a bit touchy......Does anybody have any mountain klein pics or links to threads that they could wave in my direction? I am starting a build and am looking for a few spec and paint ideas.
I was also wondering if anybody has experience of running a roller cam or ubrake on a 4 piece fork (ie bontrager, syncros). I have a roller cam up front but the fork is non original so thought I might have something a little different made up, I'm not sure if the twisting forces from the higher brake bosses may cause problems.
Thanks

I am predicting a huge jump in value for the early Kleins in the next couple of years.

Is this one?

It's been on ebay for ages and started in the $1600's but despite being lowered to $666 (any meaning :lol: ) it's still not sold

It came from ebay us, it came from a member here whos name I have forgotten, it was on here a while ago dressed up as a kleiningham with no paint. Ive been looking at it for a month or two pondering what to do with it.
As it happens I was thinking of doing it in the dayglo green as shown above.
The only tricky bit at present is the fork which came of a Ross and has a quirky 21.1 internal measurement which leaves me a bit short on stem choices, I do have a stem but it is not quite 100% fit wise. Its the tricky fork that has got me thinking about a replacement built around a crown with drop in legs.

Yes Mr gil, I will more than likely tap you up for the proper decals when im a bit further down the line, that would set it off nicely thanks.

Bontrager forks are fine with rollercams, if your worried use a booster
