Yup thats a Klein, cant think of any other manufacturer who thought those dropouts were a good idea but I suspect someone will now tell me there were others.
Theres a 16" Pulse frame hanging on the wall of Edinburgh's Bike Station but its overpriced which is why its been wall art there for a rather long time.

Any idea what it's worth then?

Full bikes go for £100-£200 so a frame in questionable colour/condition is sub £50.

Although I have certainly seen them go for between £100-200 that really does only tend to be the ones listed badly on eBay and snapped up by the eagle eyed. And frame wise I'd of edged toward £75 if it is straight and tidy. Not a huge increase.
By all accounts they ride reasonably well, and it does buy you an entry to the forthcoming Klein meet in Richmond park.

Unfortunately Halifax don't see the same need as me to build bikes so I think I will eventually sell this to fund my Marin...
