I recognise it, just not sure what it's called. Also, does anyone know what year this Attitude dates to?

Hi Simon,

I think it's 'Gator Line Fade' but i'm no expert, not sure on the year either!

Cheers
Stu

Think it's actually Gator Linear Fade. My favorite Klein paint scheme.

Brilliant - thanks for that. Now, the $64k question - do I need another XC-oriented hardtail?

That is a Trek made Klein. Probably 97 or 98. I would try and find one made before '96 if you are stuck on whether or not to buy it...that would be more worth while. Those were handmade in America then. American Ebay has sick ones go thru all the time for reasonable $. Just a thought :o The Gator fade does look killer...Check out the Rascal on ebay right now. WOW!!

that's not Gator. Blue Koi they called it and it is a 1998 Attitude Pro. Nice frames, imho the best Klein riders. Almost identical to the pre-Trek Pulse but accept Vbrakes and threaded bbs. The paint is similar to Gator but the colors are somewhat more pale, not as bright.
