(Finally got around to taking photos) ... 90 Klein Attitude 18" (XS). Acquired in May 2006 from original owner. I was Very Lucky in getting this one. Condition was amazing. The fuselage is immaculate and the paint, particularly the magenta, has almost no fading. Had wanted this specific model and paint since 90.

Full 89-90 XT group. I thought the canti brake variance was odd, 986 rear and XT front, but the 90 catalog pic is similar. The pedals are NOS XT, but from 91. The headset dustcover has the Klein emboss on it. Interesting radial laced front wheel. The Ritchey seatpost was swapped from a MB-0.

I also have a 93 XS Attitude (HLF, unbuilt) and a 95 XS Attitude (S&S, daily rider) but the 90 is my favorite.

Agreed, I voted already too but that would have certainly have been a contender for my vote.
