Can't believe I haven't joined Retrobike sooner - am astonished by the phenomenal amount of info here! Great site!!
Hi too to any Klein Mantra owners out there - I'm the proud owner of a '99 Mantra Pro (yes, the 'chamaeleon' paint effect one) that I managed to pick up 'new' from a dealer in the US last year - it had been in the back of his storeroom since the bike first came out. I've kitted it out with 2006 XTR and, most recently, some of Ritchey's WCS Carbon parts - a sweet ride.
Now, the Ritchey handlebar I received as a gift and, with it being a 31.8mm oversized model, will need to change the stem on the bike. As the Mantras are fitted with 1.25" quill stems, is there anyone out there that can recommend a stem I can fit that will work (either that or some other workaround?). Would really appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance!
