Hi All

Just looking for some info on a Klein Quantum serial number.
Apparently, according to the seller, its 2Q4E8

That seems quite short. I think its a pre trek frame.
Any help, much appreciated.
Thanks
T

Sounds like an early 90s. Pictures?

I can see from the frame itself if its a pre TREK or not. Don`t need no Serial.

It’s the same one, we just haven’t pinpointed a year. Best we’ve got so far is early 90’s. I think 90 to 93?

No, Since its a hollow KLEIN lettering, it must be 89 or 90. 91 catalogues already had the filled KLEIN logo.

...just checked again. to me, this is 99% a 1991 Model!

* 1989 Models: KLEIN logo very close to bottle cage screw threads.
* 1990 Models: KLEIN logo shifted to the front, towards the thumb-shifters!

Your frame, matches the 1991 KLEIN cataloge just perfectly!

Thanks very much. I’ll go with 91 then. That’s great. Now I can decide what bits to go on it. Well nearly.
