The Quantum Pro begins a full restoration: my daily trainer, had rust on the bottom bracket and water bottle mounts....as well as two dents I created in the work stand...
Airglow down in Georgia, USA is well versed in the Klein linear fade paint schemes....but I am going a different direction....so purists be ware ! 8)
Also, for everyone: Phil Wood makes outboard bearings for the Klein bottom brackets!!
