I think: 1000% no! Flats or (even worse) risers on a road bike is bad, definitely not on a Klein.

Here you go chaps...

SOOOO very close to riding this now.. I acquired a full Shimano 600 Group set, however the Shifters don't work, so I am scouring eBay to find some now...

Cheers

If the shifters are not releasing the cable (the most common fault), try soaking them in a bath of WD-40 or similar overnight. works 90% of the time!
