Does sound to good to be true? But late Kleins are cheaper than the quality pre trek Kleins.

I picked something like this up for £100 a couple of years ago. Prices have gone up since then, but this isn't one of the more desirable models.

The Gator Klein is an Adroit, its been on Gumtree several times, its a scam, buyer is listed in London then tells you the bikes in Shetland and he will ship it you, he/she has stolen the picture from an old Ebay auction, you notice the american garbage cans in the background :wink:

Trek bought Klein at the end of 95, so 96 and onwards is under Trek ownership but they still made Klein's in the original Chehalis factory until 2003.
