Up for sale, my Klein Rascal. Bought this in 2012, but Ive not ridden it as it is too perfect to be ridden! Size: Klein size Medium - Suits 5ft 10inch perfectly

Equipment:

Brake Levers: Suntour XC Pro (NOS)
Gear levers: Suntour XC Pro (original fit)
Cantis: Suntour XC Pro (NOS)
Wheels: M900 laced to Mavic rims, F. NOS, R. Ridden a few times.
Front mech: XT M735
Rear Mech: M900 (I now have a really great XT LC M735 if you prefer)
Chain HG (NOS)
Rear Cassette HG 8 Speed NOS
Cables all Shimano and new including all liners
Tyres: Panaracer Smoke and Dart
Seat Post: Syncros 27.2
Saddle: Flite Titanium
Skewers: M900
Chainset: M900 hand polished (8 hours work)
Pedals: period but not sure what
Stem/ Bar: Klein
Grips: Modern

A few marks here and there as shown in the pictures but generally great condition. Worst of the chain suck is clearly shown at the front of the BB. When you remove the crank there are minimal marks. To be honest the marks the bike has could be done on the first ride of an average bike.

There are a few little touches to improve her including a handsome reducer on the brake levers as the Suntours took much thicker 2mm cables and 8mm outers.

Now the price: Well I paid £850, but I'm asking for £750. I am in South Bucks, delivery would be negotiable.

I really want her to go to an appreciative home so I am starting my search for a new owner here.

See the original link from my purchase in 2012

Cheers
