A white stem would be good. As Klein tended to have matching stem/bars. white tires would be to much.

Looks a beauty Steve , I would recommend a nice Ritchey white stem fella and maybe stick with a silver seatpost to match up with the fork crown bud. Looking forward to seeing this develop 8)

'twas repainted prior to me getting my grubby mitts on it, Ferrit may be able to shed some more light on to that....but it is a very good job indeed 8)

It's actually a very subtle pearlescent white, which you can just about see in the top pic. It's so subtle that it doesn't clash with the solid white bars and headset 8) 8)

I am in the middle of a klein attitude build at the moment 8)
I think mines a 2001 and it has been refinished in a linear blue.
But I wish it was white now :shock: looks awesome :D

Thanks Marin Man,

My other Attitude is a '98 in linear blue, and I can't decide which of the two I prefer, I like them both equally..... :wink:

I think the Forks are Marzocchi Marathon SL's from circa '04 but don't quote me on that as I'm not fully up to speed with 'zocchi's yet :oops: :oops:
