Just got my new regular ride finished, will be hitting the trails tomorrow, its a big step for me as its not a Klein :lol:

Hopefully it will live upto hype with all i have read about these bikes, lucky to find the frameset on Ebay in my size and my 1st choice of colours the "Team".

Fitted new XTR M970 groupset and took of the wheels/Hope brakes from my old Adept, hopefully it will be in the same condition tomorrow as it is now!

Believe the hype :D

It flies up the hills, and is in insane on the downhills, i was abit over caution on a few occasions, this bike is goin to be so much fun when i get more use to it.

Don't worry Stubbsy, i ride a Klein to work everyday :wink:

Saw this in the carbon the other day, and it is lovely even though it was all boxed up, the finish on it is very very tactile (or was that just me :lol: :oops: )
