Here is my newly built Klein Attitude. I picked up the frame on Ebay. It is a post Trek Klein, but I still like it!

I think it is a 2001 frame.

Lovely bike, I had a year 2000 and rode it everywhere. After I made it as lite as poss I sold it, :facepalm: in about 2010.

A mate had one ride on mine and went out and bought a 2001 Attitude just like yours on the way home!

There isn't much love here for the Trek Kleins, I can't think why. Maybe there should be thread for them here?

I have a 99 attitude and it's possibly the best bike I own.

It's in the guise of a commuter atm to keep the Mrs happy.
Will bob some pics up at some point

Exactly. This is my 1999 (2000 model I believe) in Jamaican Gold. The paint is just amazing, it was barely used when I got it but even after a few years of abused it just glows.
