Yeah saw this for sale on the net there late last year, i'd say yeah defo a 99, made in 98 for a 99 release as serials go....logo changed to this version in 99 also, so yes post-trek...still nice bikes though...I picked up a 97 Attitude race with 96 serials but the race wasn't released until 97 so like yours it was made before that year...would also be considered post trek but was still made in the old factory to the same standards, most notable difference on mine is the head tube when compared to the 96 and earlier Attitudes (no bulge like earlier models)....so defo a 97....had it been made in 96 to the same design as the 96 it would be considered pre-trek even though Trek bought it in 95...I still love it, if I had the money to collect them I would, the nicest bikes I've ever had the pleasure of riding or seeing online, works of art, and pieces of history, I hope I never have to buy another bike unless it's a nice Klein.....happy trailing.

I really love the way this Klein rides, I was expecting it to be over-rigid, but it's surprisingly supple. 8)

Lol, I can't believe it was you that snapped this one up as well. The moment I saw her advertised I was full steam ahead until I saw that the deal had already been done..... I must up my game sir ;) Lovely buy there.

Cheers Nick,

Yeah I have been lucky :wink: with a couple of purchases here in the past, and this is definitely one of them. I adore the way it rides, and is definitely my workhorse of the fleet... :)

Interesting that there's a "T" in the serial number. T typically indicates an Attitude serial number from the pre-Trek days. Post-Trek, the Attitudes had, I believe, an L in the serial number because Klein started tubes from the Pulse.


I think and this is a guess that when trek bought Klein they bought left over tube sets and if i guess right i would think that when the bb tube was made in say 95/96 it was then left in stock and when trek bought Klein they just used all there old stock first then stamped it when it was connected to a bike, so the t i would presume means attitude due to the fact that the part is from an old attitude.

only a guess and im sure i put that all wrong

thanks andy
