Just finished paying off my partners Klein :D It's a Quantum with full original Dura Ace including the stem, post and headset, except the pedals which are Look. Going to try and track down some matching Dura Ace ones though to complete the groupset. ITM bars and Campag rims round out the package. Ended up putting a Specialized Toupe seat on it, mainly cause my partner doesn't like Turbo's or Flites or any old saddles, and well she normally gets her way :oops: But I think it suits the bike well. The paint is absolutely mint, no fading of the paint at all, hard to show in photos though.
This is my dream road bike, but this one is far to small and rare, so I will live vicariously through her :lol: Sorry about all the pics, I just love it!

Would you like to photograph it against a background that isn't green? It might be a nice bike, but I can't see because my eyes are watering so badly

The picture of it against the bush is particularly distressing.







really, it's a very beautiful bicycle.

Thanks :D

What's the best way to photograph fade paint jobs?
Perhaps stealing the good white sheets and hanging them for a background?

At sunset or in the snow.

Hey, I was teasing a bit, but if you really want to show it off, take it somewhere with a neutral background colour, a smooth grey wall, any dark background (except green) etc, in the sunlight. Would lok fantastic in a snowdusted mountainous region.

It's really beautiful. I don't know whether I like yours better or the azure one that's around at the moment... such beautiful paint finishes!
