This really gets my Goat.

was watching this broken Klein last week, sold for £81 as it is broken.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Klein-Attitud ... 6279101%26

it is now for sale on Gumtree, where you get little chance of getting your money back for £550 with no mention of the fact that it is broken.

cheating Scum makes me angry :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

already on it :wink:

"hi does this bike have double shockers front and rear, and why is this bike so cheap as i know that kliens go for thousands on ebay?"

the misspelling of Klein is intentional before any one starts

that is misrepresentation and knowingly not mentioning the fault/damage

fair enough if it a genuine sale and you find damage afterwards but hte guy has bought it knowing there is a crack i the frame and now failing to mention it. is that not fraud?

they are shite, heavy, horrible to work on bikes anyway, without the damage. Don't know about the early ones, I just don't like the look of them, but I have ridden, stripped and rebuilt one of these

Sorry, just my personal opinion

Kleins are pretty ugly, agreed, Dark Storm is the only thing I like about Kleins, thats it.. [and the Palomino is pretty ugly, ML7 looks WAY nicer and rides better because Mag(got)nesium MonoLink]

Agreed. The only good klein is a cracked klein
But wouldn't wish this bike even on a klein owner.
The trek ones are quite cool though.

this is a Trek one, and trust me I hated working on it. The tubes were too fat on the stays, and got in the way when I was fitting disc brakes on my mates.
