That looks really nice. If I didn't have two already Id be tempted.. :)

I'm not entirely sure that it's a Gary Klein frame though.. I thought the recessed tapers on the inside of the seat stays, just above where they join the dropouts were deeper/more pronounced when built by him and the 'K' logo design should be different?
It looks exactly like one of mine, like a Trek made frame. Need to see the bb, frame # properly, which isn't clear in the ad..

...I think all the 'proper' Klein frames said 'made in Chehalis' on the frame sticker - I am sure a Klein expert will be along shortly to tell me I am talking out of my a*** :-)
