I find it really strange how I see old Klein frames in my memory, back in the 90's they were these massive oversized tube'd frames in my memory. Now I look at a pic and it's like.. That's not right, they look normal size. In my memory they're twice as fat.

Bit like wheels for cars. I was about when sticking a set of aftermarket 15" wheels on with 195/50/15's made your car look pure fandango. Now they'd look silly and even vans run 16's out the factory.

I guess it's just comparing them to everything else at the time, most stuff was skinny tubing and they looked huge.
