I'm pretty sure it will go higher in the last few seconds.

I do spot v-brakes on the rear so the top tube exit hole "could" be mangled.

Likely this one won't stay cheap. There are 5 different bidders. As will all ebay auctions, the last 30 seconds is where the action is. :D

How does this differ to the frame and forks your flogging on the for sale thread for a grand...?

there seems to be less corrosion around the cable tube holes on this one...?

Genuine enquiry ref year etc...?

The one on Ebay is a 94/95 MC2 frame, MC1/2 frames were never designed to run v-brakes, to make them work you have to enlarge the exit hole on the top tube.

I'm asking a grand for mine, this is in an auction and the frames are quite different in many ways so abit unfair to compare them both.

I was asking for the details of the comparisons to be fair.

For the less educated when it comes to kleins.

Surely if the frame for sale is the year you say it would have the holes drilled to take the correct cables...NO?
