Post subject:  Klein Quantum Pro (2000) Complete, £800 Final Price!

SOLD SOLD

Klein Quantum Pro

Believed to be made in 2000 (aka one of the last Kleins made in Chehalis by Klein)

Ownership History:

Has had two previous owners before me.

1st Owner (Ed Moses) owned it from new in 2000-2009 and it's his name on the top tube.
Have contacted Ed and it appears he mostly used it on a turbo trainer and had apparently ridden it less than 1km.

2nd Owner (Henry) owned it from 2009-2011. Henry (as far as I'm aware) Didn't build it up, but kept it as a frameset as brought from Ed due to sizing issues

3rd Owner is myself, I built the bike up and used it as a 'sunday bike', putting perhaps less than 50-100 miles in it. There are a few marks around the left rear chainstay but is otherwise basically immaculate.

Pricing and Spec.

SOLD!

It comes with...

1.) complete carbon centaur groupset (2009, with NOS UT Carbon chainset put on September 2012)
12-29 cassette, 53-39 Chainset. Chain, cassette are ten-speed record and NOS (Put on september 2012)
Cableset is Campagnolo Record gear and brake cableset (new september 2012)

These have Lugano tyres (New) on at the moment but I will include some continental four seasons tyres as well (Worn, but usable.)

Skewers are richey titanium skewers.

I beleive that is one of the Lombardi Sports Race Bikes. In San Francisco, Ca there is a store called Lombardi's Sports which used to have a pro cycling team sponsered by Klein. All of there bikes were that color (colour). I have the same bike only 60cm that I bought from one of the team members & yes it is a 2000. There is a fantastic advertisment that was created for Lombardi's sports which had the entire team on a San Francisco Cable Car with all of the bikes on top of the cable car. I tried to find that image on-line but didn't find it; the store still has a poster inside with this image.

Thanks Sonneborn, that's interesting..I did make some effort to contact ed moses but didn't get very far, I wonder if you have a list of the team members of the Lombardi team or where I could get one? I contacted the shop to ask if it was actually one of their team bikes/if they had a frame number list.

I emailed the Lombardi shop and it turns out it is a team machine.

I also found this picture, from 2000, with a team rider that seems to confirm that the unique paintjob (apparently only done for the team) is the same.

Right, final week I'm having this up here will be next week. (10th-16th September).

I'd rather sell it to someone who is more likely to look after it (rather than ebay..) so with that in mind.

PRICEDROP
From £970
To £900 (Excluding postage)

It is a former team bike, that's one of the last proper kleins with a very decent groupset and wheels, let alone the other kit, so I think that's as low as I'm likely to go.

Fantastic looking bike; does it ride as well as it looks ? Bet it's pretty light too...

Author:  joewalsh1990 [ Sun Dec 23, 2012 11:52 pm ]
Post subject: 

In terms of ride: It rides as smoother than the vast majority of modern carbon bikes i've ridden (Tarmac, Supersix) and is as smooth as a steel frameset (based on riding genesis equlibrium and a few 90s italian framesets)

In terms of weight, it was around 8.3kg all told, If I remember correctly? Which is fairly decent for a 2000 bike!
