I have a 91 dolomite in 18" in excellent condition but with the later type forks.
I thought these forks were only on the 1990 bikes.
When exactly did they swop over?

My klein still has the mission control 1 not the mission control 2 which came in 93 I think.
Your klein still has the first gen forks which has the square corners(bad description) while mine has the rounded corners.
I would post a pic of mine but I am crap on computers.
What is your serial No on the frame?

this looks like a 1990 to me with the box forks and the solid "klein" decal on the downtube, where as in 1991 the decal had a while outline, and of course the unicrown fork.

I think you are correct. I can't get the serial number right now. I went riding this morning by my parent's house and won't be home until tomorrow. I will check it then.

I sold the 20" frameset to audi-allroad. I did pick up a 22" Dolomite frameset from mousemat. Thank you to both. So this build will switch to the 22"
Here is a before picture of the 22" Dolomite.
