Good buy. I have one of these frames in black in the shed. Only replaced it last year with a new P7. Just decided to rebuild the klein and was wondering if you knew what size seatpost they take? i kinda threw all the bits off it when it died last November :cry:

thanx for the info Bud. Don't know if you have the same but the paint on mine has "bubbled" in several places and is looking v tatty. I stripped a section off and the ally underneath seems sound. Is this just water getting under the paint or symptoms of a more serious problem?
