A great collection. 8)

Please tell me you actually ride them and don't just sit there polishing them for photos though ;)

Thanks for all the coments guys :D camera is indeed retro but not quite pre 97 :lol:

All are original paint apart from the Attitude Storm which is a Mr. Rock special, and a great job he has done.

4 get ridden, the Attitude Backfire & Adroit Nightstorm are bedroom queens, both have full NOS groupsets and wheels so hence i don't ride them.

Still got room for a couple more i think, a Moonrise would be nice 8)

The Backfire paint scheme is very under rated, with the bright paint and the more rarer graphite finish Campy group, it makes it stand out from the rest as its not another Klein/M900 build like 4 of the others :oops:

If think the MTB Campy groupsets suit the Klein's oversized tubes but its so hard to get mint/NOS parts compared to the XT/XTR.
