ohh , you worked for an klein dealer ??


I did, from 1990-1992. During the golden years. I managed to pick up a 23" Ultra Violet(purple) Mountain Klein frame. Wish I hadn't sold it for a Specialized black M2. My manager got a Backfire Adroit Ultra Lite, all titanium bolts, XC Pro, etc. He got to under 20 Lbs.

1. get that computer magnet off your spoke! 2. level the saddle!

3. hang that baby on the wall and stare at its beauty!
(after the chain, skewers, and tires are sorted, of course)

That's a lovely lovely bike!! Congratulations. It looks gorgeous.

Beautiful! Thats a great find.

I remember those spokes very well, they were a nightmare to build wheels out of. The ideal was that they offered a little flex to soften the ride, in reality the big tyres do that. I once had to build a wheel with those and an elastomer centred hub, very cool but very scary!
