Its quite refreshing to see Klein with different color of fork and stem.
Leave it as it is (for now at least 8) )

hi
i 've a klein attittude and i would like to change the bottom bracket
thanks for your answer

mike


DIY way is screw a crank bolt into the spindle and knock through with a hammer, hopefully the bearing & spindle drop out, i did it earlier on this frame.

To install, a little bit more harder.......


Yep, managed to DIY my own Klein BB this way - also managed to install with a wooden mallet and was surprised how accurately I was able to align it. Hopefully won't need doing again for a few years though - it did make me a bit nervous...

Also really nice to see another black Klein - mine was black for many years until the paint got so tatty it had to come off.

The Coral Reef is amazing, particularly on a bright day it is stunning.

Been collecting parts for a while now for this puppy, got full NOS Campy Centaur in graphite finish, including wheels with Atek rims, booted with NOS Ground Controls. NOS Grab On MTN-2 grips, NOS original Flite and a NOS 27.2mm x 425 Syncros Hardcore post (not pictured).

Just waiting for the front mech and then all I need is the fuselage.
