With Carsten on this one. Why the hell would you want to ride it just for the sake of it.

It's his equivalent of a museum piece.

Would you sit on a rare, old fragile chair and risk breaking it just because it's a chair - and therefore meant to be sat on...?

Let people do want they want with their possesions.

They aren't harming anyone and I don't see why people feel the need to express in public how opinionated they are - especially when the owner isn't rubbing their thoughts in peoples faces - merely divulging information and sharing a mutual (think that's what we're about here?) appreciation.

I will never own a garage queen , but it is great to have people like you who keep those beauties in NOS conditions .

I am sure you have plenty more bikes to ride and that you enjoy riding those bikes as much as looking at those NOS ones . :D

like most protos it was not meant to be ridden. it is likely not heat treated and thus wouldn't last long if ridden. so what shall i do now, just trash it? shouldn't have aquired it in first place? i need your suggestions, come on surprise me for once...

Carsten


Not for the first time I agree with Mr Carsten. That is a rare beast . Like buying a limited edition super car. The new Lamborghini is 1-20. 1 is in the factory. The rest spread very thinly. With one to the UK. If i was lucky enough to own that car. Could i drive it round London ?? Like f**k i could/would. I would drive it on a track on nice on summer days then in the air con home for it. That very sweet klein in the picture is a rare one. I would go round my garden on it. But other wise kept safe. Plus Mr C has other Klein s to ride :D And i'm sure he does ride one some times.

here's mine. it's very special (to me) and very close to my heart. one of 2 or 3 prototypes of the MC2 Attitude series, built in 1993. it has the ZipGrip seat post clamp and the MC2 is different to the later production models too. it also is a nice blend of MC1 era features like the cable entry and exit holes and chain stays but already has MC2 era features like gradient tubes (the frame is much lighter than an MC1 frame), micro drop outs etc.

the other one i am aware of is in Gary Klein's collection and is the one in the 1994 catalog.
