Very nice but you need to install at least 1 headset spacer.
Otherwise you'll have issues with metal on metal...

Your garden furniture needs some oil.

Nice one again Renzo. Like said before, the seatpost doesnt look right but the rest is just too nice 8)

(where are the 22" MC2, heard before the MC2 rides nicer/better then the MC1)

Klein meets Klein goes Holland? Well, that makes 3 already.

cheers,
Martin

Make it 4 Martin :-)
And I know a couple of other guys with Klein bikes :-)

I have a very nice titanium 400mm/31.6 seatpost. That will make it nice :-)
Also John is right, just one rubber/or the standart plastic between MC2 and the frame. You have those nice rubbers, so why not :-)

That's a sweet looking build.

Like those cranks... What are they?

BTW don't overlook Jonrock's advice on the headset spacer!

Thanks for the nice comments and i will either put a rubber ring or so in between the stem and the headtube but there is a small gap now which is hard to see on the pics :wink:

The cranks are Grafton Joystix and bought them as well as the White hubs as NOS the rest is all well polished.

About the seatpost i'm still considering but normally don't like any silver seatposts that's why i chose the black one. But Dirk Jan, which one do you have then?? It's not in your FS threat :)

Klein goes Holland would be fantastic ! I'll open a new topic in Rides Meets and Events so we can pick a location and date and hopefully it will be offroad so we can see some dirt on the Klein's

very nice!

Is that MC2 original or a repaint?
As far as I know even the 1995 series of the burgundy blue Adroit had black MC2's....

Cool bike! Like that Strata..... (grmbl...)
