I have two Klein Mantra's

The yellow one is a 98 I believe and until recently was my main bike. The purple one was bought for cheap on the bay as an occasional use bike for my dad. Neither are very standard unfortunately, so I doubt many of you will like them. They can still hold their own on singletrack and XC duties though.

I want to hate those evil misshapen full-suspension things... but actually there's something I definitely quite like about them :D

The paint on the "cheap" one looks nice... what sort of "cheap" are we talking about? What kind of weight are they?

Cheers,

AJ

Must admit I nearly bought one once.

Went on a Klein demo day at Leisure lakes and took one of those out.

Very nice bikes.

Chris.

Both were bought via ebay, the yellow one was £700 a few years ago and the purple one was £250 a few years ago.

The purple one is called 'Berry Blast'. I've always liked that color.
