I would not choose red, but hey, it's your bike! Those tires does not look good on any bike. Otherwise, a lovely ride! Thumbs up :)

Holy crap, nice fork!
Strata in a Attitude?
hmmmm....
I know of another set up like that, an MC2 S&S 19" Attitude with a Strata (I think you are familiar with that bike Martin?).

Still curious about the built!

Well this has stirred a few people's emotions.

I agree the tyres need to go.
However for now they'll stay a bit as have other priorities first.
The steerer is yet to be cut, and I have a new seatpost for it still.
Just had the forks fitted so gone straight out.

The steerer has been cut 1/2 inch, the post has been changed and red cable ends added.

Need to tweak the seat and lower the post slightly.
But apart from changing the tyres, I think it's done.
I tried the tyres to be different.
However in this case I'll agree different didn't work.
Although I'm happy with going in a different direction with the rest of the red.

Nice Storm!

Klein sold Attitudes with Strata forks. I have one Attitude with Strata forks :-)
Ride like hell and the weight is 6.9 kilo (3x8 spd, build with 100% retro parts) :-)

An MC2 Attitude with Strata is technically identical middle-late 96 MC2 Adroit with Strata (no 2inch downtube). So you might as well now call it an Adroit! :wink:

Still not sure about the red but at least you build is different to all other Storm-builds.

A few tweeks earlier, then off for a little ride.
Definitely prefer the Klein tyres, live and learn.

for an early mc2 shouldnt it be a syncros post? I think klein stopped installing their own posts in 1993.


I have got a 1996 burgundy klein, original from selling date and it has a klein seatpost! is it strange, uncommon?
