So after a while running with the Klein as it was I 'somehow' have ended up with another two bikes (a Kona MuniMula and a Cannondale Jekyll!!).
I had been thinking for a while that I would love to turn the Klein into a single speed and with the other two bikes being geared it seemed a logical move. A stripped back version of the Klein just for using on light trails and roads.
So the spec has changed to:
Mavic Crossride wheels and Qr's
Relic single speed freehub kit
Mr Control Chain Tensioner
Continental Cross Country 1.5" tyres
Stx Rc Chainset modified to run a single ring
Woodman Carbon Bar ends
Even with the heavy forks/seatpost/bottom bracket and cranks its very light.
It rides so much better for it too!
