Just scraping in
This is my new 97 Klein Attitude Comp, ok so not one of the "sell your grandmother" years for Klein, but my first one, and I love it, it's a 1 owner from new, with a set of manitou SX TI shocks (may colour code them as i'm not a fan of the yellow)
She looks a bit daggy (translation from Kiwi "a bit funny looking") with slicks and rear fender but I have an idea to strip, soda blast and restore the frame in Painted desert with gold decals etc, allready had a pair of Conti Mountain Kings arrive today for it.
I won it on a local auction site but when my mate picked it up for me yesturday he told him it was going to live with a few other cool retro bikes, and that I was QUOTE "A rero MTB freak" must have made him happy because he took $110 off the price I had won it for on the auction, so not too bad for $200 NZ I recon
just a question re MC2 stems, I see the Adroit the same year came with an MC2, is there any drama fitting the MC2 stem/collet to this frame? (i'm presuming the frames are the same?) would i have to change to a sealed bearing headset? and would the MC2 bearing slip straight in?
