Yeah its a dale fatty! The frame came with Rockshox Indys which I didn't like and the proper Klein Pulse forks are really skinny so went for this.....and i agree it works! :-)


So do you remove the shock and it is like a regular 1 1/8" fork?


Yep! I struggled find a crown race to fit as the base of the steerer is a fraction wider in diameter than 1 1/8"


I am thinking about doing the same thing. Where did you find the crown race?

LOVE custom rebuilds!

Not such a huge fan of the blue, but its exceedingly well coordinated!
Gotta be in my top 5 fave Kliens, and nopne of them have traditional paint

Great Job, be a shame to split it up

I'm really a Klein fan, but i think they should have shipped them from the factory with this fork!
