Yesterday night I found and ad selling a Klein Attitude Moonrise in 20. :shock:
It was late in the night but I call the mate. The bike was 350 Km far away from home.
I spend 7 hours driving today to get this incredible bike. Now is at home.

It has some sign of use but is in good conditions. Some oxidation in the break hole. The components are very good as well. The only component that does not match is the XT rear hub.

I have to think how to suit it, but I will keep a lot of the components of the original.

I will remove the saddle (I prefer to said it before wait for your comments :lol: )

Seat tube in perfect conditions.
The mate said that the rims are mavic painted (purple and orange). They look pretty good. I think I will keep it.
I wil start to look for a rear super 8 ringle hub in 3DV and new rings. Currently both are Shimano XT 737.
I removed the saddle and the Kenda tyres.
It is a petty that a couple of spokes of the rear wheel are broken because i would like to ride it today.
