Having not seen a Klein in this section for ages :roll:, I thought I would put up one of those "coming soon" threads.
Cheers, Ash.

Trying to push on abit with some building to help me decide what I am doing! I am sure many have had the same dilema, do I really have enough time to enjoy all these?, I know I don't.

So, all unwrapped, took some pics then gave it a quick clean and polish prior to starting assembly. I am fitting XT parts for now as I seem to have a enough of that amongst the boxes, can always change at a later date if I wish.

This has been used so its not a show winner but it is free from damage and the paint is still glossy. There are some scratches, some that will be less obvious when built and only a little chain suck. The chain stay had a thick black protector on it and I thought it may of been covering up a mess but I was happy to reveal a very well preserved stay with hardly a mark on it.

So far I have fitted a black vanadium railed Flite, black alloy Syncros post, black Miche titanium seat QR. XT M735 RM and FM and an all black M730 crank with round SG rings.

Looking good...
I am picking up a v similar frame today - 1991 Pinnacle in the same ''black pearl" or whatever it's called. I hope that my build can come together in line with yours. I have a few parts to source still, however, so it may take a while longer!
