Looks sweet. If I were you I'd be clamping the seat post, not the top tube.

This is a plain gloss black, the pearl black is a sparkle/metallic finish I believe. Get some pics up when your ready and good luck with!

Outside of a doli, the all black Attitude is up there on my Klein list.

Nice to see it getting a proper useful build!
