Looks great. I like the Spinergys with Kleins, they just look right together.

Maybe it's just me and my cynical old mind but you've publicised your Klein in the last few days in a variety of overt and covert ways and then quelle suprise, you're now pointing us to your ebay ad. :roll:

Congratulations though; as this would normally have been stomped on by now...maybe you can get it in the "Weight Weenies" forum as well to ensure complete coverage.

there's no carbon on that frame and certainly not on the fork either. and the rear drop outs are not horizontal and not drilled. that's copied from the description of the old MC1 adroits. rear brake cable housing is too short now ;)

Basically I'd been riding it for a year and fancied a change of bike, so I did some googling and arrived at retrobike, which I thought would be a good forum for finding out what the frame might fetch before I did a swapout. Hence why I joined, put the bike up in various forum threads etc.

Your cynicism proved to be correct, but what's so bad about doing that?

Thanks for your honesty. I'ts a simple matter of cross-posting. By all means ask what your Bike is worth.
By all means put it in the for sale section with a price / ebay watch, but please recognise where it begins to look like spam.

Anyway, i'm sure it'll shift...but we know it's for sale now ;)
