Finally finished this Klein Attitude, manufactured 11/95 (I think this makes it a 96). It was purchased unpainted by a graphic artist and he painted it off-white with a pearl finish, looks phenominal in the sunlight. Never ridden, just hung it on the wall. The decals are not the correct era, I prefer the font from the earlier years which also match the post. Since it's not the original finish I plan on riding this A LOT :D

That is awesome,very chic. The third shot is a cracker, looks super beefy(in a good way of course). Love to see some outdoors shots to really see the paint.

Oh and errrr... you may wanna think about reverting it back to canti's? I always think it looks a bit weird with those canti stoppers and a V-brake setup. (Personally, some Onza H.O. brakes would be totally awesome!)

Thanks for the comments. I hear you regarding the canti's and the routing peice on the frame, had a hard time finding black canti's in awesome shape......you have lit my fire to continue the search.

I'll post some pics of it outside this weekend.

You take your bike onto the loo with you?!?! :shock: :wink:

But yeah, nice Rascal there too dude... was thinking about mounting those Onza brakes on mine as well, but I don't think they'd be right for a 1991 model (didn't H.O.'s arrive around 1994?). So I went with some black XT canti's.

The Onza brakes are on my Specialized Team M2 now, but I was thinking to put them on my, yet to arrive, 1993 S-Works Carbon. Maybe they'll look better on that bike :idea:
