What is your secret for finding such NOS frame ?


If he would tell you, it would not be a secret anymore... :wink:

But having good connections helps quite a bit.

Had the noodle been cut?


Nope, it's an original one. Most Kleins that came with a suspension fork had noodleless MC1/MC2.

I´m a bit lost now...
Should I put Campagnolo Olimpus black cranks, mechs and thumbshifters?
Or M900 with those Toplines.
Brakeslevers are Gravity Research and Avid Tri Align cantis, both blue ano. Front brake is gonna be something else for a while...
I have also Campagnolo or M900 wheels.
Also blue Ringles are possible ;)

If Maaria likes thumbshifters, then at least Campagnolo derailleurs & shifters would be nice. Are they 8 speed compatible ?
It would be a somewhat different to the usual XTR M900 builds.
Don't know about black cranks though. Might be worth trying.

I'd say keep the blue Ringlé wheels on the Sea&Sky...unless you have a second pair of those hubs...

Looks really nice, if you gotta have a Klein then Gator Fade has to be the nicest colour and it looks so much better with Strata forks :)
