Hi all,

this is my new 1992 Klein Attitude. Pictured "as bought" - which happened two days ago (big thanks to Capri_77).
Yesterday we had a lot of rain so shooting was not available. Definitely needs better pictures.
It is equipped with proper XTR and rides like a dream :-))))

Cheers

Thanks. I must say I am very happy now.
I always felt that old Klein was sort of a dream bike for me.

Well... fantastic bike!
I feel bad that it's not mine anymore... but good thing is that it really is in good hands :D
Next year I'll try to buy Attitude or Adroit in my favorite Gator coloring 8) That's what keeps me sober after this sale...

Take good care of it :!:

One of my favourite colourscheme of the Attitude :D

Here's mine, a little bigger but also with M900 group (and Cook cranks).

Have fun with it,
Cheers,

Very nice one. Mine will probably need respray to look like new. I have already talked to a friend who was painting aeroplanes few years ago (kind of photo-quality paintings for magazines and books an aviation history) using airbrush, so I will try to do it during this winter.
Anyway, I love it.
Shall I say that my wife loves it too?
Because it's pink :D
