That's an 18'' frame good for 5'5'' you really should be riding a 20'' frame.

I remember seeing one of these for the first time at Eastway in 1991. At the time I was blown away by the colours and the fat tubes. It's good to see these bikes given the respect they are due.

I also saw an RC100 the same day. Sold my crappy Peugeot the next day, and got a fluro pink Cinelli!

i would never ride this bike any ways. too small, nos, and i would rather ride my brodie. i just happened to get this frame as a bonus gift from a couple that owned a bike shop after doing some renovations on their house. they sold klein for a few years in the early nineties.

The purple needs to go, all of it, way too many contrasting colours already on the team USA, and none of them are purple.

Surely all of the purple stuff can be made black/silver. would finish it off a treat and at the price of one soaking wouldn't cost the earth either.
