What's the secret for getting that "slammed" look with the MC1 stem? By "slammed", I mean getting the MC1 further into the head tube so that almost none of the painted quill part is showing. If you compare 24Pouce's stem to mine, you can see what I mean. Is it possible for me to push it further into the steerer to achieve a similar look?


Hi Jeff,
Indeed further down the headset looks cooler.
(bytheway, stunning bike)
I have no clue how to achive this but did you ask Carsten?
He is not an active member here anymore but he knows an awfull lot about Klein.
Cheers,
Marcel

My stem goes all the way down on Team Usa, but one other does not go. There is bit too much welding under stem.

Don't ask me why, but I think I'm intimidated by Carsten and that's probably why I never reach out to him.

Out of all the retro bikes I'd like to own I think the Attitude in that colourway has to be right up there. Love to have one to roll out on a sunny, dusty summers day :D
