out of those 3 i'd have the klein, cindercone is nice and retro but mid range, the specialized, well i have never really like them and also i have seen issues with those rear mech hangers stripping their threads.

and the klein is stupid cheap, and i have never owned a klein.

Do the Cindercone. It looks to be a U-brake bike and would do well with a proper paint up and build. Were older Kona's TOYO built frames, or did they come from Hodaka?

The others are just aluminum tweener bikes. Lost in the worthlessness somewhere between VRC and Modern. :wink:

I have a soft spot for all 3 of them

My mate in highschool had a cindercone like that & I had just bought my first Cannondale, even though my frame cost the same as his bike, i just loved the way it looked 8)

The Klein, well , its not a "real" klein is it :roll:
I would love an Attitude or the likes

And the M2 Stumpy , i love the colours , reminds me of the Gulf racing cars :D

Keep the votes coming,
I may just buy all 3 :lol: :lol:
