Here's my Klein Mantra. It's custom painted by an Australian graphic artist. I saw Gerrit's Nightstorm and fell in love with it immediately. But unfortunately, there were a few bits and pieces which I didn't like, thus, requested for a improvisation. It was autographed by Tinker Juarez just recently when he was here in Singapore.

Built up with mostly XTR M960 pieces with Rockshox SID Team, Thomson Elite and most importantly, Tune Speedneedle. I know I know, it is not the best of component choices. But I purchased them but didn't use them at all so you know what I mean...

Pictures here are a mixture of my own and some from the artist when he just completed the built. Enjoy...

Not usually a Klein fan, but once in a while one comes up that's an absolute peach, just like this one!

That paint job looks so much better without the purple brains of the original. 8) 8)
