this is the only 1st generation pulse frame that was painted gator, if you see another, its an imposter and an aftermarket repaint.
I have been asked how I was able to get this frame - it only exists because my klein dealer requested to speak directly to the paint department and spoke directly to the painter who agreed to do a one-off. I was originally denied my request for this paint from Klein's ordering dept, since it had been discontinued since 1993. because of my dealer's history of selling kleins for 12 years, he was able to convince the painter to do a one off. I did not choose the decal colors or placement, that is all klein factory
this is one of THE original pulse frames that was handmade right along side the attitude and adroit fuselages.
these originals were frames only, no options for components or builds.
the pulse was specifically designed to fit suspension forks and headsets of all makes and models popular during its time period - instead of using the klein fork/stem/headset system. this allowed for custom builds
this pulse is basically an attitude frame with a modified headtube that accommodates 80mm suspension forks.
this pulse has the same race geometry, tubes, paint, welds, and everything else that an elite klein frame has with a
31.6 seatpost and with the real fat klein tubes! 2"downtube it has a shimano xtr m910 pressed in bottom bracket
its truly Klein's last design for a high end hard tail racer
