I ran this on the what bikes to buy but it got buried in a hurry.
My LBS owner and pretty good riding buddy is selling his 2006 Klein Attitude Frame (in a really awesome custom yellow paint)--I was looking for a hard tail to build up with parts I have from another bike (truvativ team cranks, Juicy Sevens Am Clasic 350 wheels, bunch of X9 stuff, etc). Frame is in great shape--he's mostly a fire road cruiser (actually-he's mostly a roadie) and it's less than a year old. But I'm also looking at picking up a New Banshee Viento-sounds rugged yet a good climber with genral xc traits and the price is right.
Either way, this would be a second bike for fast rides in hilly areas--though rocks and roots here in western, MA are unavoidable on any trail--any thoughts on these bikes-what to expect from a Klein Attitude or Banshee Viento (oh,I'll run either with a reba team 100mm)??
I'm not a hard tail rider so this will be a change either way.
