    Klein Dealers

    I was down in the LBS looking at a leftover Klein Attitude (or rather I would have if it had not been sold) asking about the future of Klein's and the dealer was less than optomistic about the future. He said there was only two Klein dealers in the US. One in New Mexico and one somewhere else.
    I have been searching for a Klein MTB frame for a project bike for a while. I was looking for a mint one but also considered something a bit tatty with a view to getting a factory repaint. I got to thinking that if all the Klein dealers are gone how do you get a Klein factory repaint ? If Klein itself folds then the option will be gone forever
    Anyone know who the magical two dealers are ?

    The link on the Klein website seems to be working for me now. I just kept getting errors every time I tried clicking on the link before.

    http://www.kleinbikes.com/support/dealers.php

    So there are 8 dealers in the US not the two I was told by the LBS dude

    Thanks for the help .

    In answering your question regarding the Klein factory repaint; you have nothing to fear. I recently, three months ago, purchased a weathered 1994 Klein Rascal frame with intent to have it repainted at the factory and rebuild it with all new components. Because Klein is owned by Trek, any Trek dealer can process the transaction for you. I visited my LBS, a Trek dealer, and one phone call to their Trek representative and the deal was done. Since Klein is in Trek's factory now, it all goes through the same office, etc. So long as you can find a Trek dealer, which shouldn't be difficult, you can easilly get your factory repaint.
