    1999 Klein Mantra porn

    I am in the final stages of a project bike restore in my garage.

    I picked up the original bike off ebay back in 2006 and collected all the parts required for the refit, but then I was "early retired", was in the job hunt, moved and finally got my round tuit back in gear.

    I took it out for a shake down roll and nothing broke or fell off so I'm pretty happy.



    heres a slide show featuring my "new" ride:

    That saddle was originally on my 1985 Jamis Dakar.

    It's now on my bench, as on Saturday, I mounted up my restored B-17 Brooks on the Klein

    Nice headset!
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Specialized sucks dong

    He's serious and I agree with him. Original Turbo saddles are awesome.

    The rest of the bike isn't my thing, but good on you for getting it together and out on the trail.

    This bike really climbs like a goat, Gary was a heck of a designer.
    The disk brakes are a big improvement too.

    There's one of these on Craigslist in my area that won't go away:

    The guy has been relisting it for months for the same price.

    Nice H_Tuttle! I'm a fan of the Mantras. I recently finished my "rebuild" too (it was a CL special that was in need of some love). I'm diggin' the Turbo, but like you... put a B17 on my Mantra. Mine's red with the black rear triangle and black Judy up front. Love the way it rides and looks. I'm on it more these days than my single speed. That says a lot!
