    Info on green painted Mountain Kleins from Rotations Bicycle Center

    So, I picked up a Mountain Klein frameset, 2nd gen (?...rear derailleur cabling below chainstay) in green and I thought it was a repaint but a matching green one recently sold on eBay; auction image attached. The key similarity is a "Rotations Bicycle Center, Southampton NY" chainstay sticker.

    The majority of Mountain Kleins I've seen are red, with a few blues and gradients, but never green.

    Anyone know any background info with these green frames?

    Southampton....probably wanted bikes to be the same color as their mountains of cash.
    I am never surprised by the blatant consumerism in that area when I visit my father-in-law's place in Sag Harbor.

    Guessing it had slicks on it?


    At least it matchs your wall.

    Cool frame either way, and it looks mint (green joke).
