    Wow, a gorgeous mint 92/93 attitude w/ M900 components on ebay! I've never seen that color before. Too bad it's not my size though.

    This is my Adept Race with marzocchi front fork.

    Just realised I've possibly posted in the wrong place, how old does a bike have to be to be considered a classic anyways?

    I'd delete this post if I new how.

    folks, how about turning over to commenting on e.g. the firstflight collection. there's much more material hanging around not being used. maybe i should call my small collection the museum of national mtb heritage and everything would be cool...

    Good thing its not your house then.

    Just because it doesn't suit your style, no reason to slag his.

    I have a NOS Sea/Sky 1994 Attitude with MC2/fork and 100% original build, right down to the Deathgrip tires.

    I have a NOS 1994 Attitude fuselage in Team Nightstorm complete with uncut steerer.

    I have two early '96 Mantra Pro's (the original design) w/integrated seat collars.

    I love letting these hang from the basement ceiling, and away from UV light where no one can see them.

    I also have a stack of three '97 Mantra Race's and a NOS Aeolus fuselage. Mainly sentimental.

    Let's not forget the 4 complete sets (F/R) of Ultimate levers and Arch Supremes, 4 complete Coda Magic cranksets, a NOS Sweetwings crankset, 3 or 4 Kooka Bonnie cranksets, some splatter, some rasta, Avalon Starlight crankset, misc. ano. stems, hubs and other doo-dads that I either bought new in the 90's, or picked up on the way-too-cheap on Ebay 6+ years ago before it became saturated with buyers.

    Will I ever use any of this stuff? No. Will I sell it? Well, everything has it's price. But someone's gotta save a little crazy painted, purple ano. mountain bike history, right? Besides, it's a lot easier to beat up a shiny new 2008 bike/part (that performs better than ever) and can easily be re-purchased from the LBS when it breaks.

    Here's a link to the other pics from that thread. Maybe I'll take some better pictures of it and the others this weekend when I'm back in town. I'm currently living 400 miles away from them.

    Adroit!

    So, a friend and former coworker just left the company and moved back to CA. He'd mentioned he had an Adroit in his garage and promised to send photos. This is too good not to share with this forum. The bike should get some usage now (and is not for sale)...

    If Bicycles were to have a Heart and a soul, I think they will be really sad if they never got to achieve their full potential..

    I know, I Know most Klein's are Becoming total "Garage queens" Like the Harley davidson bling out motorbikes and they are starting to cost more more than a painting from Salvador dali (I saw a adroit frame sell for more than $4000 de the other day)

    But at least To me Bikes are Like Viking warriors that deserve to have the chance of dyeing in battle and their souls go to Valhalla in peace.

    Now if we were taking about something really Special like a the first brezze, a old Pott's, Cunninham's or even a real doug bradbury manitou, i can understand the Museum quality status, but Klein's were made on a factory scale production manner, I even when to the factory when I was a dealer of them.


    To each his Own, I have four of them, totally trash with Ugly paints and I still love them like a "Ugly child" and I will keep trashing them and getting them muddy (Yesterday was pretty good wet and Muddy) until they can not do it any more..

    Yes, I do have a few spare sets of Bottom bracket and headset bearing when the current ones worn out.


    Ps: I did race the Mammoth Kamikase in 94' and 95' on my fully rigid Purple (rattle can spray painted) Klein attitude even with the stupid Mc1 handlebar and nothing feel apart reaching a little less than 50mph.

    That's the problem... I've been looking for that elusive USED Medium MC1 Attitude to build up as my primary singlespeed and race the piss out of. All I ever seem to find are pretty examples.

    When I do get a house of my own down the road, they will be hung on the walls in place of paintings. That's so much more exciting than a bad print of Starry Night, anyhow.

    Why shoot for an attitude when you can have an adroit? I'm just waiting for a large 93 adroit with shitty paint to hit ebay so's I can snatch it up. Its whats under the paint that really matters. Besides, as cool of an art piece as a Klein may make Id rather ride one (decked out in 3DV of course) than look at one any day.

    Do a search in the 'vintage retro classic' forum and you'll find all the info and pics you can handle. It tends to be a hot topic.

    ...but search for Klein, not for Klien

    the Attitude Race is a Trek era model and hence not really covered here to a great extend. Deffo not a bad bike and if a 97 or 98 even a really good bike but just not vintage enough.

    Does it have the straight head tube or the barrel-shaped one?

    1993 Rascal Moonrise

    Here's some pics of a 1993 rascal with a moonrise paintjob. I like the colors looks like some of the sunsets or moonrises we see here in Florida. Good bike for the flats here in the sunshine state and a nice looking rig. I call it the Rascal-Flats...cuz' the ladies love it. Haven't seen a moonrise fade yet, does anyone else have one? The bike rides great and climbs good. Beautiful bike, hard to work on, would be perfect for a surgeon mechanic with steady hands, and speciality tools. Still can't figure out how to overhaul the bottom bracket.

    nice color and indeed not too many Moonrise Kleins around. Here are two other Rascals

    http://www.wundel.com/classickleinnr75.html






    and an Attitude

    http://www.wundel.com/classickleinnr35.html



    there are more out there, i know one MC1 Adroit and a few MC1 Attitudes and one or two MC2 Attitudes in Moonrise.

    Use the search function for threads on the bottom bracket replacement, it has been discussed a few times. You can use the proper tools or just a hammer

    Here's some info about the removing the bottom bracket. Looks like surgery to me. Have you all ever changed or overhauled a 93 Klein bottom bracket?

    Yup A Dozen+ Times

    Yes, its really much easier that the manual makes it look.

    I don't own a frame with a threaded BB shell, they're all press fit like your Klein.

    I'm wondering I change it then? Do I thread a bolt through the middle of the spindle and pound it out with a rubber mallet? Which side comes out? How do I get it back in? PVC pipe? Does it just press in? Any tricks or pitfalls to look out for on removal? Install? What berrings do I get/use? Any help is appreicated, as I would like to finish the overhaul, before I put too many miles on it and it's squeaking a little now.

    1991 Klein Pinnacle

    So, I know this isn't the best photograph, but I found it as I was organizing. It was probably taken in 1991 or 1992. Wish I had better pictures of it! It's a 1991 Klein Pinnacle XT. I live in the Boston area and drove up to Manchester, NH to purchase it. It was frame only, I believe, and I had the shop built it up with a Deore XT gruppo. I don't remember too much of what else I had done with it, except I'm drooling over the thumb shifters! It was a 18" frame, which really looked more like a 16" with the steep angle of the top tube. It looked just like the bike that hangs in the hallway on Seinfeld.

    (sorry,keyboard went cravy) there is a bike hanging up somewhere or against the wall,even in advertisements for coffee or housekleening products there is a bike somewhere,I told my wife about it and she now coments and laughs about it when we see one,and we check out what type it is,now this is the one good thing that tv has done for the cycling world wether they like it or not they have put that image on your retina's as possibly a subliminal message to be more healthy or is it a conspiricy by bike companys to pay for having their bikes on tv so we buy them..........LOL sorry,watched too many X-files back in the 90's....do,do,do,doooaaaa.

    Nice crank caps! Two great builds too. Funny to see those Deore Thumbs on the Neopolitan Klein given all the discussion of them!

    Remember that recent red Attitude that wouldnt sell for $500? Can't find the link for some reason. The purple one is probably worth less. A Klein's gotta have one of the "cool" paint jobs to have value.

    Nice polished crankset.

    Few Adroits

    It seems that I've forgotten to post these pics here...

    This one is a 1993 Rain Forest in 18" size.
    Actually this frameset has already been sold to Spain to make way for something even better...







    This is a 1992 Adroit in Gloss Black.
    I sold the frame to the UK from where it was sold to Thilo in Germany.



    Here are some shirts that were custom made for me:




    Lastly, a hint of things to come: There is a STORM gathering in Finland...

    Wow awesome replica!

    I'd like to get my purple attitude repainted complete with fork... if anyone has a line on the black stickers with the white boarder please let me know.

    For now I won't feel to bad if it gets chipped as the paint job isn't perfect anymore.

    I don't mean to pee on your guys' parade, but I just have to ask.... Amazong paint jobs and welds aside, what is it about the ride quality of Kleins that attracts you guys? A big-tubed aluminum frame with a 50mm fork is one thing, a big-tubed aluminum frame with a big-tubed aluminum fork with an oversized steerer connected to a one-piece aluminum bar-stem combo is another.
    undefined Absolutely must have: Black Machine Tech Zeroflex brake levers (the ones with the rotating leverage adjuster)

    The few Kleins that I've ridden have actually ridden well. And I do understand the desirability. But at the same time, the tend to be over hyped IMO.

    not the best pic but it's all I have available at the moment... (gonna hafta dig thru the files and see what else I can find around here).

    Here we have Clifford, the big red bike:

    '97 (i think) Pulse Race, XT/XTR drivetrain, Moxey suspension seatpost, Manitou SXR fork, WTB "glitter" saddle, Kore Elite stem, etc... basically the rule for this bike was, the more garish looking the result the more likely it was for any given part to be added to the mix. In bright sunlight this thing was painful to look at but, it was a darned fast and agile ride. Sadly, I sold it off several years ago. I just wasn't getting ridden much anymore so it seemed like the right thing to pass it along to someone who would actually enjoy it. I still miss Clifford occasionally tho.

    Wow -- there are people just as crazy about Klein's as I am!

    My regular ride for the past 12 years is my Attitude. At last count it showed 41K+ miles on the odometer. It's been ridden from Seattle to San Diego with a trailer and slicks, ridden the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, rocked Moab, blasted Julian, descended the best of NorCal and finds it home again now in the Northwest in the Capital Forest and Skookum Flats and more. Figure @70% knobbies for fun and 30% slicks for daily commuting.

    Amazingly never a crack or a problem with the Klein parts themselves -- original headset, bottombracket, MC bars, etc. Paint is still nice with only one scratch from an accident. Forks, gears, chains, wheels, etc -- gone through many over the years.

    Have a Rascal in the shop that I picked up from Gary personally in Chehalis in early '90s that is getting rebuild shortly. Still looking for an Adroit or NOS Attitude with Klein oversize fork for the office and incase anything happens to my beloved Attitude above.

    My hook into Klein's to begin with? The northwest connection for one and being the bike to have on the local trails. Plus a friend formed most of the gradient tubing for Klein for years and thus my familiarity with their tubing. And once I rode one -- I couldn't imagine not having one for myself.

    Vintage Klein Riders

    Sounds like you've enjoyed your klein for a while. I like the pic with the BOB trailer. Nothing like a little MTB adventure... I just acquired a moonrise fade Klein Rascal in 93 and have enjoyed riding it. Compared to my 97 Steel Bianchi Denali, it feels super stiff and doesn't seem to punish you on long rides like other classic AL frames. It's a joy to ride, and interesting to work on with the internal cable routing, horizontal dropouts and pressed in BB, ...but it seems to be a nice rider. I acutally sent the money to a MIT.edu pay pal address for it, which is funny. As a collectible MTB, I like the engineering behind the brand and the fact that it was designed as a student at MIT in the USA. All and all it's a really nice bike, rides stiff and climbs good. Mine has a 1" head tube and a chrome marzocchi front shock. Real fun bike on the trails, especially here on the FL Flats.

    This may upset the Klein purists, but here is my Rascal with a Cannondale fork. I just couldn't see putting a steel fork on a alu bike. I like the way it feels, very stiff and light.

    1989 Klein Pinnacle

    A non Dentists Klein.
    Hope you like my new ride. A 1989 Klein Pinnacle. Very faded, scratched and oxidized. It was updated w/ Xt and XTR and jets from Rock Shocks by previous owner. After receiving it, i rode it, loved it. I added a Continental "verticle?" on rear and a serfas " Burner" on front, Scott AT2 bars, a modified Brooks saddle, some big Odyssey pedals, new chain and a nifty bottle opener ( from Wisecracker). My original intent was to strip it, paint it and add slicks. The faded color is awesome. Looks like a faded "Celeste ". Now i think i'll clean up the oxidation and clear coat it. Maybe i'll hang it over my piano. HA HA. I really love this bike and plan to unload my fancy $2400 full suspension GT. Its too squishy and easy to ride.
