    Klein Adept Pro - wrong size frame

    I rushed into bidding into action for a Klein Adept Pro frame in mint condition... and I got a god deal on it, except, I didn't realize that it's the wrong size for me.

    The interesting design on the frame may allow for a larger size?

    For the those familiar with the bike - would you say that's the case?

    I don't want to spend hundreds of $$ only to realize that the bike is too big for me... I'm 5'8" and the frame is size XL. My ideal frame size for a 26" bike is 18".

    Definitely to big for you. I had one of those as a replacement to my Mantra that I broke. Built it up and sold it, never rode it once.

    They're more nostalgia pieces than something you'd actually want to ride. For just casual cruising around or a trip to the store, it would be alright. The seat on that would technically go low enough to get an appropriate pedaling height.

    Thanks guys, I'm so bummed. I spent $200 on it - frame with the shock. Not so much about the money but more about me wanting to build my own full suspension (Klein) bike

    You think I can sell it and get my $200 back?

    Yeah it's bike selling season, you'll be able to get it back. Might not be all of it, but you should come close.

    Just the frame & shock? Anything else you can part out on it?

    That's really all - frame with derailleur hanger and the original Fox shock. The frame is nearly in new condition though, just a couple of small nicks.

    Ok,

    Time to box it up, measure it & weigh it. Start farming it out on pinkbike, here, craigstlist & ebay. The sooner the better.

    Assume a 13% fee for ebay & paypal on the total selling price including shipping. Fed Ex will most likely be the cheapest shipping option.

    With or without the rear shock?

    I believe it's Fox Float RC, and that sells for about $55 on ebay (net $45). But I think the frame with the shock together might sell easier

    I'd agree together would be easier.
