    Oldest Mountain Klein

    Paul Hoyer formally of Sun Valley Idaho pulled this out of his garage last week. We were trying to remember just when he put it together back in the day...What year? 1987 or 1988? Pretty sure they were available in 1985. Was this the first year for MT. Klein?



    Does anyone remember if these were frame only or available with full groupo?



    Original chrome fork was sold here to one of you a few years ago...





    Rides great-When I moved to Idaho from CA I debated between one of these and a SlingShot. About as far as East is from West...Settled on the first generation SlingShot. And Sun Valley became one of the biggest markets for Klein in the US.

    that was me there it is



    they had three build kits for the Mountain Kleins - Mountain Race, Elite Trail and Trail



    that one seems to be an 85 or early 86 with the rear der cable running inside the chain stay.

    Frame decals are painted like originals.
    Frame was painted first white, then paint masks added and rest of colours.
    Then paint masks away and clear coat on.

    I have stickers what I can put on fork and see how it looks.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Klein Team Storm / Tinker Replica

    Forgot to post these here earlier...

    Klein's 1993 team gear:



    Same stuff but with Storm jersey...



    I was able to obtain the Leader Gara Pro helmet from a ex-Klein employee with a help from Thilo. It's 1 of 5 custom painted helmets made in Klein's paint shop. 2 of the helmets went to Tinker, 2 to Sara Ellis and this 1 is a "surplus one".

    my '96 Pulse II which is my faithful companion since more than 11 years now

    since a while as "Kleiningham Big Black" with RM-2 dirt drops and XTR M900 STIs on DKG plates and Suntour towers and DiaCompe brake levers. Now after quite some adjustments and fine tuning it rides, brakes and shifts surprisingly well. I really like that set-up.















    I left it dirty and mounted proper tires and seat so that the Rumpfmeister won't complain

    not really, they pop up on ebay every now and then. there are similar (but not as nice ) versions still made. more difficult it is to find a suitable ahead stem for them. tall and not too much reach...

    Nice Carsten! Looks like a nice user friendly dirt drop bike. And its dirty! Fantastic.
    No complaining out of me.

    Looks like you run your brake levers up higher on the bar?

    I'm looking forward to getting my DKG/M900 setup going.

    they are relatively high but that's how i prefer it. i've modified the brake lever bodies where they attach to the bar so the levers are a bit closer to the bar and i have no problems at all to reach them when riding in the drops. my large hands certainly help. actually i also needed to mount the shift levers further up to create room for my hands and so i can reach them easier with my thumbs. i drove around for two weeks with old loose bar wrap and the allen keys in the pocket for on the fly adjustments and only now fixed everything in place and did the final wrapping. now i will ride it a while and if i then still like it i will try to get a custom made (LD?) stem. this one is almost perfect but it could be half an inch higher and have half an inch less reach. but i wouldnt be surprised if i get used to it.

    btw, i gave up using the nerve wracking tiny bearing balls to fix the DGK plates on the towers after i lost the last one i had and now use a serrated washer between plates and towers. MUCH easier to handle.

    Here's the latest build. Paint is great, pearl white but not original obviously. I also had the decals be the 93 version which I prefer to the 95/96 decals.

    Well Im interested in how the headset and fork are intergrated on kleins,are the fork stem made for only kleins or can any fork fit,I have naver seen a klein except for photos so forgive me for not knowing,Itake it that it has sealed precision bearings?
    Okay,okay,so how do I put it back together,and where did this spring come from

    yes, they are Klein specific and only a Klein fork will fit unless reducers are used. Oversized sealed bearings are pressed and glued into the head tube and the fork is pressed and glued into the bearings. The earlier MC1 bar/stem combo works like a normal quill stem and the steerer tube length of the fork is frame size specific. The forks for the later MC2 system has a longer steerer tube which can be cut to fit smaller frame sizes. The bar/stem combo works more like an ahead stem with a conical collet that fixes the stem on the steerer tube. Picture is from the 1995 catalog and shows the MC2 set-up.

    i have been told that the "smoke" was made using a torch on the base paint and then clear coat. not sure if it is really smoke or a discoloration caused by the heat.

    that style of paint was done on a lot of earlier steel bikes. the torch was used and then it was clear coated. Im drawing a blank on what custom builder started that, but I remember Diamond Back came out with a production version of that paint around 88 or so.

    Mountain Goat was one of the builders that offered a smoked finish. I believe it had been popularized by Mondia on road frames, however, years earlier.

    Yep, D.B. had one in production. I sold one of those F/F a few years ago, part donor bike, forget the model now (Apex ?). It was actually a really nice look. Jeff @ F.F.B. has an early goat with that style smoke/ paint. Probably one of the first...

    Any vintage fork with 1" steerer would do. If you want to keep the headset and stem/handlebar combo, you'll need a fork with threaded steerer. If you buy one with threadless steerer, you'll have to buy new headset and stem to go with it.

    If I was you, I'd keep the Pinnacle as it is and buy myself a modern bike with full suspension or at least with front suspension. Pinnacle's geometry is not meant for suspension forks and if you would install a new fork (Marzocchi and Pace make versions with 1" steerer option), the height of the fork would transform you bike into a chopper. So not recommended. If you really have to install a suspension fork into your Klein, then I'd suggest Rock Shox Mag 21, Specialized Future Shock or Manitou 2, 3 or 4. All of these can be found on eBay from time to time.

    Thanks for the info I think I will keep it stock and look for something I can beat up on the back roads. But I'll never stop riding my KLEIN.

    Thanks

    Nice photos on the bridge of similar color.

    Clean bike. Is it a rider?

    Great tire combo too. I like both of those tires a lot. Both are good front or rear actually.

    that green ringle post has to be very rare. Perfect for that bike. Perfect for my bike but sadly I don't have one and probably will never.

    Anybody has or knows of a source of "stickers" for one of the old Red "MountainKlein's"

    I have a frame that I want to restore to her original luster, but i'm missing the Klein "Markings"

    Thanks in advance, I want them Perfect, not the cheesy vinyl cuts from the UK for sell on E-bay.

    that bike is beat

    look at the dent in the top tube and the chain suck. That is a gnarly dent. I would look for a better frame to put you parts on. Sorry. Good luck with another sea and sky but I wouldn't give you 200 for a dented piece of ......? Nice seat post.

    You're nuts if you think that bike is "beat". Battle scars just give it a bit of personality and take away the fear of "don't want to scratch up a classic" so it can be ridden as it was originally intended to be.

    yep, nuts. such a dent is almost common on the Gradient tubed Kleins. the tubes are so thin walled in the center that the brake lever will dent them easily. the chain suck - although avoidable - doesn't look critical either. nice rider for sure...

    Good eye on the wear, but there's worse out there. I can't say this is 'beat'.

    A little patina is good. Just means it can be ridden without worry.

    Just finished building mine up...

    It's a '96 Adroit, technically "post-Trek", but from all the reading I've been doing it doesn't have much Trek influence beyond the black MC2 bar/stem and the slightly smaller diameter downtube (ala Attitude).

    I picked up the bike in it's original stock XT m737 build for $480 a few weeks ago, but most of the parts were just tired and worn out. I stripped it down to the bottom bracket and started looking for parts to build it with.

    After perusing eBay for parts, I came to the conclusion that it was going to cost me a small fortune to build this bike up the way I wanted to. Then I came across an S-Works Epic on craigslist here for pretty cheap and swapped all the parts over to the Klein.

    Now it's got a full XTR build and Mavic Crossmax SL's (rim) and is right around 23lbs.

    After selling the leftover parts and frame/fork from the Epic, my end cost for all the parts was about $150(!).

    It's a 20" according to the serial number. I'm about 5' 10", and while the tech manual says this should fit me, it feels a little bit big! Ugh, I guess I'm used to smaller frames; I feel a bit stretched out on the top.

    The fork was upgraded with the Total Air (Englund) internals which actually seem pretty decent. Definitely rideable, but I'm eyeing that Reset-racing headset adapter to be able to use a newer fork one day.

    Anyway, I'm psyched. It's the bike I always wanted in college and now it's mine!

    Good catch and the price was a bargain!

    About sizing: I'm 6ft tall and prefer 19" Klein instead of 20" or even 21" which Klein claims that would fit me.

    It's too bad that Klein saved money and stopped painting suspension forks to match the frame. Especially that yellow Judy SL looks unfitting with such a gorgeous frame.

    Actually the original XT build from Klein used XT V-brakes, so the center pull stop is just how they made those Judys back then.

    Does anyone think this Judy has any resale value? I'd be in luck if it had the bolt on crown. Then I could swap in some SIDs...but now I think my only option for a new fork is to get the spendy reset-racing adapter.

    Also, I'm not sure if I've ever seen painted Judy forks from Klein. I think they just came in Yellow afaik.

    stick with the judy, looks ace! Don't know resale price, it ain't much the FSX might be worth something but otherwise keep it!

    the original build was with XT cantis. the frame is not V-brake ready without the Klein adaptor which your bike seems to have or other modifications. the SID is not THAT much better than a Judy with Englunds, just flexier. the Judy painted black would already look nicer or you could have e.g. Spectrum paint it to match. or find FSX carbon lowers and swap them out.

    the next easy upgrade would be a Manitou from the later Adroits and Carbon Mantras. those had the Klein specific steerer and are a bit better. all the newer forks are too long and will screw up the great riding characteristics.

    hmm I believe that the Sid acctually has a higher axle to crown height then the judy. I think u could try an 80mm's fork and see, But well tweak the judy and you'll be fine. It's really easy to modify and really light so...

    You might be right. But the '96 Klein catalog says both were used in the XT build:

    Front brake: XT V-Brake
    Rear brake: XT canitilever

    There is a picture of an Attitude with the Judy SL in that catalog with the XT cantis, but a Mantra with Judy SL with the V-Brakes and the non-canti brace.

    I just did an 'obverhaul' on the Total Air cartrdiges inside the fork and gave everything a good cleaning and adjusted it to my riding weight. Feels pretty good actually. I took it for quick spin and did a little wheelie and flipped right over in the parking lot! haha. Wow, this thing wants to GO!

    I'll take it for it's first ride (by me) next weekend. Too smokey from the fires today unfortunately.

    Hey Guys,

    I have just recently picked up myself a nice Rascal frame, size small, and I'm kind of in a dillema as far as the paint condition. We all know that Klein's are famed for their amazing paint jobs, more specically, on the higher end models. My Rascal is not one of those models, however the once great paint job is now starting to chip and show wear. I'm debating on whether or not to paint it myself, I was thinking of a satin white, black, or gray, and doing some sort of contrast painted in "KLEIN" (gray with black, white with gray, etc). What do you guys think? The point of this bike is my year round commuter, road tires in the summer and studs in the winter.

    Here's the frame now, I'm looking at a nice chromo fork for 45 bucks at jensonusa.com, gloss black of course



    As you can see there is quite a bit of chipping

    And here's my mountain bike, Palomino, hands down the best bike ever made! I just got the Maverick pivot upgrade and man, this thing is fantastic, can't wait for a new set of forks!



    Thanks for the help!

    Here goes. 1995 Klein Rascal with some updates. I can still keep up with rest of them and just can't let her go. Honestly, I can't afford a new FS so I take real good care of her.

    Picked up my first Klein mtb recently off craigslist. No pictures were listed, so I was happy to see it was a mix of XT when I checked it out. Not stoked on the spray-painted black accents, but I'm just going to flip it. After I pull off what I really want- which are the black XT hubs. Anyone familiar with these Mavic wheels? They are new to me.

    Here is my 1990 Unicorn. I used to sell Kleins in Sun Valley Idaho in 90 and 91 and always wanted one but when making $7 an hour they where a little out of reach.
    I found this in central Oregon about 6 months ago and it is a dream to ride.

    I knew a guy that moved from Mtn Bike Specialists in Seattle to go to a bike shop in Ketchum back in 90-91. He was a big Salsa Fan and into glass blowing, I think. Any way, really good guy. Did some great riding with him.

    Wow, nice bikes guys. I've held on to every bike I have ever owned (except the one that I cracked), the one good bike that got away, was my Klein.

    One of theese days I'll repurchase it. (In a larger size).

    I have been very fortunate to just pick up a 1992 Klein Attitude with the Horizon paint job (blue/purple/pink). Complete bike with original headset/bars. The original fork was also included, and was removed and placed in a box the day it was purchase new. Absolutely gorgeous. Anyways, I noticed that at the top of the steerer there is a yellow sticker with the following numbers: 48525 (and) 7/9 . Just curious if these numbers have any significance, as well as if Gary himself would have been the one to have written the info. At first I was thinking it was numbered like an art piece would be, but I'm sure there were a lot more than 9 of this model and paint scheme produced. Thanks.

    I've been asked to post more shots of my Klein Aeolus. So here it is.

    I've recently removed the purple tape of the bars (which looked like crap, not visible in this photo) and replaced it with clear cinelli tape and upgraded the pedals to something rideable.

    Nipples on the tubular wheels are, of course, original or early purple and orange, now somewhat faded.

    These pictures are about a year and a half old before I made the bike rideable by correcting minor stuff like cabling, tires and minor adjustments.





    The rest of the set can be found here:

    Well I hope nobody gets offended, the hardest thing about owning a klein is ... telling your parents you're gay.

    Disclaimer: It's just a joke in reference to the flamboyant colors. I own two myself. A shop guy told me that one when he saw me admiring a storm attitude. I laughed so hard I nearly lost bladder control.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Not a mtb but a hybrid: 1995 Klein Adept









    20.14 lbs for a 14 years-old bike is not too bad...especially with bone-stock XT parts.

    Late last night, this Klein Adroit Pro showed up on Craigslist here in Phoenix. I bought it early this morning, and this is what it looked like.



    It seems to be pretty original, but the previous owner had put on these narrow wheels with 1.25 tires. They had to go.



    Yesterday afternoon and evening were spent building up another recent Craigslist find, my 2000 Breezer Lightning. The cranks and wheels came off my old 2000 Rockhopper FSR.

    Since I still need to buy some more parts for the Breezer, I decided to put its wheels and tires on the Klein.



    Now it's a mountain bike again, and more importantly, the dog is happy.



    Once I get everything dialed in, this will be my "fast" bike, with its new nine-speed 13-25 cassette.



    Right after taking this last picture, I put some air in the fork. When I connected my compressor's air hose, the fork instantly grew almost three inches.

    This is the Manitou Mars CL fork. Are parts still available for this?

    Natural colors by Klein

    Many have idolized while others have railed them. But the certain is that they do not generate indifference and, above all, they do not go unnoticed: they are unique!
    I spent some time surfing the Internet looking for similarities between Klein colors and the natural real ones that are supposed to be represented by. The aim: to pay them a tribute.

    So man, prepare your retinas for a riot of colors! Here they are for all of you!!




    MOONRISE LINEAR FADE

















    SUNBURST LINEAR FADE









    HORIZON LINEAR FADE







    GATOR LINEAR FADE









    CORAL REEF













    SEA & SKY











    STORM









    NIGHTSTORM









    RAIN FOREST













    MARDI GRAS

    Here's my new-to-me 2000 Adroit Pro fuselage, which I bought on eBay a week ago. It was delivered yesterday afternoon.

    I haven't run the three cables through the frame yet. I've ridden it about ten miles as a 32-14 one-speed. It's lively, smooth, and silent.



    The new one on the left I bought for the riding fast on the road, and the other one is set up to go anywhere, anytime, comfortably (often with the dog beside me).



    The tires I bought for the new "road" bike are the CST Cyclops 2.4, with a tread that wraps around far enough to let you drag your elbow in a turn.



    I would have preferred a plain slick tread, but based on my limited experience with them, these work very well on the road.

    These tires were recommended to me by a Maxxis tech when I called and asked about a lighter version of the Maxxis Hookworm 2.5.



    CST Cyclops 2.4 on the left, and Maxxis Hookworm 2.5 on the right, with Dig Dog, who's ready to rock.

    A few impressions of my 1992 Attitude horizon lf. The frame was never ridden, but the previous owner drilled the top tube to run the frame with maguras .

    Is one of the pics photoshopped? The "after" pic of the before/after's showing the Nokon cable going into the Horizon LF top tube looks a little strange in the area where the cable is covered up going into the frame. Just wondering if it's the work of photoshop or how you figured out how to cover that up area to blend it into the frame. Nice bike.

    I give you credit for using your skills to make the best of a bad situation. I've seen too many Kleins w/ electrical tape or Zip ties holding the v brake cable to the frame. Now, if only you could duplicate the Horizon linear fade on that handy dental work you did.

    Recently on eBay I found an NOS set of Campagnolo Record OR brake cables, which I adapted to a pair of XTR levers. Then, after Chuck at Bike Barn here in Phoenix explained how to do it, I fed the three cable housings through the frame. Yesterday some new parts from Cambria arrived, and last night I put everything together. My 18-inch Adroit Pro now has a Bontrager Race Lite seatpost and saddle, a Dura-Ace chain, Saint shifters, XTR front and rear derailleurs, and a pair of Avid Ultimate V-brakes, which are superb. The only remaining changes I have planned for this bike are to upgrade the crankset and bottom bracket. As it is, it's solid, silent, and fast.

    Here's my 94 Rascal I just bought from someone that placed an ad " Klein Bike For Parts"
    It needs some elastomers for the fork, and a total disassembly, clean and lube, but as far as the frame it looks great ! No major scratches, dings or dents

    The 97's have the fake carbon sticker forks and the square fork crown , the 96's did not . I got the bike in the middle of summer that year it was hand Delivered to our shop by the Klein REP in NYC .We were the only store to got them and we got 2 and i was the first.

    I wonder how many had the integrated seatpost binder ? Cant be many they only made 200 of these bikes. I know there is a low number for 96 when i got it from the rep he said like 75 for that year.

    How is that a 96 with 97 judy Sl on it?


    It has a integrated seatpost binder so Is there a way to really tell what year a mantra is? maybe the serial number? reading this Thread is making me nuts .

    Strange. My is 0896047. They must have changed the binder section sometime that year. I purchased my new from a dealer in '97 and I know they had it for awhile. It had that '97 fork on it from the shop. They could have built it up with that fork on it. They must have.

    That one with 08/96 serial is effectively a 1997 model since the new model year started production after the summer holidays. The frame could still be a left-over from 1996 model year (which would explain the integrated seat clamp) but Klein just installed a 1997 Judy since they had them available.

    So when did they change over to a Seat post clap? now it got me thinking on it since my bike has a 96 judy on it.

    I should have posted this 2 years ago when my bike turned 20, but, oh well. This is my '88 Pinnacle Elite. I got it from Jay at Bike Beat in Orange, CA (one of the favorite shops of the MBA "wrecking crew" back in the day). The original owner was Mark Grayson of Northstar Cycles. I guess he didn't ride it much because it was basically new. I rode it with the full XT-spec but then, having convinced myself that XT was too heavy, replaced everything with Suntour XC Comp or XC Pro in 1990 along with the Bontrager composite fork. I had to wait until around 1997 or so to finally replace the U-brake with a WTB rollercam. The funny thing is that there are basically no Shimano parts left on this bike, and the game is keeping it running that way 22 years after it was made.

    My Klein Pulse II. The original owner I bought it from told me it was a 96 model, but I think the consensus is it may be an early 97 because the cable routing is different. Repainted Yeti blue by the folks who paint Yeti frames (according to the prior owner). The guys at my LBS really like the bike.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Here's my 1996 Adroit.
    It's a real Adroit with that all-important 2" downtube. Made in September 1995.
    It originally had a Judy SL but replaced it with a rigid Strata fork taken from a broken frame.
    Fork & MC2 combo have been repainted to match the frame.
    For the parts, I chose to use XT M737 for those were the ones that this actual bike was equipped when it was bought. My innovation was '96 XT/Tune spec without going to Tune wheelset & cranks but just staying with Tune seatpost & QRs + alu bolt tuning.
    Now it's 9.42 kg with those fat 2.35" Klein tires.
    Usually these 'Burgundy-Blue Linear Fade' bikes are built with either purple or basic black/silver setups, so I decided to do something different and go with ano blue. It actually goes quite well with the blue in the paintjob.

    The orange 2000 Adroit Pro shown near the top of this page has been given some upgrades that include an XTR M970 crankset.

    The blue bike is a 1999 Attitude Race that I built up from an almost-NOS Craigslist frame, an NOS Spinner fork like the one I used on my Breezer Lightning, a Syntace stem, XT cranks with a single chainring, and a 135-gram aluminum American Classic nine-speed cassette. Both bikes have Alpha Q 110-gram carbon bars, Avid levers and V-brakes, Thomson Masterpiece seatposts, Terry saddles, XT hubs and Mavic 717 rims with Continental Race King Supersonic 2.2-inch 450-gram tires.

    Both of these bikes have a solid feel to them that inspires confidence. The Adroit Pro rides comfortably and virtually silently, and now weighs 22 1/2 pounds. The Attitude Race weighs 20 1/2 pounds, and is the most-responsive, best-climbing, and fastest fat-tire bike I've ever ridden.

    It's an official Klein paintjob. This one, 'Team Storm' was only available for team-sponsored racers and was not sold to public. Only about 30 frames with this paintjob were made, most of them being Adroits. I only know one another like this, it's a 20"/Medium frame and the last knowledge is that it's in Denmark.
