To say Klein's were lust worthy would be a serious understatement.

A teenage me can still vividly recall stopping in my tracks at the sight of the Klein hanging on the wall at Cecil Walker on Elizabeth.  Trams clanged past in the background but it didn't break my gaze.

Was it the paint?  Was it the oversized whisker thin tubes, or the space age designs of the Mountain bikes?  Was it because one hung on the wall in every episode of Seinfeld?

Whatever it was, a lasting impression was made on the industry, owners and aspirational ones by a brand that would eventually be swallowed up by Trek

This 2001 Quantum Pro with super low mileage and incredibly well cared is a stunning example of the Klein road racing bike.

Featured as it was in the catalogue, in Plum Crazy paint scheme.

 

 

 

Every which way you turn to look at this bike it appears to be a different colour.  Mesmerising from every angle.

No holding back on the rebuild spec with Campagnolo Record 11 and Lightweight tubulars.

 

 

 

This stunning machine is the first bike of the 2020 FYXO Bicycle Calendar.  What a way to start the year ahead.

Pick one up in the shop and rekindle the lust!

Woah! Considering purple is my favorite color and I have a bike nicknamed Purple Rain (I share a DOB with Prince), this is up my alley!

Considering that most pro bikes these days really, really don’t do it for me aesthetically, I’m loving old road framesets with modern parts more and more.

You nay sayers are both wrong. The bike was at Cecil Walker in Elizabeth street and that’s where young Andy stopped to look at it. Hence he “[stopped] […] at the site of the Klein”.

Yep, he stopped at the site of the sight, or was it that “he stopped at the sight, at the site”
or was it that he hasnt’t sighted a thesaurus for a while, does not have one onsite?

“stopping in my tracks at the site of the Klein” Recalling a religious experience that moved you so much you forgot to proof read.
