View Full Version : Road Bike? Klein Quantum 58cm -- just seeing if there is interest out there.

Hate to see it go, but I have one too many bikes. This is a late 80's Klein Quantum aluminum frame, hand built by Gary Klein in Chehalis, WA. The welds are seamless, the frame is incredibly rigid making it a goat in the climbs. Paint looks fantastic with very few scratches and a small (>1/2") ding near the downtube shifters. I'm 6'0 and the standover height is just about 32". It has lived indoors all it's life and I'm the second owner.

Components: Shimano Tri-color crank, front derailleur, rear derailleur, SIS shifters, and brakes. Crankset is 53/39 175mm. Freewheel is 7 speed shimano HG 14-28. New Shimano chain (less than 20 miles)
Seat: Regal
Stem: ITM 130mm
Pedals: Sampson S4 anodized yellow and come with 3-hole cleats
Wheels: Handbuilt tubular rims with Continental 4000 tires (great condition) and Suntour Sprint hubs
Accessories: Red seatbag, two bottles, Avocet 40 speedometer and lights.

I also have some clincher rims with Bontrager Race-lite tires that could be negotiated in.

Lovely collector's bike in really great condition and exceptional paint job...just too aggressive for me.

I'm thinking $500 for APUG members and a local shop here will do the packing and shipping (75-100$). I'll post pictures when I get home, but I'm just seeing if there's any interest out there.

Cheers guys

One too many bikes? I didn't know that was possible. Velominati rule #12 speaks to this: http://www.velominati.com/blog/the-rules/#12 Good luck with the sale!

It can happen, especially when you live in a 500sq/ft apartment with another person (who also has too many).

Attached be the fotos. Two of the whole bike, one of the BB tag, and another of the ding near the shifter. Oh, and one of the derailleurs.

I had one of these. Those massive aluminum tubes did my knees in eventually.

Too... many... bikes...

Those words... they just don't sound right together!

Well it's sold anyhow. Just down to my Peugeot PX-10 at the moment, which I crashed on about 4 days ago and had to buy another helmet for. Building a beautiful Nishiki Tri-A for a friend as well. Steel is real!
