See How COOL a vintage Mountain Bike can be.
Aside from the beauty of the paint scheme, this nimble MC2 Team Attitude tips the scale at a scant 24 pounds.
Klein Bicycles the Ultimate Status Symbol-While being the best vintage engineered bike in the world
“Vintage bike are similar to vintage sports cars in that they create lots of attention, while performing or parked by the side of the road! “
All our vintage bicycles are professionally cleaned, Tuned, & tested before getting professionally packed. We inspect each bike before listing for any defects.
Hand crafted in the original Klein Factory Chehalis, Washington, from gradient tubing. Original factory Tri color no sun fade, bright and shinning color, and clear coat,
While out for a test ride people would ride by and say to their friends check out that “Klein”, other would say: “Is that a custom bike?” we would get asked all the time.
This is a very valid question, since you are riding down the road in a bike styled like no other, seemingly straight out of a Hollywood Kustoms shop.
The Racing Team Fade is one of the coolest paint jobs on a bike you will ever see- please Look at all the pictures of this gorgeous original bike.
Full Klein Internal cable routing
Notice how the brake and shift cables go thru the frame and not on the outside, a classic Klein hallmark that not only looks better but performs better too. And notice how the rear frame the tubing goes from square to round; Gary Klein first developed the concept in 1973 as part of an aluminum bicycle project at MIT.
“She Float’s like a butterfly and stings like a bee”
Tips the scales at only 24 pounds.
I have taken the nimble MC2 Team Attitude out for a quick ride around the local (paved) roads here, she tracks straight, XTR M900 shifts like a fine watch, pulls up hills like a frighten mountain goat.
The Klein MC2 Attitude series are one the best bikes Gary Klein ever made.
LIGHT & NIMBLE
This Bike corners like she on rails, has incredible sports car type precision steering, climbs hills like a frighten mountain goat.

What’s the scoop with Klein?
Sure, they’re the most beautiful bikes in the world to look at, with many models featuring their own special “debossed” graphics, smooth welds, specially manipulated tubing called “gradient” that makes these the most perfect machines ever built in terms of delivering power to the real wheel and precise control to the front…
Want to see more of why nothing else compares to a Klein? Check out the “Attitude ” label on the bike above, and the close-up. That’s not a decal…it’s called “de-bossed paint.” They actually mask off the topcoats so a different color is exposed, creating a beautiful appearance found on no other bike (at least none that I know of). Trust me, these photos don’t do it justice, but you get the idea.
Did you know that Klein frames were welded using a special patented process at super low freezing temperature apparently this imparts something magical to the ride.
Even the least-expensive Kleins feature tubing and technology found nowhere else, including “gradient” tubing which begins its life as Aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, inspected every single foot for imperfections (bicycle industry standard is every 6 feet), and specially formed, tapered and manipulated into something very special…your new bike frame! Check it out…look at the chainstays of any Klein and the differences will be obvious. Look at the headtube/downtube junction, and the way they’ve created a special shape for the downtube to ensure a better joint.
The differences are everywhere…you can see them, and better yet, you can feel them when you ride. And now, you can buy a superior Klein aluminum bike for pretty much ½ the cost as the inferior wannabes.
