This bike is a classic rare beauty! 58cm frame that will fit 5’10”-6’0″. What a great frame. Once built up, you will fly. Only 5.8 lbs with a fork!
Klein’s proprietary ZR 9000 Aluminum blends the advantages of aerospace-grade aluminum, zirconium, copper and manganese into lighter, stronger tubing with a 98% better fatigue life than industry-standard aluminum. Its improved strength allows thinner Gradient tube walls in key areas of the frame, which reduces frame weight by 15%. You’ll be astounded how light and easy pedaling this makes your new Klein! High-modulus carbon-fiber composite appears in the seatstay assembly, the Aeros Carbon fork and in the chainstays of select Klein models. This composite doesn’t just reduce weight, it adds stiffness and capitalizes on carbon’s capacity to absorb road and trail vibration. End result: climbing efficiency, viciously quick acceleration, tight, stable, predictable cornering and comfort you’ll appreciate on long days in the saddle. Klein’s proprietary process creates smooth, void-free welds that are aesthetically cleaner and significantly stronger. Because welds receive the most stress of any part of a bike frame, strong welds are critical to a frame’s longevity. Because void-free welds don’t include the weakening bumps and pits common to inferior welds, their smooth composition dramatically increases a Klein frame’s life.

A little about the seller:
I’ve been in the cycling industry for more than 30 years (I know, that makes me old!). I’ve been a professional bicycle mechanic for most of those years, including working locally at Lee’s Cyclery before they became Trek Stores. Now I work from home as a Customer Success Manager for a software team. But I still love fixing up and working on bikes and riding them too!
Purchase from me with peace of mind. Not only can you trust my years of experience, but I will also fit you for the bike and provide any mechanical insight at the time of purchase.
I ship USPS Ground. I do have a video to help in putting back together. I try to keep it simple. It will be packed very well, but if you see any damage to the box or Part, keep the box and packing material plus, take pictures. I do insure all parts that are shipped. In addition, if shipped out of Colorado, there is no Sales Tax. You can also combine shipping with multiple items.
Installing Your New Part
Park Tool has a huge library of videos that can give you great insight and tech tips to help install parts. At any time you feel it’s not quite right, or something is not working correctly. Please go to your local shop to be safety checked.

Super easy, very relaxed setup. Justin was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we had. I got the sense he is great about meeting you where you are at and helping meet your needs. I have been recommending him to all my friends for their current and future cycling needs!
A few weeks ago I went here to buy a smaller road bike in the hopes of achieving a better fit for my body. Justin had several to choose from in my size and had them all already outside and ready to look at when I walked up. He was so helpful in adjusting the fit and answering all of my questions and even swapping out some things here and there to make sure that when I left I would be leaving happy with a bike that I loved. I can't imagine a more perfect bike buying experience! Thanks!
Justin's got the process of buying/selling used bikes down to a science. We were scheduled for 30 mins but ended up doing many iterations of adjustments which took us about 2 hours to get the right bikes/fit. Justin is very patient and a great communicator helping beginners like us understand the nuances of bike fitting. He operates out of his garage which makes the process very personal and enjoyable. He won't try to sell you stuff that you don't need. Me and the wife are very happy with our bikes. Highly recommend.
I bought a bike from Justin earlier this year. I had it shipped to Los Angeles and it came perfectly packaged, easy to build on my own, and was helpful to answer questions later. You can tell Justin cares about the bikes he sells from the quality and his customer service. The bike I bought from him got me hooked on cycling and completely changed my life :)
Ten stars and highly recommend without hesitation! New to road biking and was perfectly matched, fitted, and prepared to explore Colorado. Patient, professional, crazy knowledgeable about all things bikes, and went far beyond expectations in service and assistance. I could not be happier and wish every transaction was this seamless, informative, and fun!
