One of our local charidie [sic] shops has a Klein Attidue Race circa 97 for sale for £400.

Any one know about these and if this is a good price for a recent 'classic'? Seems to have Shim Deore XT group set and RockShox Judy forks.

Seems a nice looking bike.

    Too much money for something that old. For example I'm selling a GT Zaskar World Cup frame, with Marzochhi MX pro forks, 9 speed SLX kit, Hayes carbon disc brakes, DT swiss wheels for just 50 quid more
  • Too old to be worth £400.
    And conversely, not old enough to be considered an antique/classic worth £400.

    Did think it quite steep. At first I thought it was £40 hence it caught my eye. I'll give it a miss.

    Ta.
  • Klein's are pretty collectible though, although '97 would be a trek built bike iirc. Retrobike.co.uk would be a better place for your question in all honesty :)

    97 was pretty much all Trek. All the Klein features like weird headset, colour cordinated fork, fat chainstays etc were gone.
    Which makes it pretty worthless, but far better than a real Klein if you actually want to use it, as you can find parts.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    If it's in the right size then I would buy it.

    In fact, I've got the '97 Klein Attitude Race in the orange colour - it'll be at the top of the google search.
