This is where you mount the Street Klein. Grab those all-in-one Mission Control handlebars. bMHR
The Street Klein would also make a damn good trials bike bMHR.
The front end of the Street Klein shows many of the brand names of components. Modern Onyx brakes, dope Kore platform pedals, excellent Oury Grips. bMHR.

Street Klein: excellent urban riding bicycle, super light frame, super light fork, well balanced components. Single speed Klein Rascal bMHR
44 x 16 . . . Horizontal dropouts yo!
Rebuilt Manitou II fork with coil springs, plus rubber top and bottom out bumpers. Super light, 40mm of travel is great on the street.
And look at the chainstay picture. The bike must have been left out in the sun for years before I hot-rodded it. The paint got rather faded. The chainstay had a transparent protector strip, which somehow accelerated the paint fade. The only spot of original color was under the white printed Klein logo. Ah, archaeology.
Rear end of the Street Klein showing, at bottom center of photo, logo burned into the paint from transparent chain stay protector and light erosion.
This single speed Klein conversion is great to ride in the city. Nimble. Those extra light Primo Comet tires enable acceleration. Kore platform pedals with short axle for weight saving and steel spikes allow Stomp and Go.
This Klein shares the city streets magnanimously. Cadillac car wash sometimes takes fire hydrant. bMHR
