Dude, why did you put Ultegra on that?

I like your style.

I have two (possibly dumb) questions related to the below image:

1) what happened to the pivot bolt on your front brake?

2) I'm not super familiar with this bike but I don't see a fork crown to lower headset/head tube junction like that too often. is the lower bearing exposed or is there a shield over it?




I think they called it the MC2 system? Basically a bb30 in your headtube with a collette to tighten your stem to the steerer.. Gary Klein is a genius...although...can't say I ever loved the "micro" rear-facing dropouts..

Beautiful bike though and perfect choices on the finishing kit!

Love it. It takes me back to when I first started riding and lusting after a Klein.

On early Q Pro models. The one in the op is an '04 or younger model.

Once Trek purchased Klein the Q Pro was simplified so had standard top bearing/cap assembly. The lower bearing was oversized (1 3/8"?) and bonded into lower ht. The Trek built Kleins also had threaded bb.

Wow

Absolutely beautiful. Kleins have been one of my favorites since I first laid eyes on my neighbor's MTB back in the early 90s. They never go out of style!

Freaking gorgeous.

The first bike that I've seen that I thought modern four-arm cranks look good on. Perhaps my memories of Klein's legacy of messing with standards makes it more okay here...
