Want to buy:

Older Klein Quantum frame+fork. Bonus if you have the painted, matching stem.

Size 55.

Any of the models will work but most interested in the "PRO". I have read that the Pro, II, and Race are all the same exact frame but just equipped with different level components but then also have heard that the welding might be different between the three. For example, the Pro had smoothed out, more finished welds as opposed to the Race which had the welds very visible and rough.

One thing that attracts me to this frame is Klein's awesome paint jobs. Therefore, I am looking for the Klein's in the more unique/fade schemes.

Some examples and paint porn below:

As someone who has put eleventy-billion miles on his Washington state built 2000 Quantum Race I can say that the welds on mine are as clean as the Quantum Pro that year.

The Pro does have the cool fork/stem/HS combo but it also limits your stem choices. The stock fork on my Race was a heavy carbon and steel model and the bike was noticeably lighter when I put the 1" full carbon Easton fork on it. It is a 57cm D/A bike that comes in around 17lbs.

The Klein paint is super cool and it would cost a pile to recreate with the debossed logos but the real reasons to get (or not get) a Klein would be the stiffness and geometry. It will most likely have steep angles 74 STA and HTA and a high bottom bracket. I love these things, other people may not.

Good luck on that Storm paint sheme.
I know on the Adroit it draws decent bucks.
Happy hunting.

A while ago I saw a storm road bike (may have been the MC3 version) in Leucadia bikes in Encinitas CA.

My friend Mark is selling this.
While not a Q-Pro, it's a Q-Race.
Price isn't bad either? San Jose/Milpitas, CA location.

I love Kleins. I've been waiting for a Quantum II or Quantum Pro 57 cm to pop up locally.

I have a 54 cm (56cm TT) Quantum Race frame that's too small for me. It's a deep dark blue color.

Thanks everyone for the finds and links.

Seems like a lot of Race's and not enough Pro's. :(

I really dig the whole matching setup on the Pro's. The frame, fork, and stem all color coordinated really speak to me.

Anyone have any info on the Quantum Z's?

Please be on the look out for a Pro!

Found this locally as well. This is a Trek/Wisconsin built one as far as I can tell (carbon seat stays).

I'll PM you pics of mine tomorrow.

EDIT: crap... sorry. It's a 58cm.

To the OP and any others interested, I have a very nice 2001 era Chehalis built Quantum Pro, 55 CM. It is in the Red/Orange fade with matching Aeros Carbon fork and has a Record 10 groupset. I can send or post pics later if folks are interested.

Glad to see the Klein love! I've got a 2002 Chehalis with new Ultegra 6600 on it, it's been sitting in the garage since 2007 since I got the DeSalvo and another Klein. Anyway, if anyone is in the ABQ, NM area and is interested in it, please PM me:

This seems to be a thread someone randomly revived the other day, but I noticed this looking through local CL if anyone is interested in one of these:
