And I thought my quantum pro was going to be special! Man, you have done an incredible job with that build. My budget is pretty low (still in college) so I'm only shooting for somewhere around $2000/7kg. More of a budget-light build. It's a 1998 MC2 Jade Chameleon Q-Pro (59cm), Prima 199 bars, Sweetwings cranks with ct2 rings, da7700 derailleurs, brakes, sti, m2racer post, Spinergy Xaero for everyday use. eBay and craigslist have helped me save a lot off of msrp. Problem with my build is that I keep running out of money buying Klein frames ('90, '97, '05 attitudes, '97 pulse, and the quantum). This is my first road bike, I've never ridden a legitimate road bike before. Anyway, I don't mean to jack your thread. I do have a suggestion for you though. Some black Kronos water bottle bolts would look pimp with the rest of your setup.

But when there's water bottle, the 2 bolts are not seen

Anybody else remember the old Klein Catalog that was also a poster of a Klein holding up a Porsche? This Klein with that Porsche in that same pose would look sick!

Absolutely stunning. I love the style and the colour (and the Porsche pic :grin: )

I'd be tempted to swap out the bottle cage bolts with some Schmolke carbon ones but that's a minor point. I really, really like the graphics on the Rotundo bars. Superb! How did you get the graphics that colour? Stickers or airbrush?

Last thing, if you have a quiet word with AX, could they not sort you out with some orange AX stickers? 8)

Thank you. I'm thinking to completely remove the stickers on the seat ... are too big for my taste.

Love that ad.
