Here's my full sus rig. It's custom painted by an Australian graphic artist and I have to say, the finishing is immaculate. Autographed by Tinker Juarez recently. Mostly XTR M960 pieces with Rockshox SID Team, Thomson Elite and most importantly, Tune Speedneedle.

Total weight came up to 11.97kg. Enjoy!

I seriously don't know how this photobucket thing work here. Haven't had any problem in the past. But it's just so inconsistent now. Btw, these are a mixture of shots from the artist and myself. Enjoy... :twisted:

really cool bike to add to a collection. I bet its a bouncy ride though.

Absolutely immaculate! A blue Chris King would finish it off nicely.

Hands down the Night Storm paintjob is by far my favorite of all the Klein paint jobs. Your Mantra is sweet. Nice build.

I can't ride that, I'll break it...

Gorgeous paint job! Love the Panaracer tires too! I remember riding those way back in the day... :roll:

This would match well:

Is it me or should the head badge be mirrored? :oops:

Yeah, someone just pointed it out to me at Retrobikes. So I will have to buy a head badge to cover it for now and speak to the spray painter and see what can be done. Gosh, didn't expect this...

Very nice! I didn't think I would ever see an old Klein so pristine. Klein always did the best paint.

I do ride it around, but not off road as it would be utterly stupid of me to destroy this piece of art! :shock:

I am actually contemplating on the blue one or a silver one which will blend with the clouds. What do you think?
