You remember any of the first Gary Klein mountain bikes. I still have and ride an original Klein Attitude Comp, vintage 1999. The frames on those bikes were an absolute work of art.



Gosh I forgot about Klein bikes, my first serious mountain bike was a Klein in like 1994, it was neon green, I think it was a pinnacle or a rascal.


Neon Green? Sure it wasn't the Adroit? Loved that one.


You very well my be right. I had about a 10 different mountain bikes over the years I raced.

Your bikes have no monetary value. You could donate them, someone would find a use for them. In some towns there are non profit cycling organizations that take inner city kids out on the trails.

Not sure I'd trust the results outta that website. I searched my old bike and found an excellent private party sale value of ~$175. I've seen several 1999-2000 Klein Attitude Comp stripped 'frames' go for $300-$400, and complete bikes in excellent condition go for as high as $1k.

Sometimes Bicycle Blue Book is good to find a ballpark starting value, but it's also often wildly inaccurate. bigdeal's is a typical example.

I'm keeping both of them.

And I doubt they "have no monetary value"
