Date Reviewed: October 7, 2002

Strengths:    Offcourse the frame, Bontrager wheels and tyres

Weaknesses:    Almost everything, cheap brakes, a very bad crank(icon onyx), chain, braket, cassette...I hope that was it!


Bottom Line:   
Nice frame, but the parts are complete rubish! The salesman (wanker!)promised me a great bike without problems, well...after lots off repairs( a year later ) i hope he's right,or else i throw my bike through his window! Maybe my rating will be higher in the future.

Strengths:    undoubtedly the frame. I was involved in a road traffic accident and various parts of the bike were trashed....but the frame is STILL immaculate!

Weaknesses:    poor componenetry,especially the drive-train. the majority of bikes in this price bracket are better specced.

Bottom Line:   
A beautiful frame that,although light,will stand the odd knock or two ;D I've done 4000 miles of mainly off road riding on mine and it still rides/feels like new. Coupled with a forgiving seat-post this bike can be ridden every day...then raced at weekends !

Date Reviewed: May 16, 2001

Strengths:    Agile, 'fast', rigid and B-eautiful to look at. Geometry... my back likes this bike best, compaired to all others I've ridden.

Weaknesses:    I'll tell you when I find one... no seriously, the brakes are better than on any bike I've ridden before, but I'd like hydraulics to add some 'feeling', so Magura's are on my wishlist. And also, the front derailleur has to go, anything less than XT isn't worth your patience.

Bottom Line:   
This is the bike that I always dreamed of, a Klein... now that I have it, I simply don't see anything else that could make me jealous. I'll probably buy a full suspension one day, but this bike I'll keep forever. Klein know about frame-making, no doubt. Happy to have it.

Strengths:    Beeeaaauuuuutiful frame. Light, strong, responsive. Wheel set.

Weaknesses:    Rigid...Ouch my butt! Brake levers are abysmal. The local theives are lining up at my door.

Bottom Line:   
Ooh what a piece of art! I can't help just staring at this bike 'cos it's just sooooo gorgeous!
I bought a Rockhopper 20 days ago...and it got nicked...gutted...but the Klein was the one I really wanted, so I decided it was a message from the gods and got ma self some Attitude, especially as it's now 800 pounds sterling!
It is fab. Very rigid, accelerates like a rocket (as fast as the Kaitai...which is saying something), is fabulously built, and comes with a good component setup...apart from the brake levers which are like something you'd find on a kids bike! They shall soon be changed to something a little more befitting the bike!
I bought this bike as a triathlon training machine that I could also commute on and thrash over the hilly bits at the weekend...and for that it is perfect.
This is one of these purchases that you don't have to think about. If you have 800 quid to spend on a bike...get a Klein..they're the Ferrari of the bike world!(oh...and make sure it's VERY well insured!)
What else could I give it but 5 flamin' jalapenos?!!

Date Reviewed: September 16, 2000

Strengths:    This bike must be the best bike I have ever ridden. The frame lives up to every bit of its legendary reputation. Super plush Judy's have handled everything I've thrown at them. Superb Bonty wheel setup.

Weaknesses:    The fear you get when you ride and think that this beautiful frames gonna get chipped

Bottom Line:   
This bike is definately £1000 well spent. After looking at loads of bikes over a three month period from different manufacturers I chose the Klein and Im glad I did. The ride you get from the Attitude is superb with a great frame and a well balanced set of components. With having a perfect frame it allows you the opportunity to upgrade if neccessary. If your looking for a bike thats fun to ride, looks good and performs very well under pressure, then the Klein Attitude is for you.

Date Reviewed: July 12, 2000

Strengths:    It's gotta be said the thing people buy a Klein for is the frame, light, responsive and beautifully crafted.

Weaknesses:    For me none, I guess you could argue with the component set, and whether clipless pedals float your boat.

Bottom Line:   
The best XC bike I've ridden, it really is a great handling bike, and versatile too.

Rigid fork for 2000 Klein Attitude

Hi all, First post. I have a 2000 Klein Attitude with A RS Judy XC 80mm fork. Looking to replace the Judy with a rigid fork, but want to keep the v-brakes. Have been searching the 'net, but most forks are for tapered tubes and/or disc brakes. Anyone know what my options are? ps: The manual says ... Read More »

Fork upgrade on a 2000 klein attitude

Hi! I've got a 1999/2000 Klein Attitude with a Manitou SX fork. The fork seemed to work okay for me in 2000 when i was 145lb but i'm 170lb now and it seems like I bottom it out just by leaning on it. I've read they aren't making rebuild/spring kits for it anymore so I figured I'd upgrade to some ... Read More »

Chainring for 2000 Klien Attitude

I have a nice tax refund this year and I am upgrading the fork from my 2000 Klein Attitude (size Medium) from the OEM Manitou SX-E to something better. I have been told that year won't take to a 100mm very well, so I am going with a ... Read More »
