...yeah, it's a road bike, I know, but do any of you have experience w/ Klein Quantums? '91-'96, preferably. I'm betting they beat you up after a couple of hours but I also think they'd be wicked fast.
Especially if you're talking just a Quantum or a Quantum II
The Quantum Pros sometimes go for decent money...sometimes.
You should be able to pick up a nice Quantum complete for well under $500.
The Q-Pro is nowhere near as harsh as the Adroit/Attitude in my opinion. It also doesnt feel very fast to me. All the Cannondale 3.0 and 2.8 frames I've raced were much stiffer and felt much faster (although they all traveled at roughly the same speed).
Quantum and Quantum II are a big big difference, just like Rascal and Pulse. the Gradient tubes and adjusted geometry on the Quantum II make a nicer ride and a much lighter frame. the Quantum II is actually a Quantum Pro with normal 1" head tube and aluminum or carbon fork. but indeed, the Quantums and Quantum IIs go for way less than they are "worth" compared to the modern standard aluminum crap that sells so well.
