Hi, brief intro, just got a Klein 1996 model, pretty much perfect except for a small ding on the TT, nothing serious. I haven't bought it as such yet, but it is from a friend and has a full 2007 Dura-Ace groupset on it and Aksium Race wheels and he is asking $1200 for it, which seems fair considering the groupset.
The frame is sweet, it rides really nice, but I find it a little too stretched out, I know the steerer is 1-1/16th, so does that mean I can put a 1-1/8th stem on it with a shim?
i hate the look of the stock stem and I see a lot of photos on your blog page of similar year bikes with different stems. So I want to get a shorter stem (Thomson preferably)
What can I do???
