    Vintage Klein Quantum with "strange holes"

    Bought this one for the parts, campagnolo croce d'aune. I wish I was into vintag Kleins as this one is the coolest I've seen: check out the cool cable routing for cadence/distance/odo stuff. Pressed in BB so I figure its a 88-89 plus has a person's name stamped in the drop-out area. Gonna list it in the For Sale section of C & V but thought it might spark some discussion among the Klein collectors:

    They're for internal cable routing. Good luck.

    The braz-on in pic 4 is probably for a CO2 cartridge holder.

    I tend to agree with your description in the FS section... I see how the speedo sensor on the rear works for speed, and the mount on the DT looks like it could easily hold a cadence sencor, seems to be about right for having the crank-arm magnet flash by. I think a CO2 bottle would be in the way down there.

    Of course, these days, not a lot of wireless cyclos would be able to xmit from the back wheel, but the cadence sensor would still work, if you could get it to mount on that peg. It also would make a nice light mount if you could find a small enough LED light.

    I had a heck of a time getting cable into the internal routing on a Klein. Finally had to position the bike in my workstand, bike was horizontal, with a slight tilt to get gravity to work for me. Took a while to figure it out. Hopefully there is a better way to do it. Kleins have a loyal following, you should do well on it..

    Vacuum cleaner, dental floss, and a rolling hitch work wonders in getting things started with internal routing.

    That bike has me all hot and bothered, especially here in my bikeless abode.
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    Not sure what it is worth. This one is a bit "odd" in a good way. Check the pics on for sale section later today

    Not unless you wanted to hide the CO2 behind the crank arm. It's for a cadence sensor, as the OP said.
