    Amazingly sleek join between the headset and the fork - looks almost totally flush.
    Nice bike, though I'm not too sure about that paint scheme. Are we going back to the late eighties?

    In fact his frame is a limited one, and mass produced frames are painted in a single color.
    I like the gradation color scheme myself as I'm a fan of klein bikes :]

    jur: They sell the forks separately, but it is rather expensive at around $350.
    But they are worth the money as they has carbon steerer and are very light (only 390g)

    Nice weight - but the bloody pumpkin paintjob is not my cup of tea either.
    (I prefer Raxel's shiny silver beauty...)

    The combination of SRAM/Shimano/Campagnolo seems to violate certain laws of the universe too.

    That looks like the frame I would buy if it was available here... no suspension bits. Obviously it doesn't fold, but that would suit me just fine - a really solid frame to sprint away on.

    Nice!

    (more, more, more)

    Looks like frames would be about $1400 CDN for SI, and $2400 CDN for PKZ...
    I like the look of the SI though... I don't "get" the seatstay design ("Slant Design") on the PKZ.

    PS. What is special about the "Limited" models, apart from the paint jobs?
