Very first Klein Aeolus??

I have been looking to sell my Klein Aeolus. I've recently discovered the breakdown of my serial number, which is K55U0196001. From what I can tell, the Aeolus came out in '96. It seems my frame is the first one assembled in '96, which would make it the very first Aeolus bike built. Am I missing anything? Does this sound right to anyone else? Any help would sure be appreciated! Also, does anyone know a good place or website to sell such a bike? And a reasonable price?

It's kinda neat if your serial number indicates the first Aeolus built in 1996, but that wouldn't make it the first one ever made since the Aeolus debuted in Klein's 1994 lineup. Yours almost certainly wouldn't be the first '96 model either, since production for a given model year typically starts during the second half of the previous calendar year. The first '96 Aeolus would've been built sometime in 1995.
