LOW MILES – But Lots of scrapes

This Mantra has had light use never extreme ridden.  No Dents or dings -However she has several scrapes and scratches from bad car rack mounting (please see pictures) some of the scrapes can be filled in with a high gloss finger nail polish

Looking over the rest of the mantra and components it will be clear to you now that the light nimble, Mantra was made to perform. With Shimano Deore/ Icon Drive train.

Mantra turns heads everywhere she goes!!

While out for a test ride at Malibu’s famous Zuma Beach, (where they filmed many Bay Watch episodes) People would gather to check her out, I would get stopped and asked “what is that bike? Is it the new Klein model “they are shocked when I tell them its 15 years old!!!

Klein bikes always gather a lot of attention, particularly a shiny Jet Black Mantra .this color scheme is reminds me of the deep midnight Black paint jobs Lincoln and GM used in the early 1960’s on their Continental and Cadillac Eldorado Motoramma show cars.

This bike is known for its smooth ride and outrageous climbing capabilities. Many 5 chile reviews can be read at

Check this YouTube and see the mantra still performing hard in Shenzhen China

She is in  excellent working order just completed a tune up you will love riding your Ebony Black Mantra and your biking friends will be envious. She is ready to hit the trail. Or hang on the wall ~ you and your friends will be pleasantly surprised when you take your first ride and you leave them eating your dust

If you want one of the coolest full suspension MTB bike that you won’t meet on the trail or street – and has over the top performance this is it. Why spend $3000-$8000 on a new exotic imported bike that will devalue by ½ its value after you pass the front door , when you can buy America’s best period technology at an affordable price, an investment that will only go up in value.

What’s the scoop with Kleins

 Sure, they're the most beautiful bikes in the world to look at, with many models featuring their own special "debossed" graphics, smooth welds, specially-manipulated tubing called "gradient" that makes these the most perfect machines ever built in terms of delivering power to the real wheel and precise control to the front...

Want to see more of why nothing else compares to a Klein? Check out the "Name" label on the bike above, and the closeup .  That's not a's called "de-bossed paint."  They actually mask off the top coats so a different color is exposed, creating a beautiful appearance found on no other bike (at least none that I know of).  Trust me, these photos don't do it justice, but you get the idea.

Did you know that Klein frames were welded using a special patented process at super low freezing temperature apparently this imparts something magical to the ride.


Even the least-expensive Kleins feature tubing and technology found nowhere else, including "gradient" tubing which begins its life as Aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, inspected every single foot for imperfections (bicycle industry standard is every 6 feet), and specially formed, tapered and manipulated into something very special...your new bike frame! Check it out...look at the chainstays of any Klein and the differences will be obvious. Look at the headtube/downtube junction, and the manner in which they've created a special shape for the downtube to ensure a better joint


The differences are can see them, and better yet, you can feel them when you ride. And today, you can buy a superior Klein aluminum bike for pretty much ½ the cost as the inferior wannabes

I have taken The nimble Mantra out for a quick spin around the local (paved) roads here in the Malibu Mountain and our local beach bike path she tracks straight, shifts like a fine watch, & she shreds hills like a Gamma Goat

Just completed a tune up she is waiting for you to hit your favorite trail/ bike path, or hang her on the wall as Rolling Art!


Here are 2 questions we get often

How can you tell if a bike has LOW Miles or use?

Easy way is to look at the. Crank arms, brake, shift levers, and see if the original name are still there , grips ,saddle are good to check too , but the often get changed out by a owners personal preference.

When someone tell you this bike has had only 2 -3 short rides in its lifetime, it better not have any Chain Suck, major scuffs on the crank arms and brand name should still be clearly on the shifters/brake levers.

We go out of our way to acquire mint bicycles and pay top dollar for them.

If they are not mint, they usually end up as parts bikes, or donated to local charities.

What is the green stuff on the grips,& saddle ?

After new grips are installed we often  wrap them in a protective stretch wrap so they don’t get dirty from road testing or while performing service, so as to make sure they arrive at your door looking new.
