"This bike is built up with the same stuff that Tinker used in 1993 in his team race bike. Even the chain is Sachs ATB! The best part is that the wheels are the original wheels of Tinker! I got them with a little help from Tinker himself! They even have the UCI inspection number 332 straight from the '93 Worlds! How cool is that!"

Tinker

The frame itself is quite odd beast - #OX11920206 is not a normal production number as the frame size (19" ?) is replaced with a letter O.
The unique thing is that it has double bottle cage installation points on the bottom of the downtube - I've never seen another Klein have holes like this. But you cannot install normal M4 bolts into them for the threads are smaller, maybe for M3 bolts...
Also the paintjob is quite rare because this one has the old Klein logos on it and the scheme is different to the Storms with '94 logos. As you can see the colors wary and the headtube is not "clouded". Carsten(Klein guru) says this one is a team-only paintjob that was never offered to the public. If any of you happen to have knowledge about these first Storm bikes, please share with me (us)..." words by proud Finnish owner of this bike!

    Great, fun site. This was the golden age of MTB! And Klein was king of the most desirable bikes for most riders during that time!
    Tinker's race photo brings back great memories --- I used to have a pair of the multi-color SIDI Challenger MTB shoes -- they were marketed as the hot-weather version of the blue Dominators. Great shoes -- had them repaired a couple times -- lasted over 15 years!
    Thanks again for the site!!!
