    Hi

    Can any one recommend a good Klein dealer in Colorado, preferably near Winter Park, Dillon, Aspen or
    Crested Butte. Need to change fork on a 99 Adroit and think it would be best done by some one who
    has worked a lot of Kleins and has adapters so we can get a Marzocchi on it.

    The Tune-Up in Gunnison is a Klein dealer ([email protected] - 970-641-0285). Good bunch of folks
    there. Be sure if you want them to do something specific like this you give them plenty of notice to
    have the right stuff in stock.

    Absolute Bikes ( http://www.absolutebikes.com/home.html ) in Salida is a Klein dealer. Also the best
    shop in terms of mechanics' expertise I've ever worked with.

    And you can see some really cool old bikes in there. They have a museum collection of their own, but
    for a little while longer will be hosting bikes from the Crested Butte Mountain Bike Hall of Fame
    (the HoF is moving into a new building as I understand it).

    (disclaimer: the folks at Absolute are friends of mine)

    Splendid, we need a Klein specialist, as Elisabeth´s bike has a funky integrated headset. She is a
    Klein-freak. http://user.tninet.se/~ipg289h/fu99/MTBruntUppsala/bilder/Borjeled3b.JPG Rides a "plum
    crazy" Quantum on road.

    Unfortunately, Kleins are a bit difficult to work with. She will need some kind of adapter bits to
    get a new fork on. Shops that cater to Klein-freaks will know precisely what it is about. I will
    mail Absolute bikes and inquire if they can do it.
