1989 Klein Pinnacle Elite
1989 Klein Pinnacle Elite
This is the oldest of my bikes, a 1989 Klein Pinnacle Elite.  It was previously owned by an "older gentleman who only rode it occasionally on cycle paths."  I didn't put much credibility into that statement but when removing it from the box I noticed the overall good condition for an eighteen year old bike and then noticed something in the box and thought, "What the...a kickstand!"  It's probably the only Klein known to have a kickstand.  It might well have been owned by the previously mentioned "older gentleman." 

This bike has an XT group with six-speed thumbies.  It does have Magura hydraulic brakes, which definitely have to go, but for now they function.  Kleins, IMHO, should have the cables routed internally and the tube the goes along the top tube is the hydraulic line for the brakes.  So new brakes and levers are on tap for this one.  The stem might be replaced with a Klein one piece stem/bar, we'll see.  Also nice to rack mounts as it was ridden about 130 miles along Lake Superior after hiking the Superior Hiking Trail.  Currently, the photos aren't so good, but new ones will be coming in the future.
