Can anyone confirm that Klein is having production problems?MrDan

I went out on scouting trip to a couple LBS this
weekend. Nobody seems to have 2003 Kleins in stock.
Rumor is that they're having production problems
because of a factory move...? Anybody hear anything similar/different?
Yes they are having problems.dave11

We tried to place an order for 8-10 Qpro carbon teams about a month ago and they told us due to production delays, our order wouldn't go in until April and we wouldn't get bikes until May (or later). So we explored other options.

They will be hard to come by this year.

No details on what produciton problems were.
I assume if it was a factory move...MrDan

I heard it was a move to Wisconsin. IF so I've got to believe that not all the "talent" (welders in particular)moved with them. Getting new people trained and getting the quality up is probably killing them. But I'm just surmising ...

Thanks for the info.

Tip: If you really want one soon and know size, etc, try Project One.
