Please don't laugh at me but......GinaRHCP

Okay, I need some help here. Can somebody please tell me anything and all they can about this particular road bike....... It's a used Klein and it says Stage Comp T on the frame. According to the bike shop guy, it's a steal at $400. According to him, the bike is worth $1,500 brand new because of all it has on it. I don't want to let on to him that I'm clueless so I thought I would get some info on my own. I understand about the importance of the bike fitting properly, but aside from that, I would like some details about this model. Can anybody help me? thank you thank you thank you! :)

Using I found a shop in Britain which listed a 1998 Klein Stage Comp T for 1300 pounds ($1800+ USD).

It does not appear on the current Klein website.

My suggestion would be to call another Klein dealer and ask if they can tell you anything about the model...

"I've heard rumors to the fact that Klein has discontinued their Stage model, but if you can find one, it is a worthy of consideration. A friend bought a Stage Comp T (T for triple chainring, but also available in a double). Beautiful aluminum frame with carbon fork - stiff, but a surprisingly good ride. Mix of Ultegra and 105 components. I forget the exact price, but I'm pretty sure it was in your range. Don't forget to consider a used bike. $1,500 spent in the used market could potentially get you a real top-end machine. Just be certain that you don't sacrifice fit in order to pick up a bargain."

Found that opinion on google also. just type in (klein stage comp t) and you will find other links. This was a page dated 1999
