|Here is is and earlier than expected. 2004 Klein Aura X. Apparently there are 3 models, V (5), X (10) & XV (15). Same frame, different grade components. Ultegra derailers, 105 brakes & levers, 105 triple cranks, Bontrager Race wheels with Bontrager bars stem & seatpost. Finished off with a Silver Cloud paint job. Klein's paint and finish are fantastic, as usual. I did buzz around a little but I've only ridden Mountain Bikes so I really have nothing similar to compare it to. There are a few people waiting out in the hot tub so the bike will have to wait until tommorrow to have the reflectors removed & the seat height and angle tweeked. Reed|

|Humm... looks like the Q-Carbon Race from 2003, only upgrade seems to be the wheels. With the new Trek 2300 being a carbon-copy of the Q-Carbon, can't help but feel that there is very little exclusivity left in owning a Klein.|

|Thanks for bursting my bubble on my first road bike. Just kidding. I'm happy just the same.|

|That bike must replace the Q Carbon series because, from what you describe, it is basically the same bike as my Q Carbon Race.
Beautiful bike...I guess I'll see you here more that on MTBR.Com now huh?
