Nice!

I toy with the idea of going tubeless, but then you have to carry a spare tube in case of a flat on the trail... Or has someone come up with a easy/quick way to fix a flat tubeless?

Yessir.

Still getting used to the 29" wheel set after decades on 26". Feels like I'm riding up in the trees compared to my old bike... But the whole setup works really, really well.

I have a...

Think one of these is heading into my fleet of junk. Looks interesting to beat on for a bit and see how the 29" side of life feels to me. The overall setup gets good marks from a variety of magazines...

29 vs. 27.5... Good debate.

I'm keen on 27.5, but it seems like 29 is winning favor with the manufacturers.

There are plenty of differences between old & new bikes, but I'm not sure they would effect my ride enough to warrant the investment, that's where I'm headed with my cuteness.

And I don't recall...

My Klein doesn't have a long stem (maybe 2"), nor does its geometry differ much from any of the 26" hardtails out there today. Wheelbase is similar, head angle, etc. Nor is it really 'cute'. Just a...

Strong words... :)

That's more or less what I was thinking, but trying to swallow the price of a bike is... Ouch.

I had a glimmer of hope for rebuilding the Klein. However, like you note, even...
