Klein with Backfire tri-fade paint job was one of the bikes I lusted after in my younger days. Now that I acquired a mechanically-sound Klein with crappy paint job, I decided to paint it Backfire with help from my buddy Ed. Rather than applying blocky KLEIN decals like the original, we (by that I mean Ed the painter) will attempt to paint reverse-fade "KLEIN" that runs along the top of the downtube. I spent a few hours on CAD and came up with this design. When the logo wraps around a round tube, it resembles some random tribal graphics and takes another glance to see the letters.
