Klein Bikes was a bicycle company founded by Gary Klein that pioneered the use of large diameter aluminium alloy tubes for greater stiffness and lower weight. Klein produced his first bicycle frames while a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during the 1970s, and full production runs of frames began in the 1980s. In 1995 the company was purchased by the TREK Bicycle and the original Klein factory at Chehalis, Washington, closed in 2002 as production moved to the Trek headquarters at Waterloo, Winsconsin.
Team Gerolsteiner was a German based professional cycling team sponsored by the mineral water company Gerolsteiner. In 2002 they were sponsored by Klein as bike provider. According to M.Holczer (Team manager), his team used “95 percent” standard Quantum Pro bikes, made of US-made ZR 9000 aluminium alloy frame with carbon fibre seatstay and forks. They had strong riders on board like D.Rebellin, G.Faresin, G.Totschnig, F.Wegmann, U.Peschel and O.Pollack among others. They won 30 professional races that year.
