it's carbon fiber that was bonded to the Adroit frame and forks

I reckon it was voodoo.

It really makes shit all difference in my opinion, but remember what adding it to marketing blurb notched up on the saleability.

Adroit's ride stiffer than Attitudes so it does make a diference with the boron carbon in the stays and fork crown.

I'm glad this thread has started again, very interested in seeing the step by step processes.

Very nice!! I really hope that we can see the frame finished and built up. That would be great! :-)


....and I'm also happy that Klein's still make such controversy.....it adds to the pleasure of owning them!

:wink:
