1992 Adroit 'Gloss Black'

Pretty cool bikes if I say so myself. Especially the Adept hybrid was something really awesome.

here are my two from back in the day. They are only second to my beloved Trimble by the thickness of the thin Trimble paint :roll:

They are wonderful bikes to ride. just pure eye candy to look at.

John, the Tioga has always piqued my curiosity from a technical point of view. I used to think that the webbing was made of metal spoke material but I now understand that it's kevlar string so it can't be as heavy as I thought when I didn't know about the Kevlar, but what is the weight of it compared to a normal XC rear rim? Also, how do you find it rides in a light crosswind? (I'm assuming it gets ridden every now and then).

nice rides, indeed a good start!
like the team paint. this is getting on my wish list more and more...
shamus, i very much like the built with the tension disc/disc drive, kind of special on a klein. is it a rider? the sound of the disc is unbeatable :shock: the truing of the wheel may be another issue...

here is my 95 coral reef attitude:

Right I'll nail my colours to the mast - I've never been a fan of Kleins (I guess mainly based on the types of riders I saw on them, BITD), nor a fan of lurid colours, but this is truly nice - and cool ;-) Truly dreamy!

Honorable mention goes to utahdog2003's.

Still not a fan, nor would ever want or buy one (hope I'm not spoiling the vibe of this thread! I guess, though, this does go to show - the right bikes can turn somebody to the dark side...) but those two especially are really nice bikes - two thumbs up from me.
