Hi All,

For sale I have my Medium burgundy blue linear fade MC2 Adroit.
Included also is the original Klein MC2 headset tool.
The bike is free from cracks, dents and any bubbling of paint.
There are a few marks in the paint as you can see in the photo's.
The BB bearings have also only just been changed, thanks Vinevo.
Also you can see in the pictures the bike is a proper Adroit bearing the "X" in the serial number for an Adroit.
Only thing of note, is a previous owner stripped the rear mech hanger thread.
For the V-Brakes there is a genuine Klein V-Brake adaptor installed, leaving the top tube in its original perfect condition.
They installed a steel insert saver, and is now stronger than original and can be seen in the pictures.
Whilst it would've been nice of the previous owner to mention it, it's not been an issue in all the miles I've done and can't see it becoming one.
Just mentioning it in the interest of full disclosure.
I'm looking for £1250 for this lovely bike collected, or £1275 posted in the UK.

Any questions I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards, Vincent

Thanks. It's date stamped December 1995, making it a 96 bike.

The colour and condition of this is truly amazing having seen it in the flesh. I also had a good look at the rear mech setup and it is very neat and solid so don't let that put you off in anyway. A very good price too in my opinion, if it was smaller it might not of made it out of my garage!

Thanks Ash, she really is a lovely bike.
Rides absolutely faultless.
Done 20 miles today and was a total pleasure.
Went with 2 friends with much newer and more expensive bikes.
Neither of their bikes as quick or as light as the Adroit.
A lot of bike for the money, you won't be disappointed.

Out of interest: does this frame have the 2inch downtube (bumps around the holes for the bottleholder screws)? But even it were technically 100% Attitude this is a nice set, great colour and priced fair. GLWTS

This was sold for £1200 delivered to Europe.
The buyers circumstances have now change and is no longer buying the bike.
Does anybody want the same deal before I relist it on ebay later in the week?

Thanks
