I'm really happy with the condition of the frame but there are a few nicks and scratches, am trying hard not to obsess over them..

one thing I've heard is that these late model Adroit frames are actually Attitude frames. They just called them Adroit for some reason ... can anyone confirm this??

I read that on here to. Worse things have happened in the world.One of the Finish Klein fans will know for certain. Don't worry it's a lovely frame. Nice and light too.
Enjoy it. And post pictures once complete

..I just PM'd Archangel with a picture, he seems quite knowledgeable.. I think if that is the case, I'll be on to Jonrock for a respray, some gator or something else pretty... and some Attitude decals, 'keep it real' as they say 8)

Sort of...starting in 1996 there were some Adroits that were basiclaly Attitude frames. The way to tell is the diameter of the downtube. "true" Adroits have 2" diameter downtubes, while the Attitude ones have 1-3/4" or so. That said, Adroit frames were still special in that they had Boron Carbon fibers in parts of the frame like the chain and seat stays. The Attitude never had that treatment.

Rad Stumpy 8), and lovely Adroit! I've just bought the same model/colour, built up with XTR. Mine has a couple of decent scratches, but I bought it to ride, so they don't bother me...too much :roll:.
