hello, i've just bought a Klein Adroit but it must be repainted, and i search the original stickers for the frame (1993).
If you have them or a model to rebuilt them...
Thanks a lot.

outch, is that the Adroit in question?

looks like all the carbon re-inforcements on the chain and seat stays and the fork crown were removed along with the paint. not good.

no, it was on the outside of seat & chain stays and the fork crown. the wall thickness is less in these areas and the carbon/boron was used to increase strength but not weight. it's the black stuff on the photos

do you think there's a risk to break the frame and the fork without it?

no idea but i would carefully check those areas after each ride for cracks.

just to give you an idea: the Attitude rigid fork in that size weighs 610grams and the Adroit fork 560grams so they took away quite a bit of material.
