nice frame but I imagine the handling is shocking in that set up - what a waste. :roll:

still at least he has the standard forks/stem etc..... 8)

Could anyone point me at a Klein resource, something that details the differences between the bikes. For example, what is the difference between an Adroit and an Attitude of the same year?

I'm sure it will be embarassingly obvious when it's pointed out.

Wow, don't they get excited over there?!

So, to recap, the Adroit has fatter tubes than the Attitude, at least until '96 when some Attitudes may have been painted and badged as Adroits, and the Adroit has welded on cable entries while the Attitude has formed entries.

Thanks for the link.

Yeah the MTBR folk get pretty into it. Sometimes its pretty amusing. I never join in, though. They love their Kleins thats for sure.

The Adroit had carbon in parts of the frame/forks. So was a 1/2 lb lighter. My mid 93 Attuitde had the same tube diameter - 2'' down, 31.6 seat. But no carbon mix. Oh and the rear drop out was'nt drilled out. The Adroit is the better bike. F**k knows what that person has done to that. At least he has kept the standard fork/stem to re-fit.
