Recently i've bought a klein adept in a color i've not seen before blue mxed with purple. Not the crazie purple chameleon color.

The frame is a adept pro with carbon chainstay and carbon seatstay, and the gary klein signature is painted on the frame.

Does anyone know something about these kind of frame's

colour is maybe agean blue?
or carribian reef?

From the 2001 catalogue:
"We also offer the opportunity to personalise your top tube with your name, your team or club name. Serious Klein enthusiasts can include Gary Kleins signature..."

Since the 2002 catalogue offer the same painting stuff as from 2001, you'd assume they still do all ^ that as well.

I think i figure it out what it is,

Color is sea and sky not a cataloque color for the 2002 adept pro
The adept pro has the carbon stays at back and was only available as a frame. The man who ordered the bike, chose for the custom paint job and chose for the signature option.

Pretty rare bike bike with high end parts including a Look fournales fork.

Exited to restore it to perfection

Doesn't look like sea an sky, looks more one colour and not green, but hey pictures on the internet, don't make things clear.
Its funny though, I'd say the colour looks very close to the agean blue in the catalogue, but looks nothing like a bike that is apparently that colour out in the sun.
But I know one thing, the colour looks really nice, I like it a lot.

2002 catalogue lists the adept pro, carbon stays with fox f80 fork, xtr parts and bontager lite race wheels/seat/post/bar (p.12)

Aegean blue looks brighter than this one, and mine has also green in it.

I make some new pictures when the sun is shining
