Hey Alejandro, I am new to this forum as I am usually posting in the German MTB News forum. However, I could not resist opening an account here when I stumbled over this thread via the „I ride a Klein“ face book group. I started mountain biking in the Swiss Alps when I was a kid and participated in one of the first MTB marathons of its kind in 1993, the Grand Raid Crystalp in south western Switzerland. I was only 19 then and could obviously not afford to ride a Klein, but ever since then, the Gator Adroit was my dream bike. I envy you very much for owning this frame in such flawless original paint condition, AMAZING!
In 2003, I was finally able to buy a 2000 Adroit Pro MC3, which in fact after the take over by Trek was merely an Attitude but only named as the flag ship model. I am just now running it through its 2nd large upgrade programme, details of which you may find here (all in German though):
https://www.mtb-news.de/forum/t/klein-a ... t-16958139
Given my Klein being what the purists call a Youngtimer, I can take a bit more liberty in parts selection as far as time correctness goes, but you may still get some inspiration, although your parts line-up is truely impressive, except perhaps for the Tioga disk wheel :x I‘d rather go with the Tune wheelset.
Congrats to this phenomenal project!

Ohh great, like me. I was in World Championship in Grundig on 93 same year as I ride my first El Camino de Santiago.
Nice to meet you, you can send me a whstapp to xxxxxxxxx (as soon as I receive or soon elsewhere I will delete this my number). I was like you, dreaming with a Klein, I was not able to purchase back in 90's, just by 97-98 the Attitude Racer that Im about to give to a user (friend of mine)

This is an awesome build of a burgundy blue Adroit. Would match perfectly with my Quantum Pro:

Thanks to Klemer (Alex) user he gave me a few minutes ago his Ultralevers from Extralite, as I'm waiting for the green anodized ones (that will tyake about 5 weeks aprox to be manufactured).

Im waiting for the new ultralevers 2 (52gr vs 65gr)

If I am seeing this right, you plan to use V-brakes. I strongly hope you refrain from drilling the the cable outlet hole off such that you can install a v-brake bowden cable hard stop. This would ruin this beautiful frame.
I am very happy with my Extralite Ultralevers in combination with KCNC VB6 v-brakes on my MC3 Adroit. The KCNC VB6 levers, would be a bit lighter than the Ultralevers, but the Ultralevers are ergonomically way better than KCNC‘s.
