Today i bought my "dream" bike, a 1995 Klein Adroit Nightstorm, chuffed to bits with her, the most stunnning bike i have ever seen. Will be changing all components in the near future so just concentrate on the frameset :wink:

I have to thank Lee for selling this to me, i know it was hard having owned her from new, and a special thanks to Spencer for making this possible :D

..you lucky git! I know Klein are 'most' famous for their fade paintjobs but I think the nightstorm one is the nicest looking IMHO. What are you plans - XTR M900?

btw - what are the tyres you have on their in the pictures?

Congrats on finally finding your Grail, James. And even better there's still some good riding weather for you to enjoy it with. What type of components are you going to go with?

Thanks for the coments guys, build will be XTR M900/910, with a touch of Cook Bros and Ringle 8)

Tyres are Panaracer Mach SK atm, condition really is as good as it looks, no dents, bubbling fading etc... has a chip and a scratch on the driveside Strata and some chain damage on the chainstay behind the chainrings.

Have stripped it already now, but Jeff, you will be pleased to know i took it for a spin beforehand and it rode like nothing else i have ever ridden :D
