Very cool Adroit and an understated one also. I had a black gloss Adroit too some years ago but I like flashy colours more.

I'd change the wheel skewers to original XTR ones OR alternatively would change the seatpost QR to a silver Ringlé CamTwist.

Also the tyres are from post-Trek era, either Death Grips with period correct logos or Specialized tyres (like it probably has been equipped when new).

Top find all in all, a worthy addition to your nice collection! 8)

The fact that it is so simple colour wise does make it different and nice to look at. I suppose we've all become very, very used to seeing Kleins with wild paint jobs that this does just stand out!

We had a gloss black Rascal in our showroom back in the day in my size. About all I could afford back then was a Huffy or I would have picked it up. :(
