Gloss black. I kow it sounds boring but I think one of the best Kleins I've seen on RB was a black Adroit

Would need to be Gator fade for me, first Klein i ever seen in a mag (MBA in 92 i think ?) was a Gator Adroit and thought, it was the most amazing bike i'd seen, a short time later (still 92 i think) a local bike shop had a brand new Attitude in Gator (so the first Klein i seen in the flesh was Gator too) , the Klein and the colour looked even better than in pics.

So Gator for me but i've grown very fond of Dolomite in recent years.

Is this where your new Strata is going?

Good to know.

I have a 93 XS Adroit that will be converted to a full Tinker replica Adroit-EX!! I have all the big parts aside from the 3DV Ringle post and 3DV Ringle hubs.

@ Treacle: etoe.de Martin did it. And he did it very well. I got the frame, fork and MC2 back at the Klein meeting in Switserland. It is realley very good! But I know that John also do a great job, I had a Adroit Storm once from his hand...

@ mkozaczek: I love history, so will not tear apart a beautifull bike.
I'm very curious how the progress will go of your Thinker rebuild. I have something like that also in mind with an 20" Attitude... Not my size :-(
