You might have gotten to 20 pages if you had added a disc to the rear.

Assuming you don't kill yourself from those poorly set up cantilevers, you should have a great time. Kleins are fun bikes :wink:

Your straddle cable is way too high. Interesting bike. I don't mean to be rude but I hear people complaining about cantilevers all the time but set up properly, they work pretty great so I often believe that there's a bunch of people that don't realize their brakes are not set up properly so they think it's the brakes themselves that are at fault. Anyhow, enjoy. I like the yellow.

great to see you out on your 1997 klein adroit this weekend its a real head turner, love the detail on the paint work and the fact that it wont be used where a picture should be hanging, another fine klein to your collection 8)

Great job on this build!

but as said before, the canti set up doesn't look that rideable. the rest of the bike (to me...) says, I'm a rider!
Rob's picture proves that too of course :wink:
