Easiest way to find difference from "real" Adroit and "attitude" Adroit -frames is around bottlecage bolts. Real Adroit have reinforcements around that area. See here:
Yep fully reinforced so i even more at peace.
hold on they stopped making boron back ends in 94/95 if not 94 and the adroit became just plain gradient tubing from what i can see in the brochure.
Also from what i can make out the only difference between an adroit and a attitude was components and that was for the year 95/96 then in 97 they dropped the attitude fuselage and only had the adroit fuselage which was koi, so in theory the 96 adroit and attitude was the same except for components and in 97 they used the left over frames which were fuselage and named them all adroit.
all fuselages were the same in 96 so in 97 they dropped the attitude and kept one one fuselage and called it an adroit.
well that is what i worked out from all the catalogues.
So after all that my tagging of my adroit born 96 created 97 is correct, it is an ADROIT. I love it when I'm right
Looks to me like you have 3x 1997 Adroits, all 3 can run v brakes, have the MC2 system and a seperate seat clamp etc...
Its true, most 1996 badged Adroits where in fact Attitude frames with Strata forks, not many had the "real" 2" downtube. MC2 Adroits only had boron carbon in the Strata forks, unlike MC1 Adroits which also had boron carbon wrapped round the rear stays.
My 6 pence worth
so this a 97 with boron reinforcements? do you have better pics of the bottle mounts?
