Hi there,

Thought you all would like a couple of pics from my latest build, a '95 Adroit in burgundy with Strata and loads of shiny, polished aluminum american made parts as Ringlé, White Industries hubs, Grafton brakes, levers and crankset.
I just made a mix and match from all the parts i really liked. And yes indeed some modern stuff but as i do ride my Klein's i do need to replace my parts every now and then, but the Adroit is less ridden as my Attitude Nightstorm that i posted not too long ago :wink:

Compared to another MC1 Attitude i own the Adroit is a much more souple ride and is not so harsh even though the tubes and Strata are massive in my 18" size.

I did try to get the colors as much as i can because the burgundy color is without any sunshine very purple and dark but with a bit of sun it turns out really beautiful with very metallic and sparkly blue and some sort of dark red 8)

Here we go then with some pics

Very nice build Renzo! Lets ride together one day with our Kleins.
Maybe a Ringlé silver seatpost instead of the black Syncros?

Maybe there are some more Klein riders from the Netherlands, Belgium or anywhere else that want to do like a Klein meets Klein goes Dutch as the german one is a long drive for most of us?

Maybe a silver Ringlé would be nice but finding one in more then 400mm would not be an easy search :wink:
