Last week I bought a Klein Adept.
This was always a dream in the early 90's of me... And now finally I have one!
I had to drive for more then 1000 km, but it was defenitely worth it!
I bought it but was'nt sure about the frame messurement. The Adept was in a cellar and he could not find the framenumber. I was sure that it was a 19 inch, but you never know only seeing the biek on pictures. 1000km for nothing or....?

Well when I arrived and did some handshaking, we went to the cellar to get the bike out in the sunlight. The first thing I did was finding the framenumber. And yes it is a 19 inch :-)

19V0295004

I'm so happy. Fenders, spiders, dust, grease and more shit? No problem it is a 19 inch Adept, with Shimano M900 :-)

So after stripping all the extra parts and putting some parts on it just for the looks, this showed up:

Well now I have to clean every part. The Shimano M900 parts are almost undamaged and almost new! More pics after the cleaning! :-)

Greetz, Dirk
