Cheers dude... Trying my hardest to stay fairly retro ! Thinking of changing those V's for a set of those Onza HO's ??? Maybe..

The wheels Chris are Spinergy Spox !! Great looking carbon hubs and spokes !! You cant see the rear but its well trick! Radial spoked one side and crossed the other with the nipples at the hub end !! Amazingly light too!

Just stumbled across them whilst looking for a set of four spoke Spinergy's like my last Klein had !!

Looking good Delboy!

Are you going to be using all XTR, or chucking on some other kind of bling?

Hi Rich..

Using Mainly XTR at the mo... running gear, brakes and Ti cassette, but im gonna slowly keep upgrading as I go along!! You know! If something trick turns up on Ebay its just too damn hard to resist !! Just keeping it fairly simple for now just so I can get out and use the bugger !!!

Still after a pucker, ultra light carbon seatpost if anyones got one for grabs!! £££

Cheers guys

Sweet bike.
Always wondered what those forks are like to ride, do they shake your fillings out?

Hi Tranquility..

Still lucky enough to have all my own teeth at the mo so cant update you on rattling the fillings !!! However, Never could get to grips with any kind of suspension !! Tried it, and my Adroit has still got Mars Carbon front shockers which I hate !! Will change em when I find some original Burgundy/Blue stiff forks !! (Rocking horse poo !!)

Used to race Klein's years ago and just preferd that stiff ride !!

Its The Retro Way im afraid ! ! ! ! !
