My wife finally got Klein... and not just some, but Gator Adroit!

It had Rock Shox, but I changed it to Strata today.

Cranks will be those Toplines... before we find some nice 170mm...
Wheels I´m not sure... have some nice XTR also.

Front brake is problem.. there is no noodle for canti at that stem, need to find other stem or use v-brake :roll:

Camera is Canon EOS350.
