Hey, no need to proof anything. It is a fantastic bike. You deserve to be extremely proud. Also the choice of components is a testimony to your formidable taste.
If I‘d ever had the chance to buy a gator Adroit I might run the risk of violating a fundamental bike owners law: b = n - 1,
Where b is the ideal number of bikes to own and n is the number of bikes that would trigger one‘s spouse to divorce :mrgreen:


Thanks and I know the feeling. I am currently in the process of trying to buy another and I have a choice of an Moonrise Attitude or a Sunburst Adroit but I can't afford both of them right now.

Gotta be Moonrise every time.



Having looked at Moonrise. This is a tough one.Have one in Moon and one Sunburst :lol:

Total bike weights:

With Tioga and with rear seat tool kit : 8.2 Kg so without toolkit less than 98 KG (7.9Kg)

Without Tioga, all te lightest wheels, with toolkit, first balance: 6.9

Now I'm going to the mechanic, to weight balance, using the 2 balances, and without tool.

Target was sub 7kg, but I must confess that target was 6.7 KG !

Let see in a few minutes, I'll be back in about 1 hour or so.. I'm so happy
