Klein Adept Cross

Klein Adept Cross bat40a6

Really sweet build! Klein Adept Horizon Linear Fade Cyclocross.

I just found this from Retrobike-forum


Words by owner:

"I have just finished building this Klein frame with a mostly black component set. I am happy with the build now and the bike will see service in long country lane and xc rides. The ride is good, very stable and the drop bars work well with it, and in my opinion looks better than the flat bar MC1 (which was too long at 150mm and too high a rise for me anyway). This is the largest size Adept frame, the top tube length is almost 24", so pretty long, about the same length as a large size mtb.
