Or This*? http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/windsor/oxford.htm
*With the Oxford the plan would be to order the smaller 51cm size and flip the bars for a sporty bullhorn position (or swap in the real bullhorns from my other bike)
Cons for the Oxford:
-heavier (nonbutted?) frame tubing
-lower quality components
-Twistshifter (which I personally have problems gripping when I have sweaty hands)
-Only 3 speeds
Cons for the Kilo:
-really short wheelbase
-fenders and kickstand must be purchased separately (and no chainguard if I wanted to give that a try)
-more expensive (which will hurt when it eventually gets stolen)
-extra speeds = extra complexity
-49cm frame size could possibly be a little small and the next size up, 53cm, too big...competitive cyclist's fit calculator puts the Oxford's 51cm size smack dab in the middle of my range (I'm 5'7" w/ 29.5" inseam)
I'm also more "comfortable" with the idea of the Oxford because the configuration is more familiar to me, but I've never really owned a quality "normal" bike before (only folders and recumbents) and part of the reason I'm interested in buying one of these is to see what I might be missing (including drop bars which I've never owned).
What do you guys think?
