Yeah, if you are fine working on your own bike then it is a good deal. Keep in mind that you will probably want to switch a few things out. My biggest worry on the Kilo would be the wheels.

Poor customer service? I emailed them the day after I got mine because the rear quick release had a scratch, they air mailed me 2 brand new ones free of charge.

Very happy with mine:

Unless they were one of those BD shills.

Oh well, it is Thursday. About time I responded to a "BikesDirect?" thread.

I think they're schmucks for stealing names of classics and putting them on generic Taiwan cookie cutter bikes
Probably nothing wrong with the bikes, same stuff everyone else sells, just different decals. They're still schmucks though

My Yiddish is not as good as it used to be; but it seems to me you are saying I am stupid or dimwitted.

People who know me might say some bad things about me; however none would say I am stupid.

It also appears that you are not to well informed with what the term 'steal' means.
