    You can get road bars on Craig's List dirt cheap and make your own.

    I made my first bull horn bars with some road bars and a hack saw.

    Same shoes on both bikes?

    You may be able to get equivalent results moving your cleats inward.

    I'm 6'1" and ride a 59cm C-C when I get a custom frame. I've ridden 23" and 58cm.
    I once ordered a super nice 24" (60cm) Raleigh Pro in mink blue and it just a bit too big.
    I never got used to it...

    The electronics donut in my photo link is the part under the cap that says G3 on it, but yes, that's what it looks like assembled.
    Those are 2 separate parts. Once you take off the triangular bit,...

    Then he shouldn't lie and tell people a bike with a track geo is going to be nice to ride on the road then.

    It's not true unless you're a masochist. Why do you think so many people get a fixed and...

    No, I'm sorry, but you don't know what the hall you're talking about.

    I have a steel track bike with similar 74/75 geometry very similar to the Kilo TT mentioned. Very short wheelbase.

    Do you have perfectly smooth roads where you live?

    The geometry on these frames is extremely harsh and they probably won't fit wide tires either.
    It's a track frame. It's gonna ride like a track...

    They don't have an individual calibration chart, the meter has an adjustment screw.

    It's easy enough to check. Hang a weight from a spare spoke (think bar bells and coat hangers here) and take a...

    I agree. I've ridden a few older tandems, including a very limited production Paramount, and they are flexy as all get out.

    I would not consider one except for the most casual riding and then you...

    I've ridden both and still have some in the garage.

    They are both nice looking but the 7800 is a bit sleeker and has the newer style barrel adjuster.

    Both do a great job stopping you, the 7800...

    If you really have narrow feet, no "medium" is going to run narrow enough for you to wear.

    It's the typical behavior here.

    Somebody has something that doesn't work right. Usually it's not completely broken, just skips, makes noise, or doesn't work consistently.

    Campag is right.

    It is ridiculous that Ils should have to go through this carp to fit a 167.5 DA 7600 crank.

    It is pretty much the gold standard of track/fixed gear crank sets.

    Same crank arm length

    I'd be doing some measuring.

    Is the BB 68mm wide like it's supposed to be?
    Is the chain line at 42.5 like it is supposed to be?

    If a car was coming up from behind and you stick your hand out, they MAY be nice and let you move in front of them, but I certainly wouldn't expect them to do so.

    And they're double ended. So you can use the opposite end with cable disconnects if you use those.
    Campy end fits better in the DaVincis.
