Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

you can peel back the foil on the mercier to discover the frame is made of chocolate.

i think in one of the newer threads someone said 19lbs, but that's not exact. i ordered a frameset but don't have it yet and it won't have the stock components so i won't be able to measure it for you... maybe someone with a stock one could?


and just for future reference, when asking a question in an existing thread, it's advisable to ask it in one that is the most recent. this kiloTT thread is comparatively outdated.

It's Kosher too. Once you peel back the gelt wrapper, it's all good inside.

You don't even have to search, just scroll down on the main page and there's a whole page about them.

Ok. Even *I* am getting tired of Kilo TT threads, and I have one.

Mods, can we just sticky an "All About The Kilo TT" thread or something? Merge all the threads into one, and then if anyone asks another question about the Kilo TT we can point them there. And then drop them into a vat of boiling oil.
