    And I won't change my original post, because now it is very funny.

    I second johnprolly's nomination of saving your money.

    You already have a conversion, so you have time to wait to find a bike you like.

    And yes, I put the wrong tense of a word. I believe it was pointed out previously.

    Save a little and just get an IRO Mark V.

    or you can just get a huffy and call it a day.

    Buy an Angus instead of the Mark V. The Mark Vs are hard to fit...

    Personally, I would just wait for the next batch of Kilos. Probably another shipment on its way already.

    Save up your money and get something better than a Mark V even, if you can.

    I have a Kilo and already have plans on moving up to an IRO or Bare Knuckle. Stick to your conversion until you have enough cash for something way more better. and kilo sizes suck 53-57 jump is not cool at all.

    so everybody here agrees the mark v's are worth the extra 200 in comparison to the kilos?

    and thank you all for the advice

    Go with the Bareknuckle. An IRO frame is barely an upgrade from a Kilo TT frame.

    stupid



    ps.
    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) you’ve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) you’re in a bike race in which case you’re not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) you’re from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when it’s pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."

    Agreed. A bareknuckle is a solid mid-end steel frameset. Keep in mind you're going to be adding you own components, but if you started with the kilo you'd probably be upgrading a lot of stuff anyhow.
