    Bikes Direct *Mercier Kilo TT*Windsor The Hour*Motobecane Messenger Track*

    Bikes Direct seems to be a bit dubious on whether or not your bike will come to you threadless, or threaded.
    -Headset Sealed Bearing 1 inch or Threadless 1.125" (No Choice) (<--straight from the site)
    so, i was curious of everyone who's ordered one of these bikes(especially those of you in '08), how many obtained a threadless stem/headset and how many got a threaded ?

    thank you,

    Kilo TT, threaded. Ordered (and received) in early '07. April, I think?

    I know you are specifically asking those who bought in '08, but I couldn't resist.

    I bought a new/used one off Craigslist a few months ago and it was threaded, but I'm not sure when the person bought it. Bike was never ridden...

    Bought my 50cm Kilo a few months ago and it came threaded with no chance of being threadless.

    Maybe they say either/or and no choice because they still have threaded bikes in stock in some sizes and it's too much trouble for them to differentiate while they burn through the stock. I doubt there's much of the threaded remaining though.
