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)

Kilo TT from Bike Island question

Are the Kilo TTs from BikeIsland.com the same as the Mercier track frame?

If they're not, does anybody have any pictures a completed bike?

There are at least two giant threads with pics. And at least three threads a day like this one. Nobody looks first.

Differences: the frameset does not have logos, and does have a water bottle mount.

Here's a built-up kilo tt (not mine):

search isn't overrated

AHH! But in fact I did read every thread. There wasn't a part about anybody mentioning BikeIsland.
I just assumed they were all personal carpaint/powercoat/rattle can jobs.

That ad on bikeisland.com doesn't specify that it's the kilo TT frame or Mercier or anything to lead you to believe it's the same as the Mercier Kilo TT sold on bikesdirect.com. It just reads: "2008 Cro Mo Steel Old School Fixed Gear /Single Speed Frame Set"
