    Noobie with a dilemma.

    Done my research and have decided to purchase either the Hour or Kilo. The question is whether I should buy the Hour now, which will ship in mid-September, or wait until they re-stock the Kilo.

    Your choice. Both bikes are good, but people here seem to favor the Kilo a bit more. It all depends on how long you want to wait

    I received an email from BD that said the Kilo will be available early Sept-early Oct.

    I received the same email a few minutes ago. I guess I can wait for the Kilo since I won't be receiving the Hour until about that same time anyways. They say patience is a virtue, but I want mine now!

    kilo has fatter tubing and the fork has a crown. The geometry is tighter and more upright. no braze ons on the main triangle. Personally I think the kilo is a bit prettier but it all depends on what you want brotha

    Why no love for the Messenger? That bike seems to be the ugly duckling on this forum...Hour this...TT that...

    JesseDuncan:I just love how "cars will be forced to cross the double yellow lines on dangerous limited visibility roads".

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!
