Ok for sometime now I've been reading up on possible fixed gear bikes to purchase. It's really difficult to choose a bike based on just looking at it's specs on the internet and not actually being able to try it in person to see if it's suitable.
For some of you you would pick the Kilo TT hands down no questions asked and I fully understand why.
It seems like for the price you get a great frame that is track traditional and with aggressive position and sweet look. It seems like because of this style of geometry that the Toe overlap is pretty big though. Some claim this isn't even an issue and some claim this is a HUGE issue. I don't know if it's an issue for me...I really don't know.
My personal ride right now is a Vintage Trek 400 road bike. This bike is meant to tour and has a very relaxed geometry. I bought the bike off someone for 35 bucks(a steal) and it's even a little big for me(my crouch sits on the top tube). But I love the bike and I think it's totally com(fortable and nice to ride and cruise around.
Now what intrigues me about the Dawes SST is that it has a more laxed geometry. I figure it would be similar to my personal road bike. Plus there is no Toe Overlap whatsoever. The few people that do have the Dawes seem to really enjoy it.
I don't wanna choose a bike just because it's more popular. But I also understand there must be a good reason for it to be so (kilo tt).
So help me out guys? if you have either bike give me your opinion. If you've tried both give me your opinion. If you're gonna be an *****hole about it...then don't give me your opinion. I'm trying to make a smart purchase and I don't wanna regret my decision.
Thanks a bunch!
