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)

dude people in this forum are pretty ruthless and, well; mean.

your bike and the kilo tt are different bikes built for different things, since you kind of tried to admit that, an if you ride that on the street then you probably shouldn't check for replies, they won't be very nice...

I almost never post on these types of threads and almost never in a negative fashion. But starting two threads to show off your bike that is nothing to write home about rubs me and certainly others wrong. Use the threads as they were intended, If you just want to show off go stand outside next to your turd and flex, but don't waste our time. Also your build embarrass me it's honestly one of the poorest executions of a build I've seen in a long time. I'm glad you like it though, so get of the internet and go ride.

I really really don't like this build. And I have some ugly builds.
