    Mercier Kilo TT fork and integrity ?s

    I guess I really wanna know if the Mercier Kilo TT fork will spin completely around or hit the frame?

    Also how well will the frame hold up to tricks and freestyle riding?

    Thanks guys.

    Is it worth getting one.

    Know any better at same or close price?

    It will not spin unless you get a smaller wheel. I dont know about tricks and all, but I never really felt safe messing around on mine. Riding fast... yes, hoppin around and tricks... not so much.

    That...... is VERY sketchy.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    haha..."All that work for someone that can't even barspin."

    probably shouldn't take that video seriously... just get a straight fork...

    Thanks guys. I think I've decided not to get one for the time being.
    Any opinions on a good freestyle fixed gear or road bike frame?

    Save me the "just get a bmx" talk.
    I like fixed gear.

    Oh and Greglast, your type of members are bringing down this forum.
    I find myself drifting to other forums more and more due to comments like the one you have made.
    Save this forum and report people like him.

    Get a 650c wheel and risers, and you can bar spin on the Kilo TT.
