    There should be about 4 million threads on either bike. Why not read up?
    Also, my brother ordered a Windsor hour because bikesdirect was out of his size on the kilo. You may want to check that first unless you are buying elsewhere.

    I understand there's a million, but I want to buy tonight. Both bikes are in stock..

    Just thought I would ask really quick.

    go for the kilo. Looks better, and tighter geometry. Unless you want more road geometry, in that case, get the Hour.

    Get the Hour because it has a cooler name.

    "I ride a Windsor the Hour"

    or

    "I ride a Mercier Kilo TT"

    Word.

    Should've done your homework before you asked your question. Impulse buys are a bad idea.

    not so much..

    Impulse buy only because I need the bike cheap, and fast.

    I've read up on both of these bikes, problem is I am indecisive. Both seem about even to me, honestly.

    I guess it's the frame and color that really have me torn.

    I have a kilo and my friend has the hour. Every time he sees my bike, he mentions how the welds are much cleaner than his hour.

    Bottom line, you really cant go wrong either way.

    Sounds like you don't "have the money."

    I was poking fun at your "I have the money" inclusion in the title to this thread. It's not like you've saved up an obscene amount of money to get a really nice something-or-other.

    "I have the money, now where can I get a ball-point pen?"

    depends on the frame of reference.
