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)

Kilo TT run big?

I heard that the Kilo TT run big. If this is true, how big do they run? Also, what biking gloves do you recommend.

Thanks for the help,

Yup, they run 2-3cm bigger because they are measured C-C instead of the standard C-T.

That should be 2-3cm larger. There's a whole lot of info about this in the early pages of the Mercier Kilo TT Pictures thread. You could probably just read the first 10-20 pages (skip stuff you don't need right now at your own risk). Or you could just do a search.
