I'm in need of a new ride (my conversion has served me well for 8 years but its time for a rehab) and it's basically between these two. I know they're not necessarily in the exact same class but hence the dilemma.
Pluses for the Kilo (non pro version, none up for order right now in my size) are obviously the cost, which is almost crazy at $350. Pluses for the Surly are that I can be more active in the build at the bike shop, and maybe bring some of the nicer components from my conversion to the build to bring cost down a little.
So my question to you knowledgeable Kilo/Steamroller riders is what are the biggest differentiation points to these framesets that you see (and, in turn, the stock complete build offered by both). I really dig that '09 Creamroller color but having an extra $350 for components on the Kilo is pretty appealing. But the Creamroller I could be riding tomorrow out the door of the bike shop! Decisions.
Any help/comments are awesome.
