I'm building my first fixed gear and started with the kilo frameset. I bought some Weinmann DP18's, a Cane Creek S2 headset and a pair of pedals/clips then my friend was nice enough to offer ordering some parts for me.
If you had access to a LBS discount...what kind of parts would you get/recommend for me?
I need everything except for the parts listed above so some guidance would be highly appreciated...
Granted, I wouldn't know the difference in performance/quality but I'd rather pay a little more now for good/high quality parts and not have to worry about upgrading or whatever later on.
I really need suggestions on bullhorns, cranksets, and cogs/lockrings.
Don't worry, I plan on doing something for my friend to show my gratitude <3
I'll walk you through it. Get some omniums for your cranks. I'm going to put these on a Kilo frameset myself, and they're great for the price if you don't mind external bb.
If you want to do bullhorns, make sure you have your stem picked out first; I personally like the Nitto RB-021 or 019, but these have drop that a lot of dudes don't like, for comfort reasons. The RB-018 is a good bullhorn with no drop. Remember, these are 26mm stem clamp only.
If you want to use a 31.8mm clamp, your options are limited with the dimension flat top tt bar, or the profile design air wing, which I like bc it has a slight 38mm drop. Or you can flop n chop.
