    Celestial Blue 50 cm Kilo TT Pictures

    this is a celestial blue kilo tt if any of you were thinking of getting this and wanted know what it looked like other than a bikes direct photo. the seats will go higher now that i'm more used to riding a track bike and brakes are gonna go on the front soon. i hated the straps for the pedals because i've never used straps, but i heard they are pretty good so i'll learn. i will get deep v rims when i save up some money, and the seat might be changed later.

    its my first fixed gear bike. i like it so far.

    Yeah but you'll probably find yourself upgrading the rear hub/wheel, I stripped mine just like everyone else within a few days.

    Flip the stem. Cut the steer tube down and remove all those spacers.

    Is the back wheel that cheesey?
    It's hard to believe something would fail within a few days.

    you probably didnt get your lockring tightened, mine came pretty loose so i got it tightened and havent had a problem with it since.

    Why do so many people say this? I've been riding on the stock wheelset nearly every day for over a month and haven't had one single problem.

    Based on how low your seat is, and how high your bars are with all those spacers and angled upwards, it appears that you bought the wrong size and this one doesn't fit you properly.

    Bah...I bought the right size and still have all those damn spacers because I've yet to replace that crappy stock stem and cut down my steerer.

    I've been riding mine for a few months now with no problems. Properly installing the cog and lockring go a long way.

    To me, this doesn't really look "celestial" blue (like Bianchi?) but turquoise or something

    bianchi's green isn't called "celestial," it's"celeste."
