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 Headset Question

I was wondering if its safe to chop the headset on my kilo? The head set that comes with the kilo is really tall. And i don't really like the look of all those spacers there.

You're referring to the steerer tube. Yes, you can cut it.
