    I've had mine for about a month, and overall, I like the bike. The stock stem is a bit too long for me, and I plan on swapping it out with one from one of my other bikes until I can afford to buy another. The freewheel that came with it is a clunky creaking piece of ****, which is a bit of a disappointment, because my intent was to ride it SS. Can anyone recommend a replacement freewheel that won't have this issue? I was reading up on creaking freewheels, and it sounds like this isn't an uncommon problem. The White Industries Eno looks cool, but goddamn, it's almost a 100 bucks!

    One thing I noticed that was different from the Bikesdirect ad, is that the seat post clamp wasn't welded on the frame like they stated. Instead it has a no-name removable aluminum collar. I feel pretty indifferent about this; at least it's replaceable. Aside from the Sugino RD-2 cranks, and Alex Wheels, most of the other components are unbranded. They seem fine for the riding I'm doing, and I probably won't upgrade anything until they wear out or break (or are no longer seemingly fine to me - I can be impulsive).

    I love it too ! It's a Felt BeerNuts combination 15mm axle nut wrench and bottle opener.

    I regret to inform you that the Kilo WT has been downgraded from Brooks Pro saddle / VO Grand Cru seatpost to Charge Spoon saddle / Kalloy Uno seatpost. The former components have found their way onto my new chrome Soma Rush. IMHO, the Kilo WT still looks good and the Charge Spoon saddle is comfy.

    I had the same problem with a few different free wheels. I finally went with an ACS crossfire 18tooth and have been very very happy with it! Hope that helps. I love bike above! I think the guy who posted is named Gyeshoe or something along the lines of that.

    1. I've got ACS Crossfire freewheels on two of my bikes and like them a lot. They're smooth, quiet and durable.

    2. Thanks !

    3. You're close on his name. It's Gyeswho.
