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)

base on statistics:

only worth it if you NEVER plan to change ANY of your stock parts.
otherwise, not worth it to get the pro since 87% of kilo users swap out 50%+ of the stock parts anyway~

Just the 2 "PRO" decals are worth the $120 alone.

The problem I have is that you are starting to get pretty close to a Moto team, which is infinitely better.

I have a stack of Pro decals I stole from Shimano's Interbike booth. You can have a set for $50.

it looks different/better IMO. other than that its just a kilo that comes in chrome. i was half joking, its more expensive and not worth it if your just trying to get rolling.
