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)

Stuck between kilo tt and tt pro

I have some h plus son rims I want to put on it, and some mks pedals. And plan to buy seat and handle bars and a stem or a drop stem so i'll need a new headset right?, so what would be the better deal? probably a year down the line some cranks and a seat post I suppose

No. That makes no sense. If you plan on replacing the aforementioned components, there is no reason to get a pro. If you plan on just riding the bike stock without replacing anything, then you should get the pro.

But finding/buying hubs, seat post, spokes, tires, cranks ect in canada will come out to way more and longer to get everything together
