    New bike!

    Hey guys, I've been in this forum for awhile and honestly I dont know if I will get any good advices, but I need help choosing a new bike.
    I just sold my current bike and I am planning to get a new one asap.
    I have $600~ saved up so far and I dont know what to get.
    I'd like to get a complete bike instead of building one but I am aware that you usually have to upgrade on most bikes anyways.


    I thought about getting Kilo TT Pro(cream) because I love the color, but yea... I dont want any frame color that stands out too much. I checked craigslist but fixed/ss arent so popular in the area i live in so fixed gears barely come up.

    Any advices would be appreciated. Thanks!

    P.S. I will be using the bike to commute around 5~10miles daily and 30~50mile rides on weekends.

    I got my Fuji Track Comp from City grounds for 699, 400 off! I love it, they might have one left!

    Also, how can a commute be 5-10 miles, that is a huge margin of error!

    Each way, so I guess it'd be 10~20 miles daily.
    And yea I used to live in OC before I moved and know that the folks at citygrounds are really nice. I might consider their 09 madison for 500..

    Shameless double post! I think I'll order the cream Kilo TT pro tonight. The deal is too good to pass up on.($400)

    I'll get some new pedals and saddles with the left over money. (Gr-9+MKS toe clips+MKS straps and B17?)

    Never had a brooks before.. are they comfortable?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    If you look around you can get a nice "Old School Blue" Madison for less than $400.00, as for the Brooks I didn't like the B-17, a bit to wide and I ended up chaffing the inside of my legs right next to my crotch! I like the Pro and the B-17 narrow, you'll just have to try one, I like them 'cause I feel they are prety ****ing comfy right out of the box, but thats just me. I hear they are even more comfy once broken in which takes a lot of miles!

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Haha alright! thanks guys! I'll definitely check out some saddles from my LBS.

    I dont know if the tires on the Tt Pro is any good but I think I'll also invest in some Vittoria Randonneur(white ones )

    Love the color scheme on this.
