    Lugged Mercier Kilo Team?

    Just noticed on the Bike Island site that there's a Mercier Kilo that's lugged al the way around. No, not just the crown on the fork, the whole frame. Has anyone had any experience with this frame? it's $100 more than the classic TT, but I'm thinking it might be a slight step up?

    There's been a lot of discussion about this, as seen here:

    I haven't compared the geo but to my eyes it looks like a Wabi.

    Wabi classic:

    I'd tell Bikes Direct to leave off the decals. It looks sexier that way.

    Hmmm, looks like I should have waited to get my kilo frame.

    Actually, I probably would have gone for this one:

    There is just something about built in chain tensioners that appeals to me.
