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)

Does Bikesdirect.com every restock their Kilo TT's..?

I've been waiting months now to buy a black Kilo TT, I originally wanted the stripper version but I don't even care anymore.. But the original with the decals has been sold out for a while too. They should fix their website so it says out of stock when you go to pick the size, so you don't get a slap in the face when you go to checkout on PayPal and it says sold out. Anways, I'm kinda frustrated. Does anyone know when they will eventually be back in, or if they will be?

It might be better to contact them and ask this question. But I'm probably just talking crazy talk. :?

Absurd-talk even, it's like calling a bike shop to see they have a certain part in stock, you just don't do that.

Why do that when you can post your question in an internet forum where it will be read by thousands of people worldwide who don't know the answer?

Every time I email them I get the same short response, we don't know. I was hoping to get a response from someone that has been in the same situation so they can give me a brief estimation on how long I should have to wait...It's already been a few months.

I think the last time they restock was somewhere near at the end of August and before that it was like February or something near; it is possible that they restock every six months.

So you joined this forum just to ask a question when you already knew the answer that we're all a bunch of elitest smart asses. Priceless!

Whoooooaaaa! Hold on there, Mr. Threeposts. No need to call people names. These guys are not elitists. They are just better than you. So, do what I did while waiting for the Kilo TT to restock. Order the Dawes SST AL.

Wait, so you asked the company, they gave you an answer, and now you want to ask people who obviously have no idea about the stock of bikesdirect.com bikes?

deadsouls. - listen, man. Think about what you're doing. You came in here asking a question that no one in here could possibly know the answer to, regardless of their past patronage of BD. They restock when they restock, and you'd really need to ask them. If they're giving you the runaround, take your money elsewhere and buy a bike from a company that cares about their customers.

DON'T think you can come in and immediately start calling people names and insulting longtime members because you can't understand that you asked a question that doesn't really have an answer that can be found here.

I don't know isn't a good enough answer, that could mean five days, or five years. Whatever I'll just build my own bike I guess.

Did you not read my response? BD's customer service sucks 85% of the time.

bikes direct sucks anyways. They have good deals because they are willing to make less money per bike, and can afford it.

They are going to put bike shops out of business causing me to lose my job.

also, I could care less what kind of steel those cheap frames claim when they come with bent forks/dropouts from shipping.
