    2011 Kilo TT Pro comes out the day after my WT arrives

    My 08 Madison was stolen a month ago and I've been searching for replacements on BD. I settled on a Kilo WT, Emerald Green 62 cm, only because the 63cm Kilo TT Pro in Slate was sold out. I emailed BD asking about the 63cm Kilo's that were all gone, wish they could have given me a heads up! I love my WT so far, it's spec'd nearly the same.

    i'd rather have tire clearance than chromed tips, but that's just me.

    make sure the seatpost fits (nyuknyuknyuk) and then enjoy the hell out of it!

    yeah i'm not a fan of the new pro. make it 500 and full chrome with black formationface and then we'll talk

    actually no, for 500 it's going to have to be nicer tubing, undrilled for brakes, no eyelets or brazeons, and basically a different bike. if i needed a new bike tomorrow it wouldn't be a kilo.

    i wouldn't spend money on a bike unless i sold my current bikes or otherwise lost them.

    unless i had the money for this

    plus new saddle and post and cockpit. but that's seriously all you need to do to make this the most awesome mass production bike around imo.

    seriously has to be absolute pavement bliss. i'd probably punch a kitten in the face for the chance to ride it for a week.

    dees thrad, ees BD love thread, no?


    seriously, this gran premio... the super strada apex... ****ing hitting the nails on the head man.

    ^ i saw that on the email as well. steerer tube could be cut a bit, but cockpit looks fine to me besides the saddle.

    the stem and post look heavy and noodly. some nicer components would really help let the frame shine. and those bars don't look comfy to my hands. and yes, saddle looks awful.

    wicked: so do i. i was responding to someone who was considering buying a second kilo.

    vix: dude, you're killing me. that would be so hot. i would trade all my bikes and all of my clothes and one of my computers and my box spring to make that happen. instead i'm trying to get a job, like a sucker. i especially love how the zero100 component set matches the 6700 group nicely.

    Seriously, why is this under the BD commuter bike section? It took me awhile to find it
    And who would honestly commute with a $1500 bike daily?
    Not hating; if I had the money/ someone gave me this, I would seriously use it to commute.
