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)

The number of people who are riding Kilo TTs that don't fit them must be huge.

If you're referring to my bike it's actually a khs flite 100.

Got a good deal on the frame and cranks, and unfortunately its a hair to big. That was just just after i swapped out frames from my conversion i actually run it a little higher now. As well as have grips. haha

By "hair", you mean "two sizes" right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that bike looks like a 57cm and you probably ride a 53cm.
