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)

Why has no one brought up what his geometry preferences are? If I remember correctly, those Wabi's don't have track geo. If his preference leans toward track geo, the Kilo or something else with track geo would be his better choice. If whether a frame having road or track geometry doesn't matter, then I too say get the Wabi. Haha!

Good point but he should never consider buying that Kilo on CL, such a rip off.

Agreed. It's really ridiculous what some sellers on Craigslist will try to get away with. Straight preying on the uninformed.

Good thing I came here, then.

The Wabi looks amazing but comes out to like $800 when I add extras and shipping...gah. It might be a Kilo TT from BD after all. How much would it cost to have the bike assembled and sized by my LBS? (if you can't tell, I have no ****ing idea what I'm doing)

Other option is to get a Langster or something for cheap on Craigslist, then sell it and get the Wabi in a few months after I've saved up a bit.

I did my best to assemble the bike myself the first time around (just putting the handlebars on and the front wheel and some other stuff), and then iirc, paid my LBS about $15 to do a 'once-over' before I started using the bike.

Nagrom, are you planning on replacing the Kilo with another machine or just trying to sell it?

set it up today. Need to adjust the fit still. Not cutting the stem because I am waiting for my Nashbar carbon fork to arrive.

Does the 50cm Kilo TT have a horizontal top tube? I have a 47cm and the top tube is sloped.
