    It's hasn't been built up yet, but I just got the SharkGrey TT Pro (chrome tips). I also ordered an Origin-8 red saddle (I'm not being too picky for now), and Michelin Krylion Carbon tires (red accents), along with a red chain and some red bar tape I'll get from the LBS. Whaddya guys think?

    Hmm, you don't want to skimp on on your saddle, I'd stay away from Origin 8. I think you could do away with the red chain also imo, go with a good silver chain to match the chrome on your TT.

    Other than that, welcome!

    Well I realize it may not be a great seat, but I've been riding for the past year on an ancient, jewel-crushing seat, so just from the amazon reviews I figured it was good enough for the next couple of months. I also feel like I don't want the bike to be top-heavy with red (there's a recent pic in another thread illustrating that), but I'll take that into consideration. Thanks!

    Just picked up a Kilo TT Pro.



    Sorry about the wrong side picture.

    I have the stock drops that I plan to put on, and probably some new straps/pedals from Scrod. I really don't like the white tires either lol. I guess the red chain can stay though. I'll post pictures when I'm done doing some work on it sometime next month

    Nice! Pictures of your bike? I probably won't mod mine too much, the TT Pro seems to come with a decent set of components. I also need to save for another road bike :\

    Also new to the forum after having lurked for weeks. Just got my Kilo Stripper frame in raw. Building it piece by piece basically and now am currently going crazy waiting to have the bottom bracket and headset put in. I'm having second thoughts on having gone with a threadless headset since I can't really find any 1" threadless road stems like BD sells on the complete builds. Any suggestions?

    You'll most likely need to use a 1 1/8" stem and a shim (which is no big deal).

    That sounds a lot better than pounding the headset out and switching to threaded. I'll do that.

    They're pretty awesome. I think if I dial in some things a bit more it'll be perfect. I was in such a hurry to get out the door though, I ****ed up my bar tape lol.

    hm.. that photo's really old but at the time yes, but i dont usually spend enough time going slow where i would get stuck because of toe overlap.
    also i'm clipless now since i got some chrome spd shoes for funsies so toe overlap is even less of an issue.
    latest rendition of toe clip + fender would be this:



    as you can see, my current fenders if i were to use them is just short enough to actually not contribute to more toe overlap.

    My SKS raceblades never seem to get much use... Easy to put on, but I have yet to find myself interested in a rain ride...
