    Color suggestions? I was thinking red accents, but I'm sure yet.

    I'm going with no on red. If you have to accent it with something I'd say match what it already there with the gold nipples, though I would do what CC says, it seems like the best course of action.

    i have 25's and I'm sure I might even be able to get 32's on there. I definitely pushing it with 25's if I want a front brake though.

    not exactly. kilo forks aren't known for their precision in sizing lol. My original fork was rubbing the brake so I had to get them to send me another. I haven't put on a front brake yet but I doub't it'll be very spacious. I know some people fit 28's up front with a front brake and 32 in the rear.

    Love this thread. I found a 55cm TT that I may buy for $200. It seems like an ideal frame for me since I really am not trying to impress people with my pricey bike, and just prefer to commute with nice speed and ride all over town for fun as well.

    A few noob questions...is it a PITA to take a wheel off to fit it in your car? I just need to be able to bring it back home.

    Also I don't really ride hunched over as much as straight and was thinking about some straight bars on it.. i haven't seen many in this thread...is that basically lame looking now? lol

    No, anything the size of a Honda civic or bigger would probably fit the bike no problem. Just take off the front and rear wheel, put them on the floor behind the seats so they don't move around too much and put the frame over some newspaper or something on the rear seat. that's how I do it when I need to move my bike for whatever reason.

    As for riding position. If you want a more up-right position, I think you could go with risers. If you don't really know you could always just level the bars with your seat and go from there.
