I can feel the difference between Reynolds 853 (my bike) and Reynolds 520 (Kilo) in terms of stiffness, and my frame is lighter than a Kilo frame, but not even by that much. I've been riding a Kilo for the past couple of months while my TET (853) was out of commission, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The bottom line is that the Kilo is a nice frame, especially for the $170 cc got his for. Not to mention the fact that there were so many posts in the other Kilo thread that they had to start a new one... that should be a testament to how solid a bike the Kilo is.
zoncolan? i keep slipping forward out of the pocket and can't seem to get the angle right. i like it, it's supportive and comfy but only when you're on it right and i think the shape just doesn't keep me on it right.
what would you all suggest as a good square taper bb replacement for my kilo... also here she is... posting her in the new thread. she won't looks anything like this for long and is in fact already in pieces.

Right on...thanks! Ours are cheaper simply because we like to keep prices down (and the pile of dead baby pandas is getting out of control).
I'd recommend using something ISO over using a UN54. If you end up wanting to go with the 75 BB, let me know and I'll get one for you at a decent price. We don't keep them in stock but I can easily get them from our distributor. Personally, I'd rather use the Protype BB because it's cartridge.
