    When switching to the proper ISO BB after using a JIS (and depending on whether or not you've overtightened the crap out of your crank arms), you may find that your arms slide a few mm too far down on the spindle, either causing clearance issues or a wonky chainline. You should have just done the right thing from the beginning.

    How about Miche Primato 110mm. It has adjustable cups and is pretty inexpensive.

    I take it Bikeisland is the only place I ca get a Kilo frame set? The 63cm frame is perfect for me but it looks like I can only get it as a complete New Kilo Pro or a Stripper. What a pain

    Believe me, I would have if I had the choice. I found a good deal on a KHS Flite 100 from when the 75s still came stock. I think the Shimano might have been the stock BB back then (because I certainly don't see them putting the $100 Sugino 75 BB on the bike as a stock part). Either way, I received the cranks with the Shimano BB and I just transferred the crankset over.

    The thing is I can ride the 60cm but I think I'll have huge saddle to bar drop and I'll need a real long stem. With the 63 I can put a positive rise stem and still get the reach I need. It will be similar to the frame I have now but not ugly and old and bleh

    hwd - alloy axle nuts aren't the best idea on a rear wheel.

    i know this isn't the "what don't you like about my bike" thread, but matched wheels/fenders, maybe a lower profile saddle, and changed bartape would make this soo much nicer looking (already looks great though )

    Anyone here have the Red Light Kilo Stripper?

    I got a lot of left over parts from my Kilo Pro that I'm going to stick on for my girlfriend. Maybe wanted to get some inspiration for how this build'll look!

    Those of you with quill stems, do you just have the older version of the Kilo, a different fork, or did you actually get your fork threaded?

    I'm super bummed about not being able to use one, but it seems kind of trivial to get a new fork just so I can use a stem purely for its aesthetic value. Boo-urns.

    Meh doesn't seem worth it for how expensive doing that would be. I guess my lofty dreams will just have to wait till later. At least now I know for what to aim next... lugged steal, threaded fork, quill stem.
