    http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...er-722ts-frame (PM Scrod for this, he's overstocked in some sizes)

    That's a good start, there's also the Pake frame on there.

    Samzies. Find a different frame or go custom like EpicSchwinn suggests. A kilo frame is DEF not worth 200$.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    I don't think $200 is such an outrageous price for the frame if it's what you want. I spent about $150 on my Kilo frame/fork but still got the bike built with pretty nice parts for under $350.

    The only way you can get a decent frame for less than $200 is if you buy used, and some people don't like to buy used.

    No, but that's probably why it was cheap.

    This just makes me think I should buy a Bianchi Pista Dalmine. Seems like it should destroy the Kilo TT in every way, and the only upgrade I'd need right away would "need" right way would a set of $50 bullhorns. The MSRP is $1,000, so I should be able to get it for about $800-900.



    Then again, that completely defeats the purpose of getting a "cheap" secondary bike...

    I already have one of those. I'm looking for a cheap bike to use for errands and poor weather commuting. I'm also interested in owning a fixie, so I figured I'd combine the two into one bike.

    2012 Mercier Kilo Stripper Raw

    Optimized-DSCN2574.jpg

    Optimized-DSCN2576.jpg

    Optimized-DSCN2578.jpg

    Saddle: Origin-8 PRO UNO Synthetic Leather (Brown)
    Handlebars: Origin-8 Bullhorn Pursuit Style Handle Bars 26.0 x 42cm (Silver)
    Handlebar Tape: Deda Elementi Mistral Perforated Synthetic Leather (Brown)
    Brake Levers: Cane Creek 200 TT
    Wheels: Weinmann DP18 Silver Matte
    Hubs: Origin8 Formula (Flip-Flop)
    Freewheel: ACS 17T X 3/32 Crossfire *** Metal
    Lock: Kryptonite KryptoLok Series 2

    I will install a 17T cog with a Dura Ace lockring on the other side of the hub in the next couple of weeks. Everything else is stock.

    What makes everyone think that the tires are so awful? Is it because they wear out easily? I don't plan on skidding, so they are ok for now at least. Also, pedals have been mentioned as a "must" for upgrading. What are some good pedal options?

    First time poster, long time lurker! Thanks to all of you for your contributions to BF!

    At least the Kilo ones are alloy body, but the clips are still plastic. And they suck.

    I use MKS Sylvans paired with double straps, and quad gated clips. People also like GR9 pedals, but they only have one set of gates to thread the straps through. So if you use doubles with the GR9s the second strap sits above the screws where the clips are attached. Not really a big deal, but just something to think about. The flip tabs on the GR9s are larger and the platform of the pedal is easier on the sole of your shoe to my knowledge. The edge of my sylvans dig into the sole of my shoe, but again, not that big a deal I guess.
