Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Going to try and sound the least dickish... but if you are going to harp on something at least be educated in the topic or don't use specific words. The color balance is fine, he split toned it after it was color corrected. So unhipstering the color balance would either leave the highlights or the blacks off.

/endrant.

It's really ****ing hipster.

Mine should be here on monday! too bad its going to rain all week starting tuesday =( but besides that i got a 47 in raw. i went to the lbs and i assumed i would need a 52 or 54 but i was fitted to a 49. so i figured a 47 in a kilo would be more like a 50 which was the closest to my size.

Hi,

I am looking to purchase a kilo TT and was wondering what size I should be getting with a 34-34.5" inseam and a height of 5' 11.5. From the BD site it seems like a 57cm would be appropriate. Does anybody else have similar dimensions with some feedback on the feel of a 57cm?

Thanks

Thanks, so I took your sound advice and got the following measurements. Should I go with the 55cm?

I actually planned on going last Saturday coincidentally, but medical emergencies proved otherwise. If the weather comes through, which I doubt it will, I'll try to make it this Saturday and just use a rental. I will definitely be there next-next Saturday though, again, weather permitting.

rather excited.
