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)

rather excited.
I have recently been contemplating on coming down to Hellyer as well. I would head down this Saturday, but the weather isn't looking too good. Hopefully I'll see you guys the following weekend

Kilo TT Pro worth the cash vs the standard TT?

I think it really depends on how much you're going to be swapping out from the get-go.

I bought the TT Pro, still using the cranks, ring, headset, BB, wheels after almost 4 years.

I swapped out everything else, though, multiple times. I will be swapping out the wheel setup here soon after I order from Scrod tomorrow.

Well, the Pro comes with slightly better parts, and I think it is, like, ~100$ more IIRC. If you are going to ride it into the ground, though, and like the chrome Stripper, why not just purchase the chrome Stripper?

That catlike helmet is the only catlike I want to wear. The other ones, with a million holes in them, looks disturbing like a giant wig or perm, or... beehive.
