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)

Put together my buddy's Kilo WT for him. I'm seriously impressed with the overall quality of the bike.

I don't know what it is about it, but a black seatpost on a bike with otherwise silver components is sex.

Yeah, I don't get it either, it just seems to work. Maybe because the wheels are also black.

I wonder if it'll be too much when I put black tires on, and a black saddle.

I had it leveled out before but I found that angle to be more comfortable.

That is a really nice looking bike. Aside from the color/no decals, any reason why you traded the Pro for the Stripper?

No Kilo Pro's in my size so I ended up ordering a Windsor The Hour as my first fixed gear (I have a Giant TCX currently). I'd eventually like to get a Pro when they have my size and keep the WTH as a commuter bike.

Kilo Team from Oahu hehe. I absolutely loved this frame while I had it. Maybe I'll buy another one in the future and build it up with a threaded fork.
