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)

A silver crankset would be effective too, and probably look better imo.

Thank you all...

think it is doable - I just ordered silver Sugino crank for my black/silver Langster and I guess I will do some swap...

Yours is the most "badass" or "gangsta". You don't want me to call your bike pretty.

Hope we are still lunch time brodate tomorrow.

Ordered a Kilo with my sqrlfriend today. It's tiny, 44cm in the raw colorway. It'll be mainly used for her school commutes and eventual summer time riding. Excited

Be prepared for a lot of toe overlap. Even on my 50cm it's very noticable.

I used to own a 50cm Kilo. And by the geometry chart, it has the shortest wheelbase of all the Kilo sizes. The 44cm actually has a wheelbase 7mm longer than the 50cm.

Sorry ... I almost missed.
I do not even know how to calculate .. Race Face stem - there was a bunch on sale on ebay for $12-15.. Seatpost generic silver ~$20.
The original idea was to have Wabi wheelset on it, but I sold one bike and bought another and it ended up with these wheels and tires... Original Alex Sub went away with the sale and these came with the purchase..

In your case Alex Sub can be suited with all white tires - not far from this.
White saddle is actually left from SS Pinarello... it is so comfy that I decided to buy white saddle from Nashbar for Pinarello, to make it good for sale and keep this one.
It is called Most .. you can find it on ebay for $40.
Oh... the white handles. I think they were $12... Nothing really special.
Currently I changed drops to bullhorns and changed to the shorter silver stem...

Would be awesome with rear black tire. Or maybe another red in the front...

X-post from picture thread.

Finally got around to making the Kilo TT commuter duty. Come at me rain. (It's actually filthy right now, but the color hides it)
