    That's what some people were saying on here. I guess I'll just have to deal with it. That Kilo Pro has been calling my name for the last month. Should I practice clips on a freewheel or go for it on the fixie cog?

    I'd just go straight to fixed with some sort of foot retention.

    Awesome, well it's official! At 7:00pm May 4th 2012 I put my order in for my first fixie. After many posts I'm certain I Made an awesome decision on getting a Kilo TT Pro in Sharkgrey! I CAN'T WAIT! What's Bikes Direct shipping speed like? Also, I've noticed that the track geo is kinda tight. what are my options on fenders? I live in Ohio and it's rainy season. This is gonna be my main bike now so I need splash protection, even though it will make such a beautiful bike look funky.

    I think most people get theirs in about a week or so. Kilo Fender selection is limited. You prettly much have to go with SKS Race Blades and it's a fairly tight fight. Rear, you can go with whatever you want.

    My old kilo with Race blades:


    My new one has better clearance due to a different fork:


    Congrats though, Shark Grey is an awesome color.

    Awesome bikes, if I wanted to change out my fork for a better clearance, what would be a good fork? Not that I'll be changing that sexy fork anytime soon.

    You wouldn't be able to use a Jaguar stem anyway - unless you have your fork threaded or buy a new one.

    Hmm ... it is strange but i do not have it .. (at least to the point of a concern) I even tried to invoke.
    It is 55cm and 9.5 shoe size.
    And it is not like I do not know what it is - I'm still recovering from the ugly fall in front of all parents taking my daughter from school..It was Fuji Team road bike - champion in overlapping.

    I was wondering, what have you guys heard/know about the Kilo Team lugged frameset? I went through the whole thread announcing the frameset from a while ago; any progress?

    For everyone that rides a Kilo TT in 55cm, how big are you?

    I'm looking for one, either 53 or 55, and right now im 5'10 with a 32.5 inch inseam. Which size do you think i should get? I really want the purple one, but right now they only have it in a 55

    I'm 5'10" with a 33ish inseam and my 53cm Kilo was a little too small. I do have long arms though.

    Also, does anyone know when BikesDirect will be receiving another shipment of Kilo's? I've seen that the Purple 53cm has been sold out for the past three or four weeks. I have tried emailing them and contacting them multiple times over facebook, but nothing has seemed to work. Thanks.
