    You can find framesets on bikeisland.com.

    Email bikes direct about restock. Theyre good about answering.

    I always thought that too, but since early this week it looks like they may have restocked the TT pro because they have 63cm in all but the purple. I'm hoping they stick around till I can come up with cash, I have not seen a 63cm track frame go new before

    correction: not the pro, but the "special edition" chrome tipped one

    Hey all,

    I'm putting together parts for my size 50, kilo team (with soma threaded fork) build. I am looking at wheels/tires, and was thinking of going with H Plus Son TB-14's, and vittoria randonneurs. So, two questions:

    1. any issues with the tb14s fitting this frame because of the width of the wheels? (couldn't find anything on the forums about this - if there's an answer already posted to this somewhere, my apologies, please share the link)

    2. Should I stick with 25's front and back for the randos or could I go with 28 on the rear? (I've searched around the forums, and based on some older posts it seems that on some kilo's 28 fits, and on others it doesn't.)

    Thanks for any advice.

    I can't think of any reason why TB14s wouldn't work. As for tires, Kilos are well known for their unique variances from frame to frame. Yours might fit a 28, or it might not.

    Thanks seau grateau for confirming. I thought I should check before pulling the trigger. I'm going to go with 25's on both front and rear for now, and see how it goes. I may step up to 28 on the rear at a later point if I know it can manage.

    FWIW - I hate using a Rando in the front.

    Like seau said - Kilos have a lot of variance from one to another and Randos are tall. Your fork may not even clear a 25.

    humdinger. Good point Scrod. I should consider the 23 front, 25 rear.

    Wait, never mind. I just saw that you'll be using the Soma fork. You'll be all set.

    No such thing as a 23 Rando.

    Yup the Soma fork I got from you (and thanks for that Scrod!) The fork and and tange headset worked like a charm. It's a slow process of getting the build complete, but it's coming together sure enough.

    Still looking better than ever. There's nothing like wiping all the dirt off your bike after a great ride.

    with the new bullhorns. Man, never knew wrapping bullhorns could be so tricky compared to road drops. took me a couple of tries to get the tips just right.
