    And how about this grade A piece over hear in the road forum? http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...wo-700c-wheels

    His other name was more fitting.
    He's obviously a troll - but I don't need to give a **** about stuff like that anymore.

    ha as you can tell, weather was a bit unfavorable for riding, but I took it out for a quick 10 miles before the snow set in and so far I like it. I need to get some things dialed in, and I will be switching out some parts from my old bike, but overall it pretty cool.

    So after a good 8 months to ride my TT Pro I'm in love. So much that I'm considering riding in the 4 inches of snow outside. Anyways I was looking to shed some weight of the bike. I feel like it could be lighter. Everything is stock except for some gr-9 with RG clips and steps. Any suggestions?
    I love riding and....Hey Look, Shiny!

    I know the wheelset would be one of the major improvements but I was thinking more about the components.

    Wheels are pretty important components, especially when looking to take some weight off your bike that actually matters.

    In all seriousness, upgrading the wheelset is probably the only change on a bike that you will instantly, and actually notice.

    Aside from a saddle and bartape change of course.

    Sweet. Now are the Wabi wheels the best bang for buck or are there any better ones out there?

    For that price, not really. They're really light, and they put up with abuse according to the handful of people on BF that have them.

    What's going on fellas. Newbie here. Hoping these links work..
    Anyway, I bought myself a Kilo TT as a gift to myself during the holidays.
    The guy I got it from was really cool, being that it's my first fixed gear bike, he's been really helpful.

    Original post to part wheelset and frame from him.

    Shot him a message for the complete bike, and it's all history from there.

    I took an obligatory instagram picture for karma.


    Another shot


    And a pretty sweet action shot from a ride the other day. (I think so, anyway)



    Have already ordered a Brooks Swift saddle for it, currently riding it with the saddle from my Raleigh.
    Looking at a Omnium crankset in the near future...

    Will update accordingly.

    Ohyeah, it's name is Pegasus.

    Wuuuuuuuuuut. New member with some sense. watch out.

    Looks good. What color are those wheels? can't tell. They look brown in some pics and gold in others. I'm thinking they're olive like certain phil wood hubs.

    Thanks man, they're Bronze B43's.
    Was actually thinking about getting the Olive Phil Wood hubs for aesthetic reasons.
    Also looking into wrapping my drops in stitched leather the same colour as the saddle.
    I've taken a liking to the Miche Supertype seatpost that I may be getting sometime soon.
    What gear ratio is everybody riding here? I'm at 46x15 at the moment.

    This is a pretty cool thread. A lot of the bikes on here are really nice. Glad I found it, I feel like I joined a secret society of people that ride Kilo TT's. Then again, I may be over-thinking the whole thing.

    As you can see, he removed the brake.

    stormtroopin - you may already know this but you should never use a brake on B43s. The sidewall isn't designed to withstand brake pad wear and the rim will eventually weaken.

    Spic 'n' span. Needed it real bad.

    Different saddle, the white toupe is on loan to Muffin Man, and this one is on loan from my caad build. I kinda like the black actually. After I get the white one back, I may order some of that white confetti speckled tape from scrod. That'll look real good I think.
