    This setup was just too practical

    So I did this to my bike. Fun.

    What was your process for painting the wheels all black, anything special? They came out really well.

    Edit- Also, I recently tried to purchase a sharkgray TT pro, and BD said they had my size in stock, but when I went to check out.. "sold out" Is that normal for their website?

    that is normal for BD, you actually have to take it all the way to check out to see if they have it in stock. I also wanted the gray but it has been out of stock for a long while so I went with white.

    step i took for painting.

    after removing tires from the wheels and removing inside liners.

    1. wash the wheels with soap and water and let dry
    2. cover each spoke carefully with masking tape. the nipples are gold on the tt pro so taping carefully took a lot of time.
    3. sand the wheel thoroughly
    4. wash again with soap and water and let completely dry
    5. spray paint 4-5 layers waiting about 15 minutes in between layers. (spray evenly)
    6. let dry overnight
    7. remove your tape reinstall wheel

    if the paint comes out a little rough or some areas appear rough (like overspray) you can wet sand with fine grit sand paper to even it out before taking off the masking tape.
    I actually painted the rear wheel white at first but the black and white just looked cleaner to I went that route instead.

    I appreciate the guide, yours looks great. I found a link to a 2010 TT Pro and purchased the last one, the order seemed to go through.. but I'm still waiting on the emailed receipt. I'm hoping that it works out.

    Thanks bud

    E: I have my heart set out for a shark grey Kilo, but they're currently out of stock and I'm worried that BD won't restock before I go off to college. And since its my first bike since I was a kid, I want to be able get one a month before I leave so I can get a good feel and be comfortable riding around in a college campus. So, should I wait for the restock, or should I just go ahead and purchase the last white one instead? I feel the white one would make it more appealing to petty bike thieves as well.

    Any fixed gear appeals to petty bike thieves. White looks damn good in my opinion.

    Seems like they go out of stock pretty often. But it is a really nice color

    I'm taking photos of my Orange Pro I recently built up to post later but I"m wondering about front brake clearance. I had a brake but when I put it on it only covered about half the braking surface of my rim, obviously not going to work. The guy at my LBS said that he didn't have a brake that would fit and I probably wouldn't be able to find one. Has anyone else had this and what did you do about it?

    You're saying that the brake is actually too long? That seems really odd. On my kilo, the brake hits the rim when it is at the shortest setting. Also, the caliper was rubbing the top of the tire. If you can imagine that, then it would seem odd that yours would be too long because that would mean that your caliper is probably rubbing the tire. Posting a picture would probably help us to help you.

    Anyone use a shorter stem than the stock on their Kilo? I'm having trouble finding one with a 26mm clamp, or even a 25.4 that isn't around the same length as the stem it came with. The Cinelli ANT looked perfect but it's 31.8mm. I guess I could always just buy bars that would fit it.

    I probably should have specified that I was hoping to spend < 50 and ideally it would be black. But nonetheless, I appreciate it!

    Veloorange makes really nice shorter stems that would fit your needs as well.

    It looks like I may just need to go the shim route. The majority of the short ones I'm finding are 1-1/8.
