    I ended up buying a Schwinn Cutter for $150, how would you guys compare that to a Kilo? I think the Cutter is a nice smooth ride. Are the two similar in anyway? Different? Thanks alot!

    Sorry for the blurred photo, my phone is going on three years and the lens is scratched to **** now, I also might need to level out the bars, haven't rode it with the new stem on it but it seems like it could be a little off.

    I know the frame "sizes" are a little different on the Kilo since they measure C-C. But can anyone tell me why the Top Tubes are so much shorter than the C-T measurement of the seat tube? I'm looking to get my first bike, and from looking around at a lot of them, it seems like most of them have a TT at pretty much the same length as the seat tube.

    I'm looking at the 55 Kilo, which is 58cm C-T, but the top tube is only 56. What kind of affect would this have on riding comfort, position of the sadle, handle bars, etc?

    From taking my measurements, I get a recommended TT length of 58-60, but to get there on the Kilo I would have a 60-63 C-T which seems a little high to me.

    Hope that makes sense, and isn't too vague.

    C-T is a completely worthless measurement. Make sure that your own measurements are correct, and buy according to TT length.

    What does the calculator recommend for your stem length?

    You would probably be fine with either a 60cm or a 57cm. Do you have a bike right now that you could measure to gauge the correct size? I think that comfort levels on a previous bike are a much better indicator of size than some numbers plugged into a calculator.

    No, this will be my first bike, and there hasn't been much selection of FGSS bikes around where I live to try out.

    I ended up getting the 57 Kilo TT. It's 60cm C-T with a 57.5 TT

    I apologize for a figment suggestion but this is my first road style bicycle. I used the fitment calculator and was under the impression a 53 cm would fit well and not leave the saddle bottomed out. Just prior to ordering the Kilo Stripper I sent BD an email with the fitment calculator results and they recommended I purchase the 50 cm. If anyone can chime in with their opinion on fitment I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Sternal Notch: 56
    Total Body Height: 68

    Stem Length: 11.2 - 11.8
    BB-Saddle Position: 73.6 - 75.6
    Saddle-Handlebar: 52.0 - 52.6
    Saddle Setback: 4.7 - 5.1

    Seat tube range c-c: 54.7 - 55.2
    Seat tube range c-t: 56.3 - 56.8
    Top tube length: 53.6 - 54.0

    BB-Saddle Position: 72.8 - 74.8
    Saddle-Handlebar: 52.8 - 53.4
    Saddle Setback: 5.9 - 6.3


    The French Fit (cm)
    -------------------------------------------
    Seat tube range c-c: 56.4 - 56.9
    Seat tube range c-t: 58.0 - 58.5

    I would get the 53cm. Seems like it would fit almost perfectly

    I appreciate it! I was under the impression I should pay attention to the seat tube c-c and top tube length numbers in the fit guide, so I was concerned that they recommended the 50cm. The last thing I want is to have to deal with an exchange over improper fitment. Thanks!

    I sometimes wonder if BD likes to mess with people or if the tech support is outsourced. 50cm makes no sense whatsoever.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    Better to ask questions about the Kilo TT in a thread that's about the Kilo TT rather than half of the new posts on the front page be questions about the Kilo TT...Right?

    Sure, but if people would read any given page of this ****ing thread instead of asking "What size should I get?" followed by 10 responses saying to use a fit calculator, there would be a lot less repeat garbage.

    Also, there is not only a dedicated thread about bike fit but also an entire sub-forum.

    I moved the bike fit thread back onto the front page. Let's see what happens. Feel free to report bike fit posts and I will merge them into it.
