Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Craigslist Find

Hey,

Found this Kilo TT on CL. Only thing I don't know is the size but it looks like a great bike to me, called owner and was told he will call me back at 4 with the measurements.

Looks like a 47 or 50cm. Pic angles not so great.

Ya compared to your kilo in your signature I agree that it looks around 50cm

If they make it, I would say 52.

I rode a older bike around that had about that stance, and it was a 52.

You have to be pretty short to fit that frame, unless you're going for a more leaned over position

I'm not too sure about the price though

Well I am a shorter rider, and what about the price are you unsure about?

The price is alright if it's in very good condition, considering a new Kilo is $360.

That's also not a quill stem, as the ad suggests. Just saying.

Good point that looks like a thread less stem, I am not sure if that would impact the pricing of the bike?

No, I'm just saying the owner doesn't know too much about bikes.

Older Kilos came with threaded forks and quill stems, but the one in the add is clearly a threadless setup.
