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)

Thinking about buying another Kilo TT

Hi All,

I'm moving to Vienna, Austria in two weeks, and I'm looking to pick up a bike for getting around the neighborhood and possibly commuting to work.

I owned a Kilo TT a couple of years ago. I had it for about a month, and then I moved on top of a huge hill which pretty much ended my cycling. I sold the bike and have been bikeless since.

I rode the Kilo as a freewheel, and the only thing I remember not loving about it was how leaned over I had to be to ride the bike.

Is there a way to make the Kilo feel a little more upright? If not, what bikes do you guys recommend in that price that would be more upright?

I am buying my wife's 'Mercier Elle City' from bikesdirect.com, so if you have any recommendations from there that would be awesome.

Thanks,

Eric

Kilo WT

In your other thread, you were concerned with fitting wide tires, and racks. WT gets the job done.

Should I just add these questions to my original thread and delete this one?

You can't delete a thread (but I can).
