    Those are all pretty much completely different bikes. What are you going to be using the bike for?

    I ride a Kilo TT Pro.

    The question was: Do you have any disposition towards one of the bikes you mentioned?

    personally, I'd get the Timeline. It has mounts for fenders/racks, has a nice relaxed geometry, and has clearance for wide tires if you ever wanted to, has most of everything you could want.

    Howd you go from having trouble deciding between 3 300-400 dollar bikes, to being set on a 1000 dollar bike?

    My Windsor Timeline. I bought this used as a donor bike (wheels, crank, etc) but went a different way on that project, so now I have this. I realize the original poster bought a Bianchi, good for him, this thing is a tank. Fsa Carbon Seatpost, Turbo Saddle, Fsa Vision Stem, 3TTT bar, Dia Compe Levers; granted the 32c tires might add a pound or two, but I had a 2007 Fuji Track with pretty much the same component spec, a Brooks B17 and the exact same pedals; it weighed 20lbs (61cm). As you see it, Windsor Timeline = 26lbs, 9oz!
    Other than the weight, it doesn't ride too bad, kinda slow and dull, might be good if you drink too much. The stock gearing is too tall for a fat tire, fendered street bike (46 - 15), the graphics are ugly and impossible to remove, and the rack mounts are useless, 4" too far up the stay to fit a Blackburn rack.
    I have no attachment to this bike, other than my other bikes are victims of my constant tinkeritis and are unable to be ridden. I will get rid of this bike soon.
