    Everyone says to purchase a Kilo TT

    So I'm going to purchase my first fixie soon. Everyone tells me to go with the kilo tt. I won't be using it for committing, just casual fun rides of various distances. I want to be able to ride comfortable at any distance. I like the look of the Kilo WT, but not sure if a WT is my best choice. I'm new to this so idk what type of kilo would best fit my needs.

    A regular TT frame should fit just fine, unless you plan on going off-roading or your streets are particularly ****ty.

    Can I get beefier tires on a TT? The ones I've seen just seem real thin and I don't like how they look. seems like they'd damage easier.

    Get a Kilo WT. Or just ride road tires. I don't get why everyone is so scared of "thin/skinny" road tires.

    I don't like how my Nissan Versa looks, but it's reliable as hell and does a great job of being a car. Function over form.

    Anything in particular? The WT would be my choice -- fat tires rule for the crummy pavement in my area.

    P.S. You've got time to think about it -- BD doesn't have many of either in stock, unless you're tiny.

    They're not as bad as some people make them out to be, especially considering that most people who say bad things about them have never even seen one in real life.

    FWIW - everything I've ever had at The Cheesecake Factory has been absolutely delicious.

    Its always a bad sign when a restaurant has a menu that is over 20 pgs long and nothing is fresh and im not even a foodie.
