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)

KHS Flite 100 OR Bianchi Pista

I've been looking though alot of reviews on both of these bikes and they seem to be equally good, I know bianchi has a good rep but i dont know about khs and I wanted to know if you've had experience with either of these I will use the bike as a training bike and as a bike to use with my friends. Thanks!

kilo tt. for future reference, questions like these are an epidemic on forums with the more than occasional person who has already bought a bike and still seeks opinions.

They are equally good. Neither the flite 100 or the pista will raise any 'red flags' so with that out of the way, find the best deal you can on whichever one offers the paint and options you like best.

The real question is if you will ever want a rear brake. If so kilo if not pista.
