Eyeball something for me please?
I've got the itch. Based on a couple months of lurking the forums and the advice of members here, I picked up a '87 red/white Centurion Ironman that I absolutely love, the first bike I've owned and ridden since second grade. Thanks for a fun three months, bikeforums!
But I've got the itch, and the more I read about the fun and quasi-metaphysical connection with the road FG riders enjoy, the more I want to try it out for myself. Based on even more lurking, I gather there's a slight favor towards the Kilo TT's (haha the amount of stark "kilo tt" responses to "What should I buy..." threads in the subforum.....). Y'all talked me out of the garishly sick high-ten Retrospec bike I would've picked up, and I've found a used Kilo TT in my area I thought to go take a look at once I'm back home. Can you guys eyeball this for me before I go? The owner reports a "ding."
Any red flags? How big is too big? It's being offered for just under $200, which is a bit of a stretch for me but I wanted to see if I'm the kind of guy who can enjoy riding FG. Are there any tests you guys recommend I do once I can get my hands on this guy?
Thanks again, bikeforums!
