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)

Kilo Frames

Anyone know how much the kilo team (lugged) frame weighs? And are those the correct geometry specs listed on their website that bikes direct/ bike island redirects you to?

Does anyone know how long the BBQ place up the road smokes their brisket? Do they do it in-house or at another location?

They don't, comes from the same pink slime plant as McD's nuggets.

Weighs about as much as a lugged 520 reynolds frame.

Mine is pretty light, and it is nice bike, but it is too flexy under my 220 Lb body

What the lads are suggesting is that this is something you can probably find our yourself. It also seems a bit daft to question whether the geometry specs are correct.

Buuuutttttt, the biggest issue of all, at least for me, is that when you are buying a cheap bike, getting all fluttery about how much the frame weighs is just silly. Lightweight frames cost. As someone told you, it weighs the same as a lugged Reynolds 520 frame. The only relevant information is that Reynolds 520 is the number Reynolds give to tubesets built to the purchaser's specifications - again, you could have found this out by googling Reynolds 520 and clicking on the link that goes to the Reynolds website (how do you think I know this?).

The questions you need to be asking are: is the KiloTT a good bike for the money (answered thousands of times on this forum so don't expect a straight answer if you do ask it), will it do the job I want (again, answered plenty of times so a search will probably answer this one) and will it fit (go to the stickies and see what they say about this).

And this is why you got the silly answers to what some perceived as a silly question. It's worth doing the Reynolds 520 search though, it'll start telling you something about the bike you're planning to buy.
