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)

Strada Custom

Hey all,

Did a quick search and couldn't find anything regarding this. If I missed something, I apologize.

Has anyone had any experience with a custom Strada before?

Thanks a lot

Oh good, the world definitely needed another choose-your-color "custom fixie".

I was thinking more like is it decent enough for the price. I want a black kilo tt, but bikesdirect doesn't have my size and I'm getting tired of waiting. I was looking into the Fuji Feather but logos irk me on bikes, and I know the black Kilo TT "stripper" can be... well... stripped of logos.

$450 and the only information about their bikes is the color? Good luck.

Yea, that's why I was asking. Seems shady that there's no information.

I really wish the BAMF Assassin didn't have a crappy frame. Looks like I'll be waiting for the Kilo TT.

Why is the saddle pointed down in the diagram where you pick colors.

Seems like that would not be an ideal riding position... weird that they show it that way.

When the only specs listed are colors , that's a bad sign.

What size Kilo are you looking for? As I pointed out to someone in another thread yesterday, they seem to have most if not all sizes in stock right now

Yea, but unfortunately I'm looking for the matte black stripper edition. I ideally ride a 44, being a smaller guy.

Also, regarding the specs: seems really lame that they don't post them. I thought maybe I was just missing something, but I can't seem to find them during the "customization" process.
