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)

Mercier Kilo TT Build

Not a build thread yet until I add pictures... I just picked up my 55cm Kilo tt in Raw. Packaging was was perfect, everything went together extremely well and I am AMAZED at how good I fit on it. I am 6'-2" and the 55cm is perfect for me, I am very glad that they run big because now I don't have to look at an ugly headtube gap. I took it for a 8 mile cruise today for a test run and everything was amazing. I need to get used to the seat though, I love that it says Kilo tt on it. I will post some pictures of the stock beauty soon.

Plans for now:
Go to 48/15
New Pedals
New Tires
New Wheels
Pivotal Seat Maybe?

We really need a thread for each and every kilo tt, rather than just one thread for all of them.

^^ Sweet Kilo, didn't know they came in purple.

Now, let's talk about whether it will fit me and what gear ratio I should be using.
