    Need help with Kilo tt Frame build-up

    Hey guys, i just found this kilo tt frame on CL for $50 and would like to know what would be the bare essentials for making it fixed gear ready?

    53cm Mercier Kilo TT Frame

    Im looking to spend about $250 in parts if thats possible? Again, sorta new here, so forgive any of my stupidness.

    Thats an excellent price if you get it and its not damaged. Assuming the bike is the right size for you and the stem is good length for you it shouldn't be too expensive depending on how you want your build to be or look. But I would say it will be about $400-500 in parts give or take. Buying complete bikes is always cheaper but if you get the frame w/ fork, headset, stem & seat post I think you'll be ahead of the game.
    You can get a lot of "budget" parts from nashbar.
    You'll need to find out what diameter the handlebar would need to be. $30.00
    crankset - Sugino RD-2 crankset | Retrogression - $110
    BB - Sugino 103mm bottom bracket | Retrogression - $40
    Brakes if you want them - BikeIsland.com - Bicycle Parts, Accessories and Clothing at Affordable Prices with Free Shipping - $45
    Wheels - Sun CR18 silver rims Fixed Gear Track Bike Wheelset 36 Hole Sun CR18 silver rims flip flop fixed gear Formula hubs wheelset [72774711864] - $119.00 Velomine.com : Worldwide Bicycle Shop, fixed gear track bike wheelsets campagnolo super record vintage $120
    Odds and Ends - chain, seat, pedals (straps & cages), cog, tools to build, grease & other stuff.

    And this is with not the highest quality parts so you can see it gets expensive quick.

    Good luck.

    Thank you! This seems do-able, although i also just came across a built Kilo TT for just $100! Now how does that deal sound?

    Beautiful black fixed gear bike
