    Need Help Buying a FG

    I've been searching for a FG on CL for around $300-$400 in the Chicago area. For reference, I'm 6' so I'm thinking 54-56 depending on the brand. I need your help/advice and recommendations.

    Mercier Kilo WT 56cm - $350

    Thanks!

    I've considered the kilo TT and Pure Fix Coolidge, but I would end up spending $450+. Also, I'd rather start with a used FG and consider an upgrade in the future.

    I have a Kilo Tt, and its a great bike. I would prefer it over a Pure Fix. If you want wider tires get the Kilo WT. It all depends under what conditions you're going to use it. Kilo TT is a great frame

    ^I was hoping today would be the day I got to suggest #KiloTT for the first time, but you beat me to it.

    I have a kilo th now and it's ok. Nothing fancy. I much prefer my long lost pake run runner over it though.
    We will see.
