Just to offer some encouragement, I'm a totally non-athletic rider, but commute on a single speed, 8 miles round trip. I also take it on recreational rides of up to maybe 25 miles or so. It's relatively flat in my area if I stay in town or use the rail-trails. For riding further afield, I have a geared bike, because the terrain in my region is endless rollers and they get old on a single speed. I've still got less than 100 bucks in my bike, mostly old parts that I threw together.

Between the Kilo TT and WT, I'd lean towards the WT due to preferring wider tires. My own preference is for an upright handlebar, but that's an individual choice.
