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)

Went through the thread, but didn't see an answer to this question: will the bike take a set of full fenders?

I just installed Panaracer T-SERV Messengers in 700x28C and they fit without issue. Looks like there is room to bigger but I'm no expert. Click on the picture for more pictures showing the clearances. Hope that helps.

yes. plenty of space for full fenders and 23's
you'll get massive toe overlap though

Just ride faster so you don't have to turn your wheel as much.

Just kidding. Overlap is something that takes practice getting used to, but when you're used to it, you're used to it.

The Mercier Kilo TT is the new Pista. Bikesdirect.com is minting money on these things.

It's sad that people are enjoying a stock bike with decent components?

if you call bearings that last for 3 months of heavy/regular riding "decent", then what do you call BAD?

also, the clips are horrible. they're made of plastic and are easily mashed. the straps don't stay tightened. the reflectors on the pedals bend if step on an upside down pedal with much pressure

the seat is uncomfortable, the bars feel horrible.

the frame is ****ing awesome. everything else needs to be replaced

Dude, it's a $350 bike.

You know what entry level road bikes cost?

Paying $350 for such a frame seems very expensive when I can get an IRO frame for cheaper...
