question has been asked a million times in this thread. Kilo TT decals are under the clear coat. People with blank frames bought theirs of bikeisland.

Does anybody have any pictures of the Kilo TT with the stock threadless stem? Does it look the same as the one that's in the picture of the Kilo TT pro on the BD website?

EDIT: I took a look around the thread, and found some pics, my bad guys. dat's why it says newbie under mah name.

Does Bikeisland list the Kilo frames as a Kilo frame or is this actually it?

It's valid question. The new Merciers are obviously threadless but Bike Island shows threaded on their site. If you read the post before mine hes referring to Bike Island.

I'm just making sure there's no misinformation on Bike Island like there is on the BD site.
I would rather build up my Kilo without decals.

So...

They're Profile Design risers I got from my brother, and I've been very happy with them.

Anyone know where to find a brake set (caliper and lever) other than Bikeisland? I was hoping to find a black set.

i'm not sure what the bars are, they came off a mountain bike and were tall enough to balance out the drop stem (made the bike with spare parts, had to use what i could get).

and yes, it's a single speed with a freewheel, though i'm not sure of the gearing (48/16 i think). built it for groceries, bar nights, and days when i'm too lazy and want to coast down hills. i've got a basket to put on to...haven't gotten around to it yet
