Just ordered a black 47cm Kilo TT last night for my girlfriend. Should be here in a week and then once it's built up a bit I'll take some pics.

I dont believe they are,kilo has a 107mm BB stock.The Origin8 cranks I have on order at my Lbs use a 103mm BB,I also ordered the BB,also branded by Origin8 but the mech. at my LBS told me it was made by Token.


Edit: after checking the BD site,its says 103mm BB or 108mm power spline BB,no choice. It might work.

ah, would this bottom bracket

https://cgi.ebay.com/SHIMANO-UN26-68-...713.m153.l1262

fit the frame and maintain the chain line when used with those cranks? is there a more better way to get 160 arms? 165?

that's a pretty basic low-end bb. not worth the asking price IMO. but 68mm shell would fit and a 110mm spindle might/should be okay if you put the chainring on the inside position of the spider.

So after looking at the BD site today, looks like they will start selling complete kilo's in orange.. I do like the frameset orange.. which im sure is the same.. Its very bright.. almost fluorescent in pics.

here's mine, took Zip's idea wit the 3m tape.

couldn't quite figure out how to maneuver the tape around the fork bends though (only had 3x9 sheets), so i skipped that.

stock otherwise besides the B17 Special...

if you have that lock you should lock up properly.

nice! for the fork, i cut long, triangular slivers to run the length of the fork. i almost ran out of tape in the process.
