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)

Question for KiloTT owners -

What is the correct measurement for the BottomBracket on the KiloTT?? All Bikes Direct says is "103mm or 108mm Powersline No Choice" I'm assuming this is referring to the spindle length of the BB - if so will the DuraAce Track BB which measures its spindle length at 109.5mm fit on the Kilo frame**********? I'm looking at picking one up and was curious about this measurement. I'm assuming spindle length is irrelevant to a BB fitting into the actual frame... Any help would be much appreciated - THANKS!

bottom bracket spindle length has nothing to do with the frame. as long as its threaded right it should work, you just have to make sure the cranks match the bb. so youd want to get the dura ace cranks to go with your bb. if not your chainline could be yucky.

naw man, looks good -- if the tape helps to protect it, go for it, good stuff. may decrease the appeal a little bit to potential bike thieves too, another plus. get out there and rep northern VA on it.
