The fenders are planet bike cascadia, road size. Yes they did require a mod, first off I had to trim the front fender at the brake, it would rub otherwise.

It took quite a bit of time to adjust without anything rubbing. There is almost zero clearance on the kilo's for fenders.

About toe overlap, yes there is some, but for me it is pretty minimal. I am using clipless, not sure if that factors in to the overlap.

Not sure if I will keep the fenders on there, (I like the look more than anything I suppose, but I can reuse them for a future build) I am still getting my gearing adjusted for commuting since I am now full time commuting to work on the kilo. Any gearing change that is going to move your rear wheel in the dropout might effect the fender clearance. I found this out tonight, going from 39x15 when i took the pics, and now I am running 46x18.


Here is another kilo with fenders, belongs to Hoggster, it was posted in the commuting forum:

thanks for the info! i've been using a clip-on rear mountain bike style one, but it doesn't seem to offer enough coverage on my way to/from work always.

here's another photo to throw into the mix, though it doesn't show a fender:

Kilo built with Mavic Op's to LF Phils, Omniums, Turbo, rb021, suntour superbe pro 16 cog, Vintage Regina Track chain. It's nothing too fancy but it certainly can fly and I don't worry locking it up

I don't worry mainly because there are so many bikes that are super flashy around here that mine just blends in and looks like nothing special which I like! Nothing like a clean bike built up well IMO. Lifes just too short to worry about a bike...

what width are the stock chainrings on the kilo tt?

i put on a 1/8 cog and the chain looks like it vibrating when i spin the wheel.

if they're different do i have to change it?

mine came with a 3/32 chain and chainring, so no choice but to use a 3/32 cog in that scenario.

I'm 6 ft with a 57, but would be fine with a 55, possibly even better off. Inseam is a bit over 34" pressed against pubic bone. Stock stem was replaced wtih an angled 90 mm.
