that is pretty sweet, i hadn't seen that.

in that case, get a higher rise, but shorter stem.

I was thinkin bout swapping the 90mm I have for an 80mm- but it would be the same rise.
My bike doesn't photograph well.

It looks better in person.

yeah I like it, a lot. I am working on building a fixie w/ a budget so I feel your pain. I know that these saddles are REALLY common, and some people have grown to hate them, but I think a brown, leather Brooks saddle would look SO good on that bike.

You should be able to run the same chain with only a 2t difference.
I did it between 14 and 16 when I was just starting out.

With the threadless system, technically the second one is superior because you have less actual material to put the bars in about the same spot. This means lighter and stiffer. The only bad thing is that you'd have to buy a different stem to move the bars just slightly up or down.

Hey guys, I'm trying to sell a 50cm Blue bikeisland Kilo TT frameset with an FSA Orbit X headset, Seatpost, and stem. PM me if you're interested.

I hate to spam this, but I need to get rid of it very soon, I'm moving.

I cannot wait for it to be here.

i decided to replace my bent fork with another kilo fork. im thinking about purchasing the kilo tt fork from bikeisland.com but they label it as threaded. can i still use this fork with my threadless setup that came stock with the bike? or will i have to go threaded and cut/rethread the new fork?

The fork I got was partially threaded.
You can finish threading it, or cut it down and run threadless.

I took some shots of my new positive-rise dimension stem. It does seem like I'm turning this bike into a comfortable commuter instead of an aggressive racing machine, but the bike feels a lot taller now -- being even more upright in traffic seems great. I do think it may mess up the lines of the bike a little, visually. I also tweaked the saddle angle a little bit after these shots. Additionally, I do think I could have gotten a 60cm initially instead of the 57cm. Next time!

Does anyone know the rake on the stock fork? I switched it out with a carbon fork (after an accident) and the wheelbase seems wider. The new fork is a Giant Aero Composite (that's all it says on it at least) but I can't find any info on that either. I think I preferred the feel of the steel fork (it's bent about 5 degrees though). Any suggestions or information would be awesome!

Nah, they have not received their new shipment, yet, or, at least, I do not think so.

They mostly have 47cm and 50cm in stock of the colors, with slate also having a 60cm option iirc.





Oh, I checked the site, and I guess they have some 60cm in champagne, now. Hmm...

the orange fender is a little much... otherwise it's cool.

zip... you must be a giant. rise stem looks good. flip it and put on track drops just for pictures to get people angry.
