yes i am selling 144 bcd chainring. I bought it for my Sugino mightys cranks but they turned out to be 151 bcd so now i have no use for that ring. Its an ORIGIN 8 machined to the same style as the old sugino and campy track rings.

Brand new, never mounted, very nice ring. Oh, its a 47T by the way.

Let me know, we can negotiate.

Are the Kilo TT's Measured Center to Top or Center to center? I'm 6'2" with a 35" inseam...I ride a road 63cm (C-t) which is very comfortable...I'm just afraid if it is center to top then the 60cm available on BD would be too small.

Thanks

Seriously? Have you measured it yourself? Only because Cyclesmercier and Bikeisland.com said C-T, but the KHS website which is the same frame says C-C, so has anyone put a tape measure to this frame? I'd just hate to get the frame and have it too small if the 60cm size is indeed C-T, or too big if the 63cm size is c-c

its prime, and its easy to find the cogs that provide the most common range of ratios, as opposed to much smaller or larger chainrings. im not interested though, thanks.

Question for you TT owners who bought the frameset...did you run 1" threaded or threadless? I'd like to go threaded, but don't necessarily want to pay for machining the threads. Suggestions?

1-1/8 threadless with a shim. easier to install, lighter and more stem options.

How do you run the 1-1/8 in a 1" headtube? Or, am I just dumb and all headtubes are the same diameter, but the fork "post" is what changes and so the headset diameter is just relative to the fork?

And what for a shim?

it's the steerer tube that's 1". A shim is a little metal thing 1/8" thick and about 1" tall you put on the steerer tube above the headset that allows you to put a 1-1/8" stem over it.

Home Depot? Cool. How is threading measured on a fork? What would I ask them? Just to continue the threading already on the top or what?

CC your bike looks SO good! It took me a long time (until I started wearing them) to realize that your bike is a samba (even though it says it on there)... Oh well, I think it's by far one of the nicest looking Kilos I've seen.

thanks i worked really hard to get it finished. i think the only thing left is to get a thomson post, and maybe change my straps. i love it where it is though and it's something i feel proud of... even though most people wouldn't like the idea of designing a bike around a particular shoe, and it could be truer to the samba concept(gumwall tires or brown saddle and grips, persay), i still like how it evolved and how it rides, looks, and feels.
