What happened to your green kilo frame? Also, how was that Davis Alleycat. I can't imagine it would be very exciting (no hills, tons of bike paths).

I have to agree. The KHS is pretty damn ugly.

wtf with that brake on the KHS? Nothing like taking one hand off your bars and reaching towards your balls when confronted with an emergency stopping situation.

Heard somewhere that it is a Asian thing, having the break on the frame, also heard it might be a way of not getting fined for riding without a brake in some cities.

^^I'm signed up for the tour as are a few friends. lookin forward to it!

So I built my kilo as more of an all weather ride since I'm a pusssy with my felt in bad weather. I built it mostly from parts I already had from previous builds. I've had the blue panaracer forever so I put it on the back to kill it off quicker I gotta say, for a cheap frame, this is a super solid bike, and I enjoy riding it as much as my other bikes. My girl just got a 44cm cream frame. Should have it done soon...
