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)

No, he's not. Just young and not yet very knowledgeable about bikes, and without the brain/mouth filter that most of us acquire at some point in adulthood.

I do think TrickTrack.Org is a better site for his interests.

I can't give anyone who's 17 that much credit but yeah I considered pointing him to tricktrack the first time I read one of his posts.

Anyway, my car will be sold on saturday (fingers crossed) and im pretty sure a cream kilo is in my future. We shall see.

The Brooks was really comfy right out of the box, at least compared to the stock saddle. That thing was torture to ride on. Not sure if I've broken the Brooks in yet but its comfy as it is already.

Thanks! I actually love the RB021s. Yes, they look really mean but they also offer many different hand positions.

Does anybody here have a good picture of the Bikeisland Kilo TT deluxe frame in the dark green? The picture on the site is hard to differentiate from the black

Well its my girlfriend's bike and shes only 5ft with short legs. Even with a 44cm frame she can barely clear the top tube.

This is her first fixed gear, so shes still working her way up to foot a retention system...

It looks to be fully intact other than the fork?

I dare say you got lucky repair-wise

EDIT: Just read your "hit by a car" thread. ouchies

I see.. bummer. The Kilo TT Pro is a nice frame. Sadly it looks like it would be unsafe to ride

Hey guys,

Whats the difference between the stripper and the Pro? The problem is that as of this moment the pro does not have the color white. Guys why should I choose the Kilo compared to the IRO, Windsor, or Dawes.
