Just FYI, some people have never seen a 1/8 chain ring...

These are pista chainrings made in France, I happen to use these on my Kilo and they work really well combined with Dura Ace 1/8 track cogs ...

Here are some ebay pics...

Saddles are butt specific but I've got a B-17 on my Kilo and it's very comfortable. YMMV.

Kinda hard to diagnose a noise with just that information. Details would be nice.

ok it's definitely a rattling type sound when i pedal, i think it's coming from the bb but i really have no idea, it's not the front wheel.

Looks real good. You might want to give some more slack to the cable/cable housing. Or is it just a bad angle?
