Kilo TT ; bikeisland

Are the 175 dollar Frame + Fork ever going to be available via their Ebay sellers account?

I am almost positive that they will have them. They had the frames earlier on in the year so it leads me to believe that they have some deal with bikesdirect.

Yes, it is actually just Bikes Direct with a different marquee. They're going to have the frames available in February.

I CAN'T WAIT.

Unless there is some other frame I should look into...any chance these framesets will come w/ a uncut steerer? I want to go threadless.

If it's anything like that last batch, it's just a 1" uncut steerer tube.

If they're smart and make enough of these frames, it should really such the wind out of IRO's sails, along with a few other boutique makers.

on an unrelated note, anyone know why bikeisland/ bikesdirect doesn't carry a 1 in carbon fork? seems like everyone would want one for their kilo tt.

Fair enough. The bike we like the most isn't necessarily the most popular.

I think we're all assuming it's $175, since that's what they sold it for last time. I don't see how they would expect to sell the frame for $250, when you could buy the complete bike for $100 more.
