I am looking for a more relaxed frame with no toe overlap, and so far i've only come across the SE Lager/Dawes SST and the IRO Mark V that fit the description in my search.

I do not in any way mean to come off snappy. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, your bikes are looking great.
Read again, I did answer your question: With clips, 57cm bikes have toe-overlap sometimes - this one does. For any road/track geometry 54cm or smaller toe-overlap is ALWAYS an issue with clips.

Thank you for being more specific, it was not clear to me the first time.

It is not true that any road/track geo frame 54cm and under with clips will always have toe overlap, as my Dawes SST in 54cm does not have any toe overlap, not even close. I also believe that the 53cm IRO Mark V does not have an overlap issue, asfaik. Unless you are considering these frames touring, hybrid, or mtb geo then i'd have to say that no, not all 54cm and smaller track/road frames have toe overlap.

My SSR is almost done!

I just got the carbon fork for it today but I'm going to take it to work tomorrow to cut the steerer tube (we have a very accurate gravity-feed saw which is perfect for cutting tubes) and I'm waiting on the Tufo gluing tape for my sew-up rims.

Pics soon!

Yes, I used a bar with a long reach (110m) so it's got good length. I am actually selling this bike.

It's 130mm BCD, 44T. So I guess that would make it compact. It's basically a road double but Truvativ/Bontrager modified it for track/fixed use. The external BB is nice and the installation is cake.

Very nice buildup there. I just sold mine tonight for $700.

I say the stickers should go!

I was thinking of getting rid of the stickers but if my riding buddies ask me what kind of frame it is what should I say!?

Waiting for mine as well. I have all the small parts, I just need the drivetrain and wheels.

What bike hanger is that?

Mine is one of them. Eventhough it said that the frames were expected to ship on 7/15 (I ordered it on the 16th).

I just called performance and had them give me my money back, I ordered mine on july 14th. I guess i'll just buy the drivetrain parts now and wait for bike island to get more kilo TT frames.

Yeah, I ordered mine at the beginning of the month with an extra 15% off. So, the frame/fork is < $200 shipped and after tax (I'm in Tx so I pay taxes for both Performance/Nashbar & Bikes Direct/Island). I'm going to keep the order unless something cheaper & better comes along (Moto Jury??).

I've also got a conversion ('87 Schwinn Tempo) I'm pretty happy with. I do need to tear it down and strip/repaint though and this bike is going to fill the void during that time. I also really want to try out the more aggressive (HA) geometry of the ssr. The Tempo has close to the same geometry as the Kilo TT in my size with a 74/73 degree SA/HA (57cm Kilo is 74/73.5), so it doesn't do much for me.

I thought about doing something similar, but I already have a bunch of parts specific to this frame. Plus, Performance shipped the fork and I've picked it up from the shop. I want the bike "right now", but I can wait since it's not my only bike, just my first fixed gear road bike. I was looking forward to having it soon.
