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)

Pista frameset is not a windsor hour frameset.

Mercier Kilo TT = KHS Flite 100 = Spicer Standard Steel....same frame...

Fuji Track = Windsor The Hour...same frame

jaeone is right

bikesdirect lists different geo for the Windsor Hour than the Fuji Track, and different geo for the Kilo than the KHS flite 100. Not exactly sure which geo to go by if you're buying a BD bike, as BD tends to butcher their listings.

DO NOT bother with the Geo for the Kilo that is on the "Mercier" site. It is wrong. Use the geo from the KHS Flite 100 page for your Mercier Kilo TT frames.

BD has the top tube and ctc/ctt lengths correct on their site, but they still keep listing the frame as having a 1.125" threadless stem, when it is 1" threadless.
