threadless [and of course, fork can be threaded for those that want to use an threaded headset]

Ok, so the TT and TT PRO are not the same frames?

The Kilo TT is listed on the site as:
Mercier 2009 Kilo TT
Fast, Simple, Classic - Now with 1.125" Threadless headset and stem

Ok, I do see the 26.8 post size.

I have not seen these yet
But Jeff says the Wheat is amazing

I have worked hard in the current environmemt of huge prices increases to keep the price low on these
and I hope everyone who gets one really loves it



And now I have the problem; that I want to build one up for my 14 year old to replace his Messenger
and there are so many Wheel choices



Hmmmm
Blue W/ Blue
White w/ Red
Wheat w/ Gold
what a problem!

judging by the popularity of the kilo tt, these will probably sell out rather quickly.

i do not know frame weight
jeff maybe able to weigh one

but all high grade steel frames at this level are about 4 lbs or so; i guess


last time we got kilo frames - they soild out 3 times faster than i thought they would
this time i got a lot more; but demand does seem up

so i can not even guess how long they will last
