I need some help. Rush Hour vs. Kilo TT

Hello. Right now I'm riding a Windsor the Hour of BD. I'm looking to upgrade. My LBS said they'd sell me a Rush Hour frame, fork, and bottom bracket for 300. I figure, if I do that then I can just swap all the stuff over from my bike now and use it on that. But then if I get a Kilo, I'll have two bikes and can use one just as a beater bike, you know?

I'm very cheap, but this is all because I want to try a bike with less relaxed geometry than the Hour. I can't really find much on the Rush Hour, but I know the Kilo's geo is tighter than the Hour's.

Any suggestions?

i'd get the Rush Hour.

no doubt you'll think of upgrading the components on the frame so you'd end up with enough to put the old windsor back together. but seriously $300 get on that ****.

Get the RH. It's a no-brainer.

Rush Hour. I wouldn't even bother with swapping the stock headset, either. Get a Cane Creek S3 for $30 (or better, as budget allows).

Awesome. Well thank you. Originally, my LBS was selling the bike as a whole, but no one was buying it. I scored the Messenger crankset off of it for $100 a few months ago. No one has been buying any of the stuff there, so the owner parted out the bike.

But if you guys say 300 is a good deal, I'll follow your advice. Thank you.
