Honestly research a bit more on some real bike forums so you don't end up spending a bunch on a shit bike (as I did last year) and end up building a whole other bike after you learn a bit about bikes and realize you dont like yours as much as a bike you could've built up for less money.

i forgot to mention the model bianchi, it's a bianchi pista

langsters aren't good?

edit: btw, have any of you ever heard of tsunami? they any good? i think they just make frames... idk.

edit: damnnn, now i'm also considering a scrambler v3... irdk.

langsters are good bikes, and cheaper iirc (don't quote me on that) than the pista. if you like they way it looks then go with that.

^ what's the point in having two bikes that do exactly the same thing? i'd sooner slap gears on that nishiki than convert it

Really indecisive on what color Kilo TT I should get, lol. I'm thinking either purple or gold. I'm buying a 2nd fixed gear so I can ride with my girlfriend. Here's my current one. Windsor Hour...

I forgot they overlap. I have a friend who has one, maybe I'll try his out and see. The sizes run bigger, right? I have a 52cm Windsor Hour, should I get a 50cm Kilo TT?

most track bikes overlap because of the tight geometry but you get used to it and syncronise your movements after a while. plus the overlap only happens at slow speeds since thats the only time when you turn your front wheel far enough

That's because it is a TRACK bike..
Kilo is fully backed.

Awesome frame.

Put some drop bars (nitto) on and had to get a new brake lever cause my old one didnt fit. I wiped out today, i usually keep my hands on top of the bars but I wanted to try out the racing position. I was just in my own world then i notice a huge pot hole in front of me....it was huge. If i tried to go through or over it I would have fuked up my bike so I bailed, I think i flipped over, i don't really remember but the bike is fine and im fine....my arm hurts a bit though lol.





saw this today

Replaced the grips with bar tape. Looks and feels much better.
