if you're looking for something to keep stock for a while, go mercier kilo tt
if you want something to swap parts out with immediately, go SE draft

the kilo has a lot of incompatible components like a 26.8mm seatpost and a 1" headset and stem

This was my last one I made from parts I had left from all the other fixed gear bikes I sold and took parts from. Not bad for what I had laying around.




I sold it to a friend and got a vintage De Bernardi, which now I'm selling to get another fixed gear lol

Built this up and love it. I changed my gear ratio from 46x17 up to 48x17 and it's a lot better. Faster averages and less spinning.

that's a nice bianchi dude
i just bought an older one off of CL a few weeks ago for 200 bucks

Built this up today. I've had the frame for almost 3 years, it rides so smooth.
Running 46x16 on it, and my legs aren't used to it.

Day 2 of having my Vigorelli and a car smashes into me.
Dented my downtube & seat tube. Fucked up my crank and pedals, and front wheel.

Damn sorry to hear that. I hate how people don't look out for cyclist, on the other hand I also hate when people on bikes disregard street laws. I hope that wasn't the case. Did you get their insurance?

That's really unfortunate mate, sorry to hear that. Had something like that happen similarly to me on my Pista Concept 2006 in Cyan a few months back and put a huge dent in my downtube.

it's a nice bike overall, but if you want fixed gear then buy a fixed gear.

don't waste time trying to swap parts and figure out the geometry.

Who's bout to hit up critical mass SD tonight?

Im about to pull the trigger on my first bike (fixed gear because thats what I'm use to using on the spinning machines at the gym) 

I'm looking at bikes direct and am thinking between the Dawes SST and Windsor Clockwork (Hour w/ Brakes)

Could anyone chime in on which to choose or if anyone knew of someone selling a 52cm frame in the NYC area for <$300.

Thanks!

sorry for the late response; either one is a good choice. I've been riding a windsor hour from bikes direct for a couple years without any problems.

Hi, been wanting to buy a bike for the longest time just to get around town and probably for school too and to save gas. Went on Bikesdirect saw the windsor the hour just waiting for the other sizes to come available. Also looked around craigslist saw this one.

http://images.craigslist.org/00f0f_1cdgSPmR4AW_600x450.jpg

he said its flip hub. Dont know what the means and said that its fixed gear on one side and has a free wheel on the other. Asking 200. what do you guys think?

I have a windsor the hour. Yeah that's what a flip hub is, but the bike won't come with a free wheel cog, just a fixed one unless he bought one for his bike. Honestly, alot of people are selling their windsors for like $100 around me. Bargain with the dude. But if you do go through with that, make sure the wheels are trued and the other typical checks
