    Leaders tt is also like 3x longer than their seat tube
  2.  
    if you're a bit crazy about new things like me i'd be a little pissed since you just got this bike and scratched the fork already. that's probably a sticker but it looks a little unsightly
  3.  
    First hour I got the whole tt dirty from my pants rubbing, my chainstay all musty from installing the chain.
    The sticker looks nice in person, it looks like a big shit in photo

    hey btw how off is the sizing? i ride a 55 should i order a 55 or a 57? I'm 5 10 with a 32 inseam

    thanks in advance

    Well the frame itself looks small but once built up I thought it fit good, im 5 10 with about 32 inseam and it fits me great. if you have longer arms I would say 55 is good.

    Okay so its been 3 days riding all over the place with this, the frame is holding up great and super stiff. Its my first aluminum bike so those bumpy floors gives me a good rattle! I have received many complements riding around, someone in a car slowed down to even ask me where I got it haha

    how is toe overlap on this?
  6.  
    Compare to my Pista there is a little less overlap with the Visp but the Pista and their geo compared to Visp, Visp seems trackier my Pista can barspin lol

    My 2005 pista (57cm) could barspin with a 23c tire on. That was before the geometry change.

    Also, YOU'RE RIDING A TRACK BIKE, GET USED TO TOE OVERLAP.

    got to add I just finished the build on mine a few months ago, and loving it. Except for the seat post issue (easy fix with electrical tape) I can't fault it. Seems well build, looks ace and rides great.

    My 80s/possibly early 90s Bianchi Pista has no toe overlap. I'm pretty sure it's real track geometry, although I've never measured.

    So far since my first ride the bike is holding up and is very enjoyable and the seat post issue wasnt too much of a problem once I put a soda can shim

    my 08 Pista had overlap but my Kilo TT had more noticeable overlap than all other bikes I had
