I was on the fence about getting a Kilo but I'm glad I did. So far it's been a great bang for my buck. The thing is pretty stiff and not to heavy with the Pistards(had DP18's but ditched them thankfully). Looking to upgrade to an elite seatpost and possibly omnium cranks in the near future. Hope you like it, please no trolls.

UPDATE
Went with SRAM S300s Couriers and couldn't be happier. The 48-17 ratio is nice up hills and can definitely bomb as well as skid. No longer need a brake now that I have my skids dialed in. My friends chipped in and got me a thomson elite setback for my bday and I'm very pleased with it. Bit the bullet and got nitto risers like everyone else but they're comfy, what can I say.

Wheels

How are the wheels in Stiffness? Durability, Hub Bearings, thoughts etc.

Thanks!
John

how are the wheels?

how are the wheels?

They're nice. Much lighter

They're nice. Much lighter than my weinnman dp18s and were only 250. Plus I I like the spoke pattern. They look almost like mavic ellipses minus the bladed spokes.

super clean

Nice job. I am building up a Kilo too, and might take your recommendation for those S300s. I'll look out for you around Seattle.

Ha! I was the one who bought

Ha! I was the one who bought the surly 18t from you. Nick right?

oh snap

That's right! I see you are pushing a bit bigger gear though... way to man up. I just got some Omniums and I'm trying to decide between 17 and 18, although the hills make Seattle awesome they can be a bitch

wait, set back seat post and short stem?

nice bike! i think the

nice bike! i think the silver hubs and crank really add to the look. hopefully i'll see you around seattle!

thanks!

thanks! originally i wanted to "murder out" my bike but i'm pretty happy at how it turned out.

murdered out always looks

murdered out always looks good, but silver and black is classy. nice bike, haven't seen it yet riding around. will be around next dead baby pub crawl if I don't see it before then

NICEE

I built one up for a friend. Real nice looking, stiff frame, but the 1" steerer tube is real annoying when it comes to variety with headsets. Omniums are a great choice for cranks, but if you're only doing city riding I would recommend SRAM S300 Courier's. Same BB that comes with Omnium, barely heavier, super stiff,comes in black, and is less than half the price.

I love them so much i put them on 2 of my builds.
