Updated... new wheelset (which I'm loving) and you can also see my ghetto-fab front fender that I've been trying out this winter. It works about as well as it looks. I might put the Cetma back on for summer, or not.

Third photo is a detail shot of how to fit Planet Bike branded fenders to fit on a Kilo TT. A lot of people seemed to have trouble with this and just get the hipster race blades, but I figured I could probably make something better (Seattle has a lot of rain). I used a combo of a hacksaw and dremel to make my cuts and just the dremel to punch the holes; in retrospect I could have avoided using the hacksaw as the dremel was waay faster. Measure twice, cut once; I also advise the use of eye protection, the removal of your rear wheel when making any cuts, and zip-ties.

that bit about the wheelie, I've wondered if people actually do shit like that. Well done!


I think I ride that trail (waterfront-Ballard) all the time. Good to see that you can fit fenders on there- I have a Kilo in progress I was planning on putting fenders on and know about Seattle weather all too well.

Spot on

It's a little gem of a trail isn't it? Gives you a nice, diverse set of scenery I think.

might have to try it out

I'm down there more in the summer because the Locks are so nice
