Strengths:    Price. Aluminum frame is stiff enough for power transfer while competing in tris; carbon fork is comfortable enough that I can ride it all day without being beat up.

Weaknesses:    If you're riding in a group, you might be the only one with 650 wheels. There's no sharing spare inner tubes!

Bottom Line:   
I picked up this bike while training for a Long Course triathlon in 2003. Once the fit was dialed in I was able to enjoy its responsive yet comfortable ride, even on some centuries. This bike makes me feel like I can keep riding all day! It is reliable, sturdy, and the aero position lets me cut through the wind. Very fast (for me).

Strengths:    Price,weight and fast

Weaknesses:    There are softer rides but at twice the price.

Bottom Line:   
Tried several Tri-Bikes... Quintana was best bang for the buck. I would of prefered the Caliente but the Kilo was just as good of a ride, but the Caliente was a softer ride. For a $800 difference I'll take the kilo until I can afford the next level. No other bike compare to the kilo in the same price range

Strengths:    light,fast,comfortable,cheap!!
Looks great, great paintjob and smooth welds

Weaknesses:    105/Tiagra components, hard seat

Bottom Line:   
Out of the box, this 47cm bike was 17 lbs.
Add pedals, and a new seat,(the one that comes with it is a board),water bottles, blowout bag, spair, and tools and Im up to 20 lbs. Great wheels for the price. 650c volicity deep V's. Looks like Volicity hubs, but no logo so cant be sure. entry level arrowbars with end shifters. The bike can climb! and is suprisingly smooth, thanks to the carbon forks. Could have spent alot more and been less pleased.

Winter Commuter - BD Kilo Wt vs Fantom Cross Uno

I've been looking around for the fabled "$5 garage sale bike" to turn into a winter commuter. I had thought my criteria were pretty reasonable (room for studded tires, fenders, frame fits me reasonably well, brakes I can rip off an replace with something respectable). Unfortunately five months of lo ... Read More »

Kilo TT Belt Drive Conversion

Thought I'd share this as I've seen a couple of folks discussing/asking about the possibility of making a fixie belt-driven bike. The answer is yes! It took a bit of time, money, patience, and ALOT of research. In the end, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. A quick bit of background... I r ... Read More »

Quintana Roo Kilo

I found a "Quintana Roo Kilo Private Reserve" at my LBS on consignment for $350. I realize this is a triathlon bike and I don't plan on riding in any triathlons anytime soon, but to me it seems if someone is willing to ride this type bike for 112 miles in an Ironman triathlon, it cannot be too bad ...

Having probs finding a 1 inch threadless stem replacement for kilo TT

Trying to adjust the fit of my bike. I switched from drops to bullhorns and I wanna bring in a bit the reach. Looking for a new stem but they all appear to be 1 and 1/8th rather than just 1. What brands can I look for that are 1 inch threadless that have some rise on them and are about 90mm.Read More »

Can you race a Mercier Kilo TT Pro on the track?

Hey all, I'm looking to get a commuter that I can take on the track once in a while. I know the Mercier has a track geometry, but is it actually worthy of the track? I'd like to keep the bike for at least a couple of years before any major upgrading. I also don't want to have the most newb ... Read More »
