Derailleurs/Shifters:
None

Handlebars/Stem:
Bontrager VR Compact/ 3T arx pro 90mm/17deg

You can cover its decals with electrical tape.

Gonna upgrade the crankset anytime soon? I think that may reduce its weight a little.

I was thinking that, but I was worried in photos it would look bad. I actually used electrical tape to turn my saddle black, and in pictures its quite hard to see. I'm right now leaning towards Omniums, but sugino75's are growing on me...though I'm not sure when I'll be upgrading

On the GT I have, the previous owner had put black vinyl over the downtube and top tube. It's barely noticable. Hopefully that helps!

Haha thanks! I actually just got back from a ride, that's why. In a couple more hours it'll turn back to black. Sweet and clean Dawes! I was debating between the kilo and this frame actually! How do you like it?

nightstalker says:

love the crap out of it, the kilo was also a debating bike to get lol (love the grape soda color)

imo, the sst al and the kilo tt are really bang for your buck

I agree. They are really underrated on PedalRoom. Most people here think the frame's integral to bike weight but it's really just status. Most people see cheap steel frame and expect it to be a boat anchor, when the fact is I can get this bike lighter than most MASH frames out there lol. The dawes is also no exception. The dawes and kilo geo's are awesome and really staples of the track geo - so its everything you want for a deal.

Thanks! I just wish I could get my saddle to be black too - for a better murdered out look. It's a nashbar cf fork. Nashbar always has sales so I'm sure you can find it for a good price - I got mine for $60 + shipping. The specs on the fork are very close to the stock kilo fork (only 1mm rake difference, which is nothing) and it comes out to 530g cut! Pretty happy with it on my kilo.

You got two kilos ha! They're both sickk

Thanks! I'm digging your murdered pre cursa too. I love how you found that matching Alpina seatpost haha. Mad sexy chainring!

I'm thinking of respraying it soon - maybe to a dark reddish bronze. What colors do you think look good against black components?

JSTEWART304 says:

Hmm are you planning to paint over the chrome as well? I think that would be the determining factor. The reddish bronze sounds really good. It would be a fresh look to other kilos out there.

Yeah, the guy would have to remove the chrome tips/lugs most likely :(. I imagine it'd be hard to sand and tape that precisely.
