Kilo TT with carbon fork

I've owned this bike for over a year. Its survived commuting through new orleans' rain season and this past new england winter in MA. Awesome bike at a good price. Bought complete from bikeisland.com for $325 complete with free shipping. I've made a few changes from the stock setup on this bike. Swapped out my front wheel and saddle. The tires the bike came with were pretty bad at least for nola roads. After a year of riding and experimenting with different handle bar setups I chopped my fork and converted my drop bars to bullhorns. I'd like to eventually change out my rear wheel to one with a sealed bearing hub but for now the stock rear is holding up well enough.

I'm definitely not feeling the harshness of the road as much, plus its lighter and i don't have to worry about rust. :)
