Mercier Kilo TT Pro

This was my first fixed gear, and it's been great to me. It's stiffer and tighter-geometry than my other bikes, which is nice at times.

Frame:
Mercier Kilo TT

Fork/Headset:
Merciert Kilo TT/Cane Creek

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Black Sugino RD/Unknown

Pedals:
MKS Sylvan Road pedals, MKS Steel clips (large), makeshift MKS NJS single straps (a double strap cut in half)

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Milwaukee 17-tooth cog/Sugino Messenger 46-tooth chainring/KMC "Drop Buster" 510hx chain

Handlebars/Stem:
Easton EA30 high-rise risers with Stolen (the brand, not actually stolen) Money Grips/Unknown stem

Saddle/Seatpost:
Selle Italia Turbo (perforated) saddle/Thomson Elite seatpost

Brakes:
Tektro dual-pivot front brake

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Red-anodized Velocity Deep-V 36h/Formula Hub/Continental Gatorskin (700x23)

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Black Velocity Aerohead/Dura-Ace High Flange Hub/Contintental Gatorskin (700x23)

Accessories:
Planet Bike Superflash light

More Info:
Most of the frame is covered in industrial Sharpie, which sadly doesn't hold up as well as I'd hoped it would.

Did you do a clear coat or anything over the sharpie? How easily does it come off? Thinking of doing something like this

Posted almost 9 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

No I didn't. I think the chemicals in a clear coat would damage the Sharpie and make the ink run. So I just left it, and the Sharpie doesn't hold up very well. What does work a lot better are paint pens. On more recent projects I've used Molotow paint markers with much better success.

david says:

dude i just noticed your rear wheel has a dura ace hub :D

we are running the same brake setup :)

Posted over 12 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

Yep, gotta love Dura Ace. I have a Deep V front with the same hub, but it's non machined and wouldn't work so well with my brake. ;-)

Posted over 12 years ago

david

david says:

I don't know if you tried but...I'm using non machined with my brake. For some reason the brake pad wears down SUPER fast...is it just the stock pad or does it have something to do with the fact that its not machined haha

Posted over 12 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

My only experience with brakes on a non-machined rim was that it made a horrible squealing noise. I machined the rim and the noise stopped completely.

Sweet bike. Does the front wheel on this one match the one on the other bike of yours? Sharpie art is NICE. That's gotta be tough to do on a frame.

Posted almost 13 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

Yeah, it does match the other bike...and thanks for the comments...it was tough but I'm happy with the end result.

how do you like the pro? i know a few people with the normal kilo...any major difference?

Posted almost 13 years ago

Coomer

Coomer says:

I like it a lot! It's the exact same frame as the regular Kilos, just has different cranks and stock wheels on it...and a brake. The main reason I went with the pro is I wanted the cream color, lol. ;-)

Coomer says:

I really like it. It's perfect for the hills in Seattle. If I lived somewhere flatter, I'd probably run something with more gear-inches though.
