OK - I feel compelled to chime in here : the coolest thing about buying a bike from a LBS : some (many ?) will do free lifetime tuneups and adjustments. and you don't feel like a schmuck bringing a new bike in there
Reminds of runners who get fit at a local running store for shoes...then bail and buy that exact model on-line.
OK - I am donning my asbestos gloves and helmet now....flame away
I Have a kilo TT, as well. I think the wheelset is decent. Has stayed true pretty well for me--I got mine about 2 years back though so I don't know if theyve changed anything. The only part I can recall being utter garbage was the saddle, but my roomate just got a dawes sst and that one seems to be a little better. I would definitely tune up everything on it though, including overhauling the hubs if they need it. also spray it down with WD-40 I started getting some rust in my tube/headset.
Don't feel guilty not buying local--consider it a market expression that you think they need to price them more competitively. I endup using local places for parts/service so I don't feel bad at all that I am not buying their overpriced bikes.
I road a kiloTT for year with out a problem ..... in fact I loved the bike. best 325.00 ever spent
