    crazyhorse69, I bought my bike in Northern Virginia, but if you go to Kuota North America you can do a search by zip code. There are a couple in Santa Monica that I noticed, but there may be others closer to you.

    @Raedyn....i went to those crappy dealers in santa monica, the prices are 2 high and costumer service was horrible. Also they dont have the complete bike, they just have the frame and fork.
    KOM frame = $3,175
    KULT frame= $2,949 what do you think?

    From what I've seen online, the price on the KULT frame is on the lower end. Some places have them for 500 bucks higher, so you could do worse. Did you try talking the guy down further?

    crazyhorse, www.trisports.com is an authorized Kuota dealer and where I got a pretty good deal. Their website doesn't list the Kult yet but if you talked to them they might be able to help you out or point you to someone that has it. They are widely regarded as one of the best Tri shops in the nation.

    Hey Sa7nt,

    I just picked up the same bike as yours recently. However, I haven't had a chance to really ride it yet.

    I noticed that the top-tube and down-tube are kinda thin. When I press down on them from the sides, particularly the down-tube, I'm able to compress the carbon horizontally.

    Do you notice the same on your bike? Also, do you notice flexing under heavy load?

    Sa7nt,

    I just picked up the same bike a couple months ago. However, I haven't had a chance to really test the bike out yet.

    A couple of things that I'd like to point out:

    I noticed that the top-tube and down-tube are kinda thin. When I press down on them from the sides, particularly the down-tube, I'm able to compress the carbon horizontally.

    Do you notice the same on your bike? Also, do you notice flexing under heavy load?

    Hi, love your bike, i have the same but in red. Rides superb, but whenever i'm out the saddle climbing, i'm getting a constant creaking sound, which i'm guessing is from the bottom bracket. Just wondering if you have had a similar problem, and if you know of a way to sorting the problem. Thanks

    I had some creaking from my bottom bracket on my Kult when I first bought it. I took it to my LBS and they adjusted it. I think they may have added a shim, but I'm not sure.

    Later on my bike developed another creak, which seemed to come from the bottom bracket, but this time the culprit was the adjust length system (ALS) insert on the crank arm. They lubed the insert and the noise went away.
