Cheap, generic, factory direct, off-brand bikes are cheap for a reason.

i had a kilo tt a few yrs ago. it was okay. drivetrain and wheels were garage. the rest wasn't nice but did its job. not sure if id be able to recommend it though to be honest.

i remember talking to you about your road bike. looking for something else, mtb, cx ??

I'm basically looking to get an inexpensive bike to ride mostly off road. The local trails are pretty tame so I'm leaning more towards a CX bike rather than Mtb, plus most parts would be interchangeable with my road bike.
They have a CX with shimano 105 all around that's within my budget and it caught my eye.

As long as the components and wheels are good, I don't see why not. Ride it into the ground for 6-12 months while saving for a better frame/fork. I basically did the same with an older high end specialized. Really nice components on a 52cm frame (I'm 6 foot) for cheap so I copped it, commuted on it for about 8 months, then bought a Surly frameset. It's still my commuter and still going strong.
