I'm a student at OSU here in Columbus, OH (though I'm a little ashamed to admit the affiliation tonight )
I've been riding as a commuter and somewhat recreationally for the past few years on the heaviest Schwinn Varsity known to man. That got stolen a month or so ago, so I've been doing my research. Ordered an IRO Mark V a few weeks ago, and it arrived in pieces this tuesday! Took me over 10 hours to assemble and nitpick over since all the mechanics are new to me... but I did it, and damn is she sexy! I might try for commuting this winter which is partially why I went fixie.
Now that I've been researching, I'm starting to oggle other peoples bikes... is this the beginning of the end for me!?
Anyways, good meeting you all! Thanks for the excellent resource!
