Congratulations, you are the winner of the first to post IRO group buy photo!!!

just send bank info, ss, dob, address and we will deposit prize in your bank account

good looking frame, glad buyers are finally starting to get the frames

that looks really nice, great color and not having decals adds to style...good luck on your new ride

did you get your fork too???

Looks like it totally blew out the saturation on your camera sensor (nice and bright).

Here's my Orange 52cm with parts stolen from my Surly Steamroller. Haven't decide if I want to go singlespeed, fixed or nexus 8. Right now only wheel I have that is spaced for 130mm is my road wheel.

those are Scott AT-4s. about 20 years old now. an early attempt at an integrated aero bar for mountain bikes. not long enough for good aero positioning, though. i like them because i'm used to them (20 years of using the same bars will do that). they're also really stiff and fairly light for bars their size (54 cm wide).
