Hey guys. Just wanted to let you know that I just became a dealer for IRO cycles. They have some interesting stuff.

I ordered a Cyclo Cross (Rob Roy) frame that I am going to build up fixed this season. Fenders, wide tires and the lot!

They have some good prices on cranks and such too. It's all 3/32" but still for the price its awesome.

Nice, good for you. I don't think I've ever seen an IRO up close before.... any idea what you will be selling the track frames for?

The Mark V Pro (which is the Track Frame with no cable bosses and such) will sell for $475. That's the most expensive frame. (comes with a fork too though, so still a pretty sweet deal)

The other frames all sell within $50 of this price as well...
Pretty reasonable really!

I just ordered in one of their fixed Cross Frames for myself..

Yeah I made it out it was a pretty nice ride...! I ended up doing the 123km route, there was a 112 and a 145km option.

It was good except the 3 minute hail storm 8km from my house GG. Hehe. Come out to ... possibly next Saturdays ride. It starts at kipling station.

Also since we're with the TBN, we can volunteer on Sunday for the ride for heart (free lunch,t-shirt,ride), which is also the reason for no TBN rides on that day. Your knee should be good to go by then

rob, sorry i couldn't hook up with you guys..it sounded like a tastylunch. the buddies i was supposed to meet up with STARTED drinking at 430am(!) and subsequently didn't hear their alarm so i ended up waiting an hour for them. i managed to get 6 people to ride but it took us about 20 minutes to get to the start line and it was about 930am by then. we weren't exactly peeling it down the highway and it was well past 1130am by the time we finished. wasn't rain in the forecast?? i think i saw a grand total of 2 fixies. great ride though!

Crappy. I thought I heard someone call my name around there too, but I didn't see you. Fun ride though, I wish they would close the DVP more often.

I only saw one fixie out there-I was on my road bike too, I had planned to do a longer ride, but changed my mind after I left my place.

On the donut ride on Saturday, some dude rode it on a brakeless track bike. The guy was an animal. Legs like a body builder, he pretty much hung with the lead group through all but the steepest uphills, and fastest downhills where he couldn't quite hang on. It was pretty impressive.
