Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

IRO dealers in Philly?

I looked on the IRO page and didn't find anything, nor in the stick for LBSs that are fixed friendly.

Can anyone clue me in? Could actually be anyone who sells reasonably priced fixed stuff? I'll be in Philly this week and want to pick up some stuff that will never be had in Montreal - some freewheels, some extra cogs, maybe a dotek 165 crank, bullhorns, nitto bars? Maybe a complete bike if I see one, or a nice frame that's not too $$$. Doesn't have to be track specific. I already know about Via, and I've been to the place by like South and 20somethingth that has Pistas and Surlys.

Thanks to Philly fixers.

I don't know of anyone that has IRO's around here. I would also check out Trophy Bikes at 31st and Walnut, besides Via and Bicycle Therapy (22nd and South).

Drivesports near the art museum is a good stop. They have some iro hubs in stock and stuff, they're building a set of wheels for me right now actually. Good people, and they'll beat almost any price in town.
