    Got my new IRO JR today....

    Just got my Jamie Roy frame, IRO rear hub and headset in the mail today. I'm pretty impressed. The frame is functional and decent quality, as is the hub. The frame was very well packed and shipped quickly-and as a bonus the guys at IRO even pressed in my headset cups for me. They also gave me a break with customs charges, which was considerate. I am very pleased. I'd do business with them again in a heartbeat. Just got to rustle up some parts for the build and I'm ready to rock.

    Since it is in Canada now, do you call it Jamie "Wa" and we Americans call it Jamie "Roy"? HA!

    Slapped it together last night. It rides pretty sweet. I like that I can fit some small knobbies and fenders for winter action. Here's a pic.

    Sounds good to me. The mark V is cool, but the TT is too short for me.

    Bikeofile, just discovered your website, "Gold, Pure Gold My Friend!" as my friend would say. Nice to see some Canadian online shops starting up, and you never know, maybe in a while you will be sending some stuff my way You have nice prices too, and I love the free shipping.

    We do strictly mail order (but hand deliver in the city). We're right downtown and often have our products at Cavern Cycles (I do a lot of work with Keith who owns Cavern). BTW, the best guy for SS and Fixed (and any service for that matter) is Keith (posts as cavernmech occasionally on the boards)
