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)

it's actually pronounced "esser", like aesthetics with an er instead of a thetics

Indeed, that was a fairly interesting back story for the company's name / logo.

since the IRO name came from talking to people in outer space, how about building up full suspension frames and ditching the wild boar for an alien in a jester hat smoking a joint? that would be sweeeeet.
