Doing a little research. I noticed that NYC bikes has a Bicycling Magazine Special listed since they had an article in the last issue.
What's your take/preference on either of these 2 bikes.
I'm specifically looking at the IRO Mark V. with an added brake for $609 (I would also probably get the upgraded wheelset for $100 too)
Or the NYC special for $729. Here is the build list for that:
Cityfixed Bicycling Magazine Special Edition. CityFixed Alloy Frame, Profile Design BSC Fork, Cane Creek Sealed Cartridge Bearing Headset, RPM Alloy Track Crank, FSA Platinum Pro ISIS Splined BB, NYCBikes High Flanged Flip Flo Hubs, Sun Assault SL1 Rims, 48/18 gear ratio, Profile Design AirWing Bar, Tekto Bulge Lever and Tektro Dual Pull Front Caliper. A sweet deal as a thanks for the feature in Bicycling Magazine, one of our standard 2006 builds at a great price. Choose your color and size, no substitutions on the parts list please.
