    they're awesome, tony is a fantastic guy and deserves your business. (plus he's done a huge amount for the community here).

    buy them.

    (his son passed away recently, so the shop has been closed, but it's scheduled to re-open on the 17th).

    Potus said "Go to koko" to which yonderboy responded "I eat cats. They taste good." and then something I don't know. Potus then asked if that were true.

    and yeah, get the iro's

    he said 'I eat cats' 'they're delicious aren't they?' 'I like cats'

    and yeah get the IROs. I think for the aeroheads they are around 180-190.

    less. 160, i think, for the basic wheelset. 250 maybe for the deluxe wheelset--IRO hubs with deep V's.

    get em.

    FWIW, unless you can get wholesale deals on parts from a shop, it's probably cheaper to buy a pre-built set from IRO, so don't stress too much about not building your own.

    I'm building up a set right now that are costing me more than I probably would've paid for pre-built IRO wheels, and they're not *that* fancy. Though they are decent. IRO hubs, Mavic Open Pro rims, DT Revolution 14/15 double-butted spokes.

    Laced 'em up last night. Should get around to getting them tensioned and trued sometime this weekend. After that the only parts left to get the Nishiki beater rolling again are a cog and a lockring (Plus, maybe, a front chainring. Anyone know where I can get a 44T 130 BCD *black* chainring relatively inexpensively?).

    Yeah, I'm already rocking the MARK V, Tony is going to get the business from me when the site comes back up, I just wanted to have a price range in mind.
