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)

Something for Tony at IRO to think about??

Dont know if this has been brought up (search came up with nothing) but i would love to have an IRO shirt or hat or something. Ive seen all these other bike companies with merch such as this. Anyway, if these do exist and i am just mistaken, sorry, but perhaps Tony could make a few dollars from this.

yeah that would be great, i don't know if i would sport the shirt, but a nice cycling hat would be cool. and while we're on the topic of iro suggestions, i think the mark v should come in white or red.

Another thing: Why isn't there a 631 sticker on the new Angus; which is made out of 631 steel?

A cycling cap's a great idea. If IRO had one I might finally have a cap.

I just don't want to advertise giant bike companies whose products I don't own.

the soma rush brags about it. and the 631 decal is a pretty nice looking one.

I would love to have an IRO cycling shirt. I fear what would happen if the puma crowd found out about it though.

if it was to happen, i would say just the IRO logo from the bikes on the front and then maybe in small letters "you only need one" on the back up by the neck. i dont know, just my 2 cents.

Ooo. How about something like this with the IRO head badge on the right shoulder and "You Only Need One" down the left torso (readable in the the riding position).

Yeah, a shirt or a hat would be awesome. A guy in NYC involved with fixed-gear culture MUST know someone who silk-screens..
