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)

Pictures of your Angus. AnGus, sickos

If you have an IRO Angus, can you post a picture of it? Im trying to decide between that and the Mark V, but I can only find the one Angus picture that Tony Arms has on his website. So, I'd appreciate some of your pictures. Thanks, all...

Tony, you might want to post some more pictures of the Angus in your site's Gallery. Just my $0.02.

Every pic I've seen so far has been part of a fugly build. I'd like to see some nice shots using the Angus as well.

Anyone know if the Angus' fork is lugged or unicrown? I can't tell from the above pics.

i'm guessing it's unicrown. (and nothing else on the bike is lugged, right?)

i'm really confused... how are these bikes "retro" or old looking.. i always equate that with lugged bikes, flat fork crowns...

i'm more into the shiner bock than that bike

Meh, it's a well-priced 631 frame. I don't take it as anything else.
