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)

What exactly comes with the IRO Mark V complete?

I am just curious if it comes with stuff like bar tape, a seat, pedals, tires/tubes, etc. I called IRO today, but only left a message. How much other stuff will I need to buy in order to ride my bike?

Thanks,

Colin

Tony will sell you both pedals and a front brake if you don't want to bother shopping for them elsewhere.

Yup, that is my plan.

I know the picture of the Mark V shows non-velocity aerohead wheels, but I assume the bike does come with the aeroheads, correct?

There seems to be several non-standard parts on that bike that is pictured.
Chainring looks different
The seatpost and stem both look like upgrades.

Those very well might be aerohead rims, but for some reason the hubs look like they are low-flange and therefore not IRO, or possibly the singlespead front hub.

Tony makes a point to say that all parts listed might be substituted for something else to get you the bike as fast as possible. If specific parts are important to you, just tell him and he will make sure you get them.
