    probably best to do a search. iros are well thought of. bb choices are plentiful, as are the rest of the spec options.

    fwiw if i were buying an iro i'd go for as many of the house parts and deals as i could.

    IRO BB perhaps?

    Oh, yeah, and do a search.
    This is just ridiculous.

    I guess there really isn't a lot of info on the Angus, though. FWIW I just ordered one complete and paid just over $800, which is probably a good deal.

    It is mine and thank you very much.
    If you're still looking for a frame, I'd definitely recommand it.
    Maybe not as "nice" but a lot cheaper than an IRO.
    What tubing is an IRO anyway?

    Pake is 4130 tubing.
    Pretty much bottom of the barrel but not dangerous or easily broken or anything like that - just not as high quality as others.
    Reynolds 631 is better but still not great, from what I understand.
    I don't believe that I've been riding long enough to tell the difference between 4130 and top of the line so, for me, the Pake is great.
    Pake runs $290 frame and fork.
    The fork is threadless so I put on a BikeWorks NYC threaded fork.

    asking if you should get iro on this forum is ridiculous. well, almost. in the case of the angus, i could see there being more questions since it's newer. and one good question that i don't have answer to for it is if the frame's geometry is track-ish enough...not really, i guess.

    If you check the geometry page at www.irocyle.com you will see that it shares the geometry of the Mark V.

    WHY
    I am asking because some here may know if its a good frame or if it has its drawbacks.I never have ridden a stock IRO frame or mixed parts IRO frame for that matter and hearing knowledge from people who do own or have ridden one is what I want to hear.
    That isnt fallacious reasoning......besides the frame( IRO angus frame) is fixed and this is a "singel speed fixed gear" forum is it not?

    everyone here has a huge ***** for IRO.

    you are going to hear good things, and for a starter bike, i'd say go for it.
