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)

IRO Angus?

I'm getting ready to buy my first fixie (for use as a track/commuter) and have been thinking about the IRO Angus. Has anyone had any experience (good or bad) with this bike?

Do a search on Angus (IRO brings up nothing) lots of feedback, all good. I have a Jamie Roy, Love it! IRO does a great job of building up a bike, particularly wheels. Price is right. Just buy it you're wasting time you could be riding an IRO right now, seriously

I've said it once, and I'll say it again. It is absolutely UNREAL how many times the exact same questions come up on this site. UNREAL. At least 3 times a week there is a thread about these cheap ass frames and which one is the "best". STOP THE MADNESS PEOPLE!! STOP IT!!!

Yeah, but as with most internet discussion groups there are more posts whining about repetitive posts than actual repetitive posts. STOP THE WHINING PEOPLE! THOP IT!

There are? I'm pretty sure you're wrong. But whatever. I've said what I needed to say. Let the flood of redundant posts continue. IRO or Bianchi Pista? Which one is better again?

Jesus, what a bunch of *****es. If I wanted a whine-fest, I'd have asked a teenage girl if she thought she was fat.

A thread about a fat girl would at least be something new. Oh wait, I'm whining again. Sorry, let me get back on topic. IRO or SOMA Rush?
