Measure how many MM of spacers on it, because IRO makes hubs in 120, 126, and 130 mm. So it could be a 126 or a 130 with spacers and you'd be screwed. If you measure the amount of spacers and it turns out to be 15, then you are money and you can just take them out. Once you take them out, make sure you snug up the outer lock nuts (the nut that touches the inside of the dropout), because on iro hubs those tend to crack when you over-tighten the outer track nuts. Don't over tighten the inner ones though, like I said just snug them up, because it will put more stress on the bearings, basically hand tight, maybe a tenth of a turn with a wrench past hand tight. Sorry for the lack of punctuation, and the little kid detail, I'm tired as hell and just want to make sure everything works out for you.
