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)

At IRO

I ordered a bike online and want to talk to them about specifics on the order, which number do I call, the "order hotline"?

I know, I just wasn't sure if that was to just place an order or if it mattered. I guess they're so small it doesn't.

i've actually had some trouble getting through on the telephone the past two days.

i'm ordering a frameset and had a question, but didn't get any answer (and yes, i called between 7 and 10. several times)

i know that he's got a family, so i totally don't begrudge him at all - i'm sure he's got more important stuff to attend to than my dumb questions, so it's a good thing the questions weren't all that pressing. i went ahead and ordered to make sure i could take advanage of the 10% off!

Also, he was on vacation for a few weeks, that's why he was offering 10% off products. Now he probably has a hell of a backlog to fill. Yes, it says he will be answering phones til 10pm but he's a small operation so take that into consideration.

Plus, he hates you.

Plus, you are totally teh gay.
