    Any interest in a group buy for IRO Rob Roy frames?

    First I want to say that I have *not* talked to Tony about this.

    Would any one here be interested in a Rob Roy frame group buy? Even if Tony says yes, I have no idea what the price would be. If I can get at least 10 people here who are interested I will talk to him and see if it's alright.

    The group buy is still on until Feb 21st, you didn't miss it.
    I would be interested if there is a possibility.

    Right, but the other group by as far as I know is for Mark V / Angus frames, not Rob Roy.

    I need a steel steed with room for fat boots.

    [QUOTE=NuBiker]I was talking about ====> [QUOTE=610]completely missed the Mark V / Angus group buy.I edited my original post... Had I known about it I would have put my request in a bit early on into it.

    Anyway, I am getting a little ahead of myself and shot an e-mail out to Tony just to see what he thinks. Obviously it won't be cheaper than a Mark V, but possibly could be cheaper than the Angus.. Who knows!

    definitely interested

    Are the TT measurements actual or measured horizontal? I'm not sure about the sizing. Also, does anyone know what special tubing is used? I posted these questions on the web site 'contact us' page but haven't heard back yet.

    I don't think it would have mattered. More than a few people expressed interest in the rob roy, but the overwhelming consensus was for an angus/mark v. So if we want a rob roy at a group rate, we're just going to have to take matters into our own hands! Maybe we should post this on the cyclocross forum too...

    You might get enough people from the cyclocross/SSFG forums combined to get Tony to consider it.

    I'd be interested. Unfortunatly I don't have time to read the whole thread on what the deal is and how it's proceeding. But if someone wants to keep me up to date... for the very least of finding enough people for the buy in, my e-mail is timmyc123@gmail.com

    well, the tt on a rob roy is *almost* exactly horizontal. i'd say less than a half centimeter drop from steering tube to seat cluster. so the tt measurement can be considered both actual and effective.

    tubing is not name brand, it's pretty light though.

    Hey there! We had an awesome time, I'll be back out again as soon as there's another ride. So much for internet anonymity, I guess that means no more drunken posting or getting involved in clipless v straps discussions at 3am...

    I find this prospect interesting, but I would be at least five times more interested if it was a special tubing like the other deal.

    I know I could have went about this two different ways. But given the amount of angus/mark v frames that are going to be sold I didn't know how much of a demand would be left for the RR - and if no one was interested I didn't want to waste Tony's time. I've already called a few times and got an answering machine. I'll keep trying and as soon as I find out something I'll post it here.
