    Does the IRO GB bike have a name?

    Earlier today I was telling someone about this bike I had ordered from this company called IRO, etc, etc...

    Then they asked me what the name (as in a model name) of it was. My response was, "Uhhh..."

    Does it have a name?

    Maybe the organizer of the group buy should ask Tony if he wants to name it, so that we all have something other than "bfss/fg groupbuy IRO" to put in our sigs?

    Mac

    P.S. What's the closest estimate we have for a ship date? I don't feel like trudging through 40 pages to find it.

    There should be a funny name for it. Like "Hipster"

    That way you could "take the hipster out for a ride"

    I brought this up in the other thread. I think this should have a name and some suggestions would be nice. Otherwise I will be calling mine 388[order number]

    I am guessing the ship date will be some time in early June. Not what a lot of people are going to want to hear but that is being realistic.

    And I think there was something on the order page about the name being SL...don't know if that stands for something or if Tony just didn't give it a name. My guess is that this will become a production bike in the future but I don't have any proof of that.

    your mom, just think of the possibilities:

    i am going to go ride your mom
    your mom only cost me $150
    your mom comes in three colors
    your mom is my beater
    etc.
    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) youíve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) youíre in a bike race in which case youíre not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) youíre from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when itís pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."

    Just name it "The __#__" where the number sign is the number of framesets purchased in the group buy. (i.e. The 134, The 203, The 5678424, or however damn frames you guys bought)
