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)

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.

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)
