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)

Included in the IRO group buy?

A friend seems convinced that the IRO group buy comes with a headset, seatpost, and bottom bracket. I didn't take part in the buy, but have a feeling they may have misread things (I don't recall anyone ever mentioning anything about those being included).

So, is there actually anything included with the IRO group buy frameset?

I don't know specifically, but every frameset I have seen before was a frame and a fork. That is all I am expecting to show up on the front porch anyway. I have bought my own headset, seatpost and bottom bracket.

Now if I can find a 36/32 rim set I like and some cranks I'll be well on my way.

I imagine they read something like "Choose between threaded and threadless" and assumed it meant that the headset was included. Why the seatpost and BB though, I have no idea...


Anyway. Anyone know for sure?

Yes...for sure there is no seatpost, no BB and no headset. The headset question was the style of fork and headtube you wanted...not that it included the headset.

just the frame and fork. buildkits are a separate thing. i would assume so, at least,since tony's offering to sell buildkits and such above and beyond the $150

Thanks. I'll see if I can get them to take part in the Miche buy (again) now that they'll actually need everything in it.

it only comes with a frame and fork. You need to supply your own headset stuff, BB, seatpost, seat, etc...
