    IRO Group Buy TRADE thread!!

    Ok, i'm going to go ahead and state the obvious: a LOT of people on this forum are gonna want to trade their IRO group buy framesets, and probably for lots of different reasons (yes, i'm one of those people). Soo... i'll start:

    wanted: FLAT BLACK group buy frameset (or just frame, i'm down with either); 53cm, 1" steerer (threaded)

    i have: BLUE group buy frameset (again, or just frame); 53cm, 1" steerer (threaded)


    (if you must know, i came into some components that won't work as well with blue as they would with black)

    HAVE: 53cm black, threadless

    WANT: 56cm, threadless, any color

    I'm in chicago, so a face-to-face trade would be ideal.

    I've posted this elsewhere and got no hits, so here it goes again:

    Have: 59cm green 1 1/8" threadless.

    Want: Preferably a 59cm black 1" threaded. Failing that, a 59cm 1" threaded in any color.

    is it possible the IRO groupbuy frame has already jumped the shark before it's even reached a doorstep? gotta move on to the newest hotness!

    I think there are many that bought them with the intention of flipping them, and likely still more that don't have the money to build them up.

    that, and a lot of **** can happen in three months. there are people who buy and sell all the time and probably don't need one now. don't just assume we're too poor.

    I have the money and parts, I just want to see how the size runs. I thought a 53cm[threaded] would be a true 53cm, but that does not seem to be the case. Its seems that a 56cm would have been more suitable for my size. I don't think I'll sell mine. I may trade, but I may also make a bike for my friend since that frame would fit her.

    Edit. I also put money down on that bike when I still had my last bike. Then I destroyed my last bike trying to remove the seatpost and got a new frame and fork in the meantime.

    The 53 cm has a 53cm seattube C-T, and a 54cm top tube C-C. How is that not a true 53cm?

    There is a chart in one of the other billion threads on the group buy topic.
    I'm looking at the Mark V geometry right not on the IRO site.
    53cm ---- s/t c-c 49cm

    I have deleted offers to buy/sell. It's against forum policy and most of you know better, now cut it out.

    That's a 4cm difference between C-C and C-T. A 1 cm difference between the two would put the "top" below the upper level of the top tube.

    Its 4cm on my BMC SL01. Otherwise they couldn't fit the clamp in. You should take the fit based on top-tube (effective) length anyway. You can move a seatpost up and down by about 25cm, stems you have about 4cm to play with.

    i don't get why anyone's surprised about anything. The size chart clearly lists every measurement and whether it's c-c or c-t, etc. Regardless of what you're used to, if a sizing chart was provided with specifics, why is there any confusion? Granted-- $150 isn't a lot of money, but why would you throw ANY money at something without at least taking a quick look at what it is you were buying?? Makes no sense to me...
