    IRO wheels, information?

    I am considering buying a pair of IRO standard wheels for a fixie conversion. Are these wheels good? On their website they provide zero specifications about them. Anyone know what size they are and what size tires they'll fit? I emailed IRO but didn't get a response.

    Certainly 700c. I'm sure IRO wheels are decent quality.

    Also, consider anything from this site. They are all a reasonable value.

    Thanks for the site.

    I checked it out and it looks like none of their rear track wheels have 126mm spacing, they are all 120. As my bike is a conversion it has 126mm spacing.

    On the purchase page for the wheels there is a drop down box for rear wheel spacing options. There is 120mm, 126mm, and 130mm.

    I was refering to the bicyclewheels.com site, not the iro site.

    Where can you get spacers?

    Are the IRO 126mm hubs really just their 120mm hubs plus spacers?

    Yes. a 3mm spacer on each side. You should be able to get spacers from your friendly LBS.

    Thanks for the help guys. I think I'll go with the bicycle wheels site.
