    New Group Buy

    So I'm a little jealous of the people who got the iro track frame on group buy with good tubing. How do group buys usually get organized and when do you think the next one will be? Soon?

    whenever someone steps up to do it, speaking of which, anybody down for a Jesus christ action figure group buy?

    but srsly, lets give Tony a break

    I think it'd be cool to have a group buy every month with different companies. but I might be dreaming.

    I was going to suggest the same thing. Bikes Direct pretty regularly organizes group buys for their frames through BF, just usually for something fancy and carbon, but I'd wager they be down if we got another 300-500 people to buy a Kilo TT. I mean, the cost of the frameset they were selling on eBay was already equal to what we paid for the IRO, so imagine what a bulk discount would get us.

    As for quality, all three of the Bikes Direct frames are basically the same as the IRO we all got (Taiwanese frame, standard 4130 tubing, etc.), so that's no reason to be put off.

    It seems logical, the guy is on here all the time and we seem to have a pretty good rapport with him

    kilo tt's are already cheap enough. I was thinking a real track bike that you can be proud of -- something that makes a discount worthwhile.

    um, there is no "iro track frame". just go for the current group buy, it's supposed to be a sweet frame.

    Why do you think the Rob Roy wouldn't be a great bike? I wish I has waited to pick one of those up instead of the first group buy.

    If you want to get a group buy going, contact a manufacturer.

    rob roy is great for what it is. but I want a track bike, not a bike with two protruding outlets for brakes and longer geometry. It took me a while to convince myself not to get it. I'd rather spend my money on something I really want. I'll contact a manufacturer, but I'm probably not the most qualified or experienced person to organize something like that. I'll certainly try if no one else steps up.

    QF(mf)T

    i grow to hate my "bfssfgiro" or whatever frame more and more every day i'm forced to have it as my only bike... and i have no plans to go home anytime soon. ****, i'm probably riding 50-75 miles a week less than usual these days.
