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)

Do you have a complete IRO bike?

How long did it take from ordering online to arrival in the mail? Also, tell me if you ordered customizations or just a plain complete bike.

Thanks.

And ya, I'm either impatient, or excited...pick one.

2 days for me. I bought the frameset and HS and built it up with:
Ritchey Comp seatpost (transfered from another build)
Brooks b-17
Andel Cranks
Suntour pedals with toshi straps (transfered from another build)
Kalloy stem
bullhorns (transfered from another build)
formulas laced to Alex rims (transfered from another build)

Their turnaround is about a week now from order date to shipping date so it'll probably take a week and a few days to actually get to your house, maybe a bit more because I just noticed you're out of Hawaii so throw a couple extra days on there

I bought a Jamie Roy fork/frameset. It took about a week or two to get it...I forgot exactly how long. Here's an old pic...yeah yeah, it's not a drivetrain pic.


TehK - Aren't you on lafixed.com? This is IRO74.

Mine took about a week. I got the frame, wheelset and saddle from IRO. Everything else I got from Yojimbo's.

It took about a week. I ordered a Jamie Roy stock. I used my own pedals. Great customer service from Tony.

I ordered a complete Jamie Roy which took something like a week to get shipped, then a few days to get here. Tony was pretty cool when I called up and made a slight change (different wheels) to the order like 3 days after I placed it.

I placed my order on like a Friday night and the bike got there like the following Thursday. For some reason, i had it delivered to my parents house in Dayton(i think my mom was afraid it'd get stolen being delivered to a dorm so i had to wait a few more days before i had a chance to go pick it up

when i ordered mine i had to wait a few weeks because they were doing inventory or on vacation or something but once they got back it took about 2-3 weeks for them to build up the complete bike with all the iro parts and ship it to me. i wish i had told them to cut the steering tube longer so i could then recut it myself after adjusting everything to my liking. since then i have replaced everything except the bottom bracket and cranks, not because they werent good quality but just because i wanted some other stuff. all the iro stuff is going onto an old raleigh frame since they are all decent parts. yay for iro!!

Thanks! Yeah, it's been my main street ride for the last year or so. But, I don't live in Chicago anymore, and don't have this bike with me. I miss riding it a lot. Are you on ChiFG?

Odd, I was browsing around there late/early last night - looks like the domain expired:

irofixedgear.com expired on 03/15/2008 and is pending renewal or deletion.

Probably just needs the domain to be renewed and all should be hunky-dory.

I'm awaiting my Rob Roy group buy ... can't freaking wait
