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)

New IRO Website is up

FYI - IRO cycles new website is up. It allows you to build your bike. I "built" a Rob Roy and it looks pretty darn good!

It took me a whike to load it also. I sure wish that website would have been available when I bought my Jamie Roy. You can get a pretty good idea of what you're getting.

Is that because you don't know how to install packages? Or because opera doesn't support flash in linux (I always used Firefox)?

depending on your architecture.

But honestly, why not use firefox or iceweasel? both are faster and run better (in my experience) and definitely offer much broader plugin support.
I used opera w/ ubuntu for about two months, then side by side with ff, then finally apt-get remove opera

Haha thanks, I read their help section and it discussed flip-flops, but never hurts to have reassurance as well.

pretty cool site, no prices in the build-a-bike though. definitely 100 times better than before, though. i think the site reflects the company much better now

This is ****in' great. Way better than Pedal Mafia ID, in terms of really envisioning how your complete bike will look! You can find geometry info in the build a bike section.

Does anyone know how they determine what size to call a frame? IE, the iro frame i was looking at is called a 59, even though it has a 58 seat tube. How do they determine what size to call the frame?

Seems since compact geometry, all 59 means is large. Besides, even in the day, some companies did c-t, some did c-c.

I really like the new website. This actually may have swayed me to buy one... Wish I knew the prices though

When you are choosing components, it says how much more money that component will add to the total. After you finishing building the bike, you can add it to the cart to see the final price.
