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)

One last question before I order Mark V

So I am going to order a Mark V from IRO today. I would like to get some black rims/hubs but don't want to pay the extra money to get them from IRO. I was thinking I could save some money by ordering a set of black cxp22s with a formula hub from bicyclewheels.com and having Tony send me everything but the wheels. Will there be any repercussions from this? Would I be better off just dropping the extra money to get the IRO wheels?

If you have the funds just buy the mavics and sell your iro wheels when they arrive.

By not getting them it would save me like $170 and a new set is $199 so I could probably only sell them for maybe $180 which would make me $10. Doesn't really seem worth it. And, the black mavics are $155 compared to 260 for the black IROS.

the IRO wheelset is far better than the other set - they're hand-built and have quality bearings. I'd just just open your wallet a little bit more as it will be worth it in the long run.
