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)

Mark V Pro price mistake?

They have the frameset on their site for $249.00 which is cheaper than the regular Mark V. I think they were selling for a lot more before IRO temporarily look them off their site.

Maybe it's a special "these won't ship for another 11 months" price. Either that or the site is completely out of date and not to be trusted.

It says clearly on the site that frames will not ship till October 16, but no year. You might as well go custom with that wait.

I got to the same page and price by clicking from their homepage inwards.

it's under the bargain basement page, so it stands to reason they're clearing out old stock to make way for the new Mark V Pro. I remember Min saying that IRO told him the Mark V Pro wouldn't be in until spring.

I see a $249.00 Mark V Pro that is not under bargain basement page. It is under framesets.

You only get a quantity of 1 when you drop down the 50cm. Others are OOS
