    Question about the IRO Heidi!

    So my GF is looking to purchase the complete Heidi from the IRO website. I finally convinced her to go fixed but she wants to try it out on SS first.

    I was wondering for those of you have ordered from IRO whether or not their wheelset came with a flip flop hub or if it is fix/fix?

    We wanted to save money by purchasing the fixed version since I have a set of brakes available and all we need is a freewheel cog, but if the flip flop only comes on the SS option we'll probably choose that one.

    Thanks
    -Justin

    If its fixed/fixed you can still put a freewheel on it.

    I'm sure you can request a fixed/free wheelset when ordering from IRO.

    if you would have looked into it for about 2 minutes youd see that you CAN go fixed free.

    http://irofixedgear.com/index.asp?Pa...ROD&ProdID=150

    under cog selection: select freewheel tooth
    under Need a second cog: choose between another freewheel and tooth amount OR fixed cog and tooth amount.

    the hub is fixed/free.
    you'll need to purchase a freewheel and a rear caliper/brake lever - from IRO or elsewhere.

    Yes, please do.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    well the only option is to order the single speed with the flipflop hub, since the fixed doesnt have the option to come with a fixed free. looks like hes getting an extra set of brakes.
