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)

It's a new contest!!!

So I have an IRO front hub with a minor blemish that I was sent a replacement for by Tony and his great customer service. He said give it to someone who needs it, so here goes. The winner will have shipped to them at no cost a 32 hole front IRO hub. The contest, well couldn't really think of one. So basically make me send you this hub, do what it takes, keep it in the forum rules, have fun. This has been approved by the powers above, but it will get shut down if it gets out of hand. Have at it boys(and girls).

Free hub to first response?

Can I ask what the blemish was? I just received my IRO hubset, and, while not perfect, they look pretty good for the $20 + shipping. It's good to hear that IRO was chill chill about it, but I don't think I'll have to deal with any returns or anything.

Well I will say this. I have no front wheel right now..lol. Well I do, but it is from the 80s and I only bought a rear wheel so far. So if a factor to winning the contest somehow factors in with need, then I am that guy. I am saving up for another weinmann dp18 for some hard city riding so a front hub would be fantastic.

As for the contest...I would gladly entertain you with a quick funk slap bass solo. lol.

The blemish is a knick at the top of the flange, very small, not a big deal, but I am anal I guess. I'll post up pics when I get home. And yes, Tony at IRO is a fantastic person to deal with.

OK so my idea sucked. Bomb Komodo send me your shipping info and I'll get it out tomorrow. Sounds like you could use it.

I'm surprised no one wants a free hub.

I removed it, because I was politely asked to. Some of you need to relax. It's only a messageboard.
