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)

IRO Re-opening sale.

Just thought I'd give everyone the heads up.

www.irocycle.com

Feb. 8th is Tony's re-opening and it looks like he's offering a discount on orders (I assume only orders placed that day). Looks like it's 6 days until I order my new bike!!!!

For people that have ordered direct from IRO in the past, what did shipping run you on top of the price of the bike? TIA.

****ing awesome. i've been trying to order my wheels for a month, and they should be in stock now. i was going to order them on the 8th anyway, so i might as well save 10% when i do.

Yes, it's drilled for a long reach brake. Some have gotten away with a short reach, but typically it needs a long reach.

The lockrings look like surly lockrings too, with the extra lip for more thread engagement.

Saddles are for people with butts. I had mine removed long ago to save grams. Luckily, I hated sitting down anyway. Sleeping standing up is the jam.
