building a flip-flop with IRO frame

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)

building a flip-flop with IRO frame

it seems like the majority of people in bikeforums are all for an iro cycles frame. does anyone have experience using a mark v or a jamie roy to build a flip-flop, single-speed-fixie? both have rear brake mounts, right? adding velocity wheels sounds like the way to go. any other suggestions for an inexpensive but reliable build? thanks.

buy a complete, the parts are reliable and inexpensive. tell him that you want to run both singlespeed and fixed and it will come set up for you to switch easily. the velocity wheels are very nice.
