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)

My new IRO

Today I watched my LBS build up my new iro angus. I made it all matching colors, orange frame, yellow pad, yellow brake cable, yellow valve covers, white bar tape, white pad, white saddle, black wheels, black seatpost, black crank, black pedals (soon to be crank bros-black) black chainring (soon to be), black brakes, black nalini classic shoes,

nice ride, but the iro stock stem looks so wonky on that otherwise classic-looking frame (function first, i know, i know).

Yeah, I don't know why they don't offer at least a zero degree rise stem.

Mine went straight to the spare parts bin...

Sweet IRO, I got my Mark V Pro a few days ago and was also my first fixed, and has been nothing but extremely awesome since.

I like. I picked up an orange frame about a month ago (not IRO) and am starting to really dig the color.

Great looking bikes. And yes, that is a Soloist Carbon. Sweetness abounds at that house.

Couple questions: Why is the chainring on the inside of the spider? Where did you get the frame pad?
