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)

frames are done in two days..

Before someone tells me to just call Tony, I don't really care that much, so I won't bother him. I have another bike and I just assumed all sorts of threads would pop up to let me know when it was time.

no jumping the gun??? there's no fun in that!

But seriously, I was wondering about the new site. Some things that were advertised on the old site are not there. Like the wheelsets. Is that just an oversight or did he give up selling wheelsets? I was really looking forward to buying those dark matter wheels that got great reviews from our peers through on bike experience.

I think the website means they'll be done in Taiwan on May 25.
They'll be on a shipping container for a few weeks after that. Then
they have to be trucked across the United States, from LA to PA,
and then sorted and shipped to us. Don't get excited yet.

i think wondering what the hell those updates mean is valid

lets parse them

I will also be offering buildkits and complete bike builds for anyone who wants.


so the frame sets will ship FROM taiwan TO iro at the end of may

it takes 30 days for the frames to get to iro FROM taiwan

two weeks before the frames get TO iro tony will send an email to complete orders

Originally Posted by Tony's Update

the "end of may" = may 25th

so if they leave taiwan on or around may 25th and ride on a boat for 30 days they get TO iro until late june

according the to schedule you can expect an email in mid june to complete your order and then at the end of june or start of july the frame will be shipped TO you

PS, if anyone needs the blue 1" threaded fork (from this iro group buy), lemme know. I probably won't be using mine.
