Iro Superthread

Alright so, here's the story with this thread. Im sitting here and thinking "man i can't wait to order and IRO" i just cancelled my order on my Kilo becaue i thought to myself for $200 more i can get a bike thats well worth that extra money, coming from a legit company who is also trying to be green which i am all for (working at a specialty outdoor store and loving the outdoors). From the wheels, to the cranks and other parts on it it's just a better bike IMO, plus you get the great customer assistance (from what i hear) from Tony. I look at the ss/fg forum and see "Pista Concept Supthread" and i see "Kilo TT Pic Thread" Im thinking to myself...ummm well IRO i feel has quite a following and needs a place to post the pics up. Post your IROs or just ones that you like or have inspired you simple as that. Yes i know there is a place to post your ss/fg bikes, but lets specialize and salute Tony for creating such a great company for all of us.

Searched for something like this and couldn't find it. I'd like to either keep that one going or just start in this one again. Either or. Thanks for the idea, if you can find the other thread more than welcome to bump it up.

I find it hilarious that every photo in this thread so far has risers or flat bars.

here is a pic of my mark v pro, this is without the front brake and grips. it has a black brooks on it as well. sorry for the crappy foto, its the only one that I have of it at the moment, I put a reverse TT brake lever and black track grips. its heavier than my other bike, but its geared low for cruising and hills. its really fun to ride, and can handle pretty heavy loads easily! those are 32c randos.
