IRO Build Kits vs. Are they worth it?

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)

I want to convert my Miyata 110 into a single speed.

Would this be a quick, easy solution?

probably not because the miyata won't have 120mm spacing(maybe bend the stays?) or other specs that the iro kit fits.

just get ebay wheelsets and then use bike co op parts bins to do the rest.
