New 2008/2009 IRO group buy?

I think we should contact Tony about another group buy. A great IRO frame with no decals for $150 never hurt nobody. Let's do this.

1. Reply to this post with your interest, (yes or no)
2. What type of frame would you want (Angus, Mark V, Mark V Pro)
3. What colors do you want?
4. Do you just want the frame? A complete? Or a complete minus wheelset (or something similar)


I'm sure Tony wouldn't mind stealing some thunder from the Kilo TT pro coming out on the 7th of next month.


J

P.S., I have no experience with the former IRO group buy, if anyone knows anything about logistics PM me or respond to this thread ASAP. Tony is a little backed up with work right now so taking care of most of the details without him would be best.

Cool. Noted. Everyone make sure to vote in the poll also.

And one more thing about colors: pick any color you want, you're NOT limited to white, red, and black or blue.

for example mine would be:

1. Yes
2. Angus
3. Baby Blue or Pearl White
4. just frame

I'd be in for a Model 19...any color.

I have zero interest in another road/track bike from IRO.

1. Yes
2. Angus
3. Black or Williamsburg blue
4. Complete

Thanks for all the positive responses. I will be contacting Tony first thing on Monday to tell him how great the response is, and to initiate the group buy process. If anyone worked on the previous group buy please PM me.

Thanks for all your input. I will be going over these by hand to keep a hard tally.

Please continue to vote and have your friends vote.
