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)

Anyone go to IRO's Customer Appreciation Day?

I was hoping to go but my kids had soccer games. Just wondering if anyone went and scored any of the free stuff Tony was giving out, other than food. Apparently everyone who went would have left with something from framesets to parts.

Family first (ie kids soccer games) > Free IRO stuff

But yeah, if I didn't have kids, I'd have been there.

They have some stems/seatpost and a few rob roys left. Amazing if you can get a frame for $1 plus shipping. There aren't any left in my size though, and wouldn't want to spoil the spirit of the event by buying, and ebaying it for a profit.

Error message comes up saying you must have at least $7 in your cart to checkout. Everything else is sold out. How are you supposed to come up with $7 if you can only buy one bargain item?

They specificied that you were to only order 1 item from the bargain basement so others would have the opportunity to purchase.

I'm sure the technological f-up was not intentional. Sheesh, talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth. Send a email and hope for the best.

DELIVERY METHOD

Sorry, there are no available shipping methods for your location.


I live in USA, right near boston. They say that you cant ship there???

edit: I was not going to order the 7 frames. I just wanted to see if it could be done.
