Anyone had experience with IRO Cycles?

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 had experience with IRO Cycles?

So I bought a frame and the drivetrain set from IRO thinking it would be better for me to build it myself. I'm coming to realize it will be more expensive if I do it this way and have already bought the frame, drivetrain, stem, handlebars, seatpost, etc.

I have not assembled the parts and they've been under sheets for the past month or two as I collect the parts and wait to assemble. I have done nothing with these parts...other than take them out of the box.

I submitted an inquiry to IRO to see if I can exchange the parts that I've already bought and pay the difference for one of their complete builds....seeing as I was an idiot and could have saved so much more money doing it that way...anyone know what their exchange policy is if they have one?

Nobody here has ever heard of IRO.

If you've submitted an inquiry, just wait to see what happens. They may refund the difference or offer store credit.

If not, chalk it up to experience. I wouldn't blame IRO for your mistake; they would've had no idea what you were planning.

I never said I was blaming them for my mistake and a lot of people have heard of IRO Cycles who live in the United States. Don't be so arrogant, it was just a simple question. You don't have to talk down to someone who was just wondering if anyone had experience. Thanks.

It was sarcasm. Take a little time and do some searching around the forums.

Generally, people have good experiences with IRO. The guy is reputed as being pretty friendly.

I've heard he's a pretty chill guy. Hoping for the best. But yeah I can certainly understand if they "can't" without knowing what has happened to the frame, etc. Once out of their hands anything could have happened. I could understand their reluctance.
