    '05 Iron Horse Catalog posted...

    ...or at least what *I think* is their 2005 catalog, as a series of .pdf files on the ironhorsebikes.com website under "2005 Sneak Peak" in the left hand column. Unfortunately, they offer no more detail that what's been seen in the pics and specs floating around the boards for the past month or so.

    What I don't get (Todd?) is that each MKIII bike image has a "Hollowpoint" caption underneath it. Are these being called "Hollowpoint MkIII", or just "MkIII"? Man-O-man, that OD Green Expert looks great!

    Yeah, I hate the animation too. But at least it loads. The last version of their website (the '03 IHbikes.com?) hung my Opera browser.

    To put it in perspective, I hate Internet Explorer even more than I hate the animation.

    Oh well..

    2005 MK III Colors? What's Up?

    Just curious, but is the MK III Team Version really Baby Blue? And, the Expert version Olive Drab? I have nothing against those colors for other things, but for a mountain bike? The Olive Drab isn't bad, but Baby Blue?? I know some might like it, but that is something I would have a hard time growing on me.

    Oh, Moo Shoo sweetie, we're just not keeping up with your fashion trends now, are we? You're probably still wearing black shorts then, aren't you?

    Todd and Bruce are obviously busy-busy-busy keeping up with the latest from Paris, and are prepared to sweep in to the '05 season like a Mediterranean storm! These bike will look as at home on the runway as they do on the podium.

    I say, bring on the pink, Honey! Bring on the pink!

    The Mk III is the 3rd generation of the Hollowpoint. We still refer to it as a Hollowpoint b/c of it's lineage and usage.

    About the website...that load will be changing for the 05 site but thanks for the feedback.

    For the 05 colors...the production color is a little grayer but still has a baby blue-ish hue. It is very pretty. Chicks dig it too

    If you like the Mk III Team color you'll love one of the Azure Factory color options: pastel purple! Hella sweet!

    LMAO! I guess I can pull out my pink Lycra back from the 80's if I ride that baby blue bike. Speed, I don't know where you got those posts but they are great! BTW, my wife loves the Baby Blue MKIII Team. Maybe have to get in touch with my feminine side..........

    Man, I really want an HP Expert but that green is fugly. If you gotta have creative colors, at least offer some other colors for those of us who want to buy but don't want the fugly.

    While I'm at it, ditch the cartoon on the intro page. I hate having to sit through that thing.

    Will HP frames be available frame-only?
