    Good looking bike. I like the all black build. I am a fan of IRO bikes, very underrated in my opinion. Now go get that thing dirty.

    That's a pretty good lookin' bike! Go get it dirty and let us know how you like it. As an aside, I had a Rob Roy but happily sold it after 4 months - somehow it was both flexy and harsh - an absolutely horrible ride. Maybe I got a bad one...

    Thanks for the compliments, i just got back from a cold and wet ride and it is one of the best bikes i've ridden. I don't have any pics of it dirty because i rode without touching the ground.

    Same here. Rode it with dirt type drops and skinny cross tires, now back to street fixie. Bulletproof so far. Great bang for the buck.

    ok i need some help. im got my frameset in and am swapping parts over from my conv. my prob is my old frame had a 68mm bb shell and the iro site says the model 19 does too, but when i try to tighten up my bb it stops going in and leaves a rather large gap between the ebb and the collar of the bb itself like it needs a good bit of spacers added. im stumped is it ok just to add spacers evenly on both sides untill its snug? i have the provided spacer on the drive side already. any help would be appreciated. thanks will

    My small frame weighed 5.4 pounds with the ebb in place. I didnt weigh the fork, but was told that it weighs nearly 3 lbs

    Good looking bikes. The geometry looks "wet cattish."

    i dont have a scale accurate enough to measure them but i believe the 3 pound fork weight that this is a boat anchor haha

    Yea, i would agree with that! I built mine up with an Origin 8 carbon fork, but only because it was already cut to size and had a crown race pressed on... I'll get around to cutting the stock steel fork someday. Im really curious to ride it back to back with the carbon fork and compare the ride quality, the carbon fork really beats me up on my local trails that are very rocky and rooty, Oak Mountain in Birmingham, AL
