IRO Phoenix

Iro Cycle, which assembles single-speeds and fixed gears from its shop in Middleburg, Pennsylvania, has come out with the Phoenix, a relaxed geometry steel frame that is available as a three speed for $650 plus extras as they build it up for you. The frame includes mounts for two bottle cages and rack and fender mounts. It accepts 700 x 38cc tires, or 32c with fenders.

Here's hoping that IRO will restore its build-a-bike application on its website so customers can play around with the design before placing an order.

IRO Cycle

IRO Cycle makes custom fixed gears and single speeds from their family-run shop in Middleburg, Pennsylvania (they were formerly on Staten Island). They make an "inexpensive bicycle that’s lighter, simpler, quieter, and more elegant -- a thrill to ride and a breeze to maintain."

The great thing about IRO is that you get to design your own bike using the tools on their website. I designed the Rob Roy pictured above and selected some cool extras, such as painted rims. The total cost still came to less than $900. The best way to check out the price and specs is to build the bike using their website. No purchase necessary - you can simply email the picture to yourself or a friend.
