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.
