the 135mm are the same as Kogswell and Van Dessel

If you look real close they are all the same but just finished differently.

I took my Kogswell frame with my Kogswell hubs to a local shop to compare to a built Van Dessel; except for color they hubs are the same. Tony from IRO freely admits that his are the same as the Kogswell's but he did not spend the extra money to have his company's name laser etched in them like KOgswell did.

OK, I just received my high flange set in the mail yesterday, direct from Tony. I am new to fixed gear, and of course have not laced or used these yet...BUT, I can say they look as good and solid in person as they do on the web. Really nice pieces.

Sorry no "in use" experience, yet.
