Just finished up my IRD Circuit Racer. It was my buddies bike and I used to ride with him/it all the time in Santa Barbara in the early 90s. I moved away and talked to him for the first time a few months ago and asked about the bike. He said he bought a new Yeti full sus and hadnt seen the IRD in 10 years! He told me it was buried in the back of his garage and mintutes later came out with it and gave it to me! I got the frame, fork, original King HS, and brakes. I built it up as he had it in all black. Most of the stuff is older but not all of it..

1990 IRD Circuit Pro Racer 17" ST, 24" TT, 12"bb, 15.75"cs 72 ha, 75 sa
IRD Expedition Fork, King HS, IRD Switchback brakes,
Salsa stem, Ti bar, XT thumbshifters, SS7 brake levers,
Bontrager foam grips, XT bb, Race Face Cranks, IRD post ,
Flite seat, Hugi 240 r / King f / Revolution Spokes / Mavic 517 wheels,
600 r der, XC900 f der, XT casette and Sedis chain.

I got some pedals on it and its amazing how normal this things rides with such weird geometry. Enjoy.
