since march 2002 i'm riding a ro.zona.
it's well made, rides great, the frame geometry makes an agile bike and the three layers of powder coating seem undestroyable. the frame was well prepared for building up.
buy it, without any doubt.
( and if that's important to you, you can be sure they are not made in south-east-asia)

I owned a 2001 FORT aero tt. I built it up as a time-trial bike but ended up selling it due to lack of use. very nice frame. the geometry suited me cause it was closer to typical roadie geometry so you didn't feel too out of place and didn't have to make a lot of adjustments with the saddle or stem. not the stiffest in the bb area but otherwise a solid frame. the powdercoat was indestructible.

I had an RO Zona that I just loved. It was classic geometry, fit me well (YMMV) and rode better than any bike I've owned. The powder coat is just great, you can't scratch those things at all. I ended up selling it because I had too many bikes, I realy regret selling that bike.

I also have the TT frame you are interested in. It's the best value out there (as are all of their frames) for an aero bike, IMO. Very stiff, welds are clean, and it's powder coated, too.

As the other poster mentioned, they don't miss the small details either. The threads are all chased, the headtube and seat tube are faced.

Gregg at Fort is really great to do business with and I can assure you that you will be happy with your purchase.

He's got an RO Zona on special right now that I would love to get, but no $. :)
