|A few weeks back I posted some questions about a used bike I was thinking about buying. It was not as great a deal as I thought and I passed. Thanks for the feedback.
Since then I've been looking a lot and had heard some good things about Fort Frames. I checked them out and found some a great deal on a closeout Columbus Zona frame. I am new to road bikes and had a ton of questions, so I called Gregg at Fort and he was incredibly helpful. He got me up to speed on going double vs triple, crank length selection, differences in steel tubings and frame geometries. And he was very patient with me as I waffled on component choices, colors etc...
I was all set to buy from Gregg until I found a great deal on something locally tonight. He was so helpful and had such deals though, that I wanted to recommend Fort to others. If you are looking for a well made, affordable road or mtb, check them out. Gregg will work with you to make sure you get what you need at a fair price.
I am in no way affiliated with Gregg or Fort, just appreciative.

|I agree. I talked to him last fall, when I was looking for a new frame. I decided on another manufacturer, but really liked the bikes. The UltraFoco and Starship frames had really great prices, but they are mainly for racers under 180 Lbs..

|I think Fort frames are simply the best kept secret out there. I've been racing for nearly 20 years, have had dozens of different bikes and think that Fort bikes are the equal of anything in their respective class.
I have an RO Aero frame that rocks and I have an RO Zona on the way. I can't wait to get it. My first Fort was an RO Zona, but to make a long story short, I had to sell it. Doh!
Yes, Gregg is a great guy, he also is very supportive of the NorCal racing scene, so he gives back to the community.
Too bad you didn't actually buy a Fort, you would have been very happy with it (not to imply that you made a poor choice, just that the bikes are really nice) :)
