After riding a lot of different bikes in shops, I am thinking about ordering an Airborne Zeppelin on line. What kind of experience (good or bad) have any of you had with their sizing, support staff, quality, delivery troubleshooting etc?

I'm on a Valkyrie for the second year now.

Everything from Airborne has been top drawer all the way.

Love the company ane the bike.

I also am on my 2nd year with a Valkyire, great bike, shop and service. I have not one qualm about recommending Airborne!

My first and only road bike (bought it early 2001), but it's been great and does everything I need it to do. Light, comfortable, low maintenance, looks sharp, and delivered on time. The only bike lust I have is for a dedicated Tri bike, I plan to ride the Zep for a long time. Airborne service is excellent and they do lots of small extras above and beyond what you'd expect. I've bought cables and a seatpost from them after my bike purchase, all good experiences.

I haven't been professionally fitted, but from everything I've seen and read, my bike fits me extremely well based on their sizing recommendations over the phone. I get lots of positives comments from people on it when riding, lots of questions from people thinking about buying one, but you don't see many on the road. Great product, service, and value (although more expensive now than when I bought mine), can't say a bad thing about it.

I had a Lucky Strike mtb a few years ago. The entire ordering, shipping, service process was perfect. No issues at all. The bike came well-adjusted and ready to ride, after installing a few bolt-ons. I liked the ordering process, going through and picking out exactly what you want. No bs whatsoever.

They seem to offer fewer component choices than they used to, and prices have gone up. I'd still consider an Airborne, though.
