reasonable prices (not as inexpensive as building it yourself,) excellent build qualities, fast shipping if they have your frame in stock.

downside - depends on you. If you're looking for a folksy bunch to shoot the breeze with, this is not the place to buy a bike from. to say they're "business-like" is an understatement. it's clear they want to do the deal and get it done. didn't bother me, because they had what I wanted and got it to me quickly. however, if you're looking to be pals with the guy you're buying from, look elsewhere.

I'd use them again if I wanted something they had it and didn't feel like building it.

I live near them, they have an awesome store... one of the best in all of NYC. Unfortunately, with internet sales being so high, their customer skills in the store are not always A+. The local reps say they're great guys, but I can't say that's always been my experience. I wouldn't reject them on that info though, they really know their stuff and have every piece of equipment you could imagine in stock. Hope it helps.
