Hello people. Does anybody know if Cris Fox is legitimate? I see he have a website an all but the price is a bit too low to be real.
Thanks a bunch.

Schwinn has practically all sizes and colours of the paramount still in stock and you're local lbs should be able to get you a fair price for them considering schwinn has lowered the price a bit to dispose of them. TTFN
I have a mixed review for you.Possum

I year or so ago he advertised a 2 year old titanium Kona mtb frame, in excellent condition for a reasonable price. It was excactly what I was looking for and a deal was struck. He sent the frame to me promptly. When I got the frame, it was obvious that it was much older than 2 years. It had a rear brake bridge and the year he advertised it as would not have, it would have come with v-brakes. I would say the frame was is "good" condition, not excellent. It is Ti, so it is pretty hard to really mess up the frame, but there was not a single sticker or otherwise to identify it as Kona, but there was the remains of some kind of sticker for a band on the frame.

I really was not impresseed with the product and was pretty pissed off that it was not as advertised. I contacted Cris and started off with a very negative tone. Cris was calm and collected and said that he didn't want to rip anyone off. He said if i didn't like it to just send him the frame back and he would return all of my money, which he did promptly.

Bottom line, I was impressed with the "service" he provided, but not the product.

I bought a supposedly brand new LX crankset from Cris a while ago for $45. Well they certainly had been installed and looked on the borderline of "brand new" and "like new". Plus the crank bolts were not included. His response was that he got them without bolts and he did not advertise as "bolts included". Well I did not argue and ordered some bolts from JensonUSA for $12 plus $5-6 for shipping. The final total was still a bit less than retail but it was a bit more hassle than I expected.

I also bought another bike part from Cris once and I got what I expected promptly.

Cris definitely isn't a ripoff, but you can't assume you are getting the same thing as from Coloradocyclist. On a scale of 10, I'd rate him a 7.5-8.

Some of the thing's I have gotten have been VERY good... others have been ok. Cris has GREAT service... you're not happy with something?? Let him know, he'll do his best to 'make it right'. I'm not sure, but I believe Cris is a broker... meaning he might not see 100% of everything he sells. Mailing a bike to him, only to be mailed somewhere else when sold, raises the price. Again, I'm not sure about this.
