I have one. The ride of the bike is good compared to my TET. It really needs a short fork though, like an older SID or Judy or maybe a rigid fork. If you want a 100MM fork, forget this frame. Fort does a great job with frame finishes - - - the powdercoat is really tough and the decals hold up. The tubing is butted steel, but not lightweight like say, Columbus Zona or Reynolds 853. I also think it rides a bit harsher than a frame built with those tubesets, but maybe I am spoiled. I think the frame is a tick over 4 pounds in a 17 inch size.
Now you should know I am very biased on this . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The SS frames are on sale now and Gregg is real easy to work with. He also has a few in the clearance section too. Information is on www.fortframes.com
