Colorado springs peeps- CS West a good shop?

I ask because they've got free shipping and a great price on something I'm looking for, but I don't want to give them mah money if they're not reliable/reputable/etc.

Figure the transaction involves a frame and shipping.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I actually live in Colorado Springs, and I love the shop, I've never purchased from them online but I know the owners personally and they are very reliable and reputable.

I have purchased from them on eBay a few times and they are great. Usually see it the next day as I am just up the road, but they ship quick.

Well, the frame arrived undamaged, fast and as promised, so thumbs up to CS west.

Also very helpful during the ordering process- didn't know exactly what size i needed, they worked with me on the phone to make sure everything was right.

So, big thumbs up. I'd order from them again. And may, as my LBS's stock none of the stuff I need for this build...

I'm glad to hear the report. I met with them a few times while attending BBI last year, and was impressed. I broke my mug that I got from them and plan to get another on a trip this summer.
