Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Have you shopped with Tree Fort?

I was on this little blog called BikeGenie and they said Tree Fort had the Pake frame for like 190.00 and i was wondering if anyone else had bought from treefortbikes.com because i want to build a cheap fixie and the 200.00 pake seems like a good f'in deal!

I have. They had great prices, no tax, and free shipping.

Shipping was fast BTW. I'll definitely order from them again.

I ordered a Thomson seatpost from them. Shipping wasn't too fast, but the price was great! Well worth it.

Just curious, are they a drop-shipper or do you all receive products from them?
