    I have a custom 2006 Zinn magnesium frame road bike set up for triathlon and a big semi-custom touring bike, the frame of which is a 1983 Apollo Prestige XL.

    Are Naked (formerly Forte) bicycles any good?

    I know the owner of Naked Bikes won awards at the NAHBwhatever and Armstrong bought that abomination of a bike and for some, that is enough proof of quality.

    I, however, am still unsure of whether or not to buy from this company. I need a BOMBPROOF touring bike that can be used for everything from international tours in developed and undeveloped regions to going for groceries and speeding off to work in the mornings. Who's got a Naked bike or some useful info that can't be easily gleaned from the internet on this manufacturer?

    Is Sam (the owner) good at ensuring the bikes he makes are decent and functional or is that just a "plus"?

    You may get a response if you post this on the Framebuilders Forum, or maybe the Road Cycling Forum.
