Tree Fort Bikes?

Has anyone bought from Tree Fort bikes? They have a sale on 2019 Warbirds now, and I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on one. What was your experience with them? Would you buy again?

I've bought parts from them since the website makes price matching easy and they had something else that was cheaper than other site.
its a real shop in Michigan and the shipment came to me without issue.

Basically, it was a transaction like anyone expects.

Nowadays it's hard to get ripped off if you pay by credit card. But regardless, tree fort is a legit place to buy. You can also give them a call and they pick up the phone right away.

Thanks for the responses everyone. Helps to here stuff like this when dropping this kind of $. Apparently they are an authorized Salsa dealer too.

I bought a helmet from them a couple years back. No issues at all. I would buy from them again.

Yeah, kinda cool having them as a local bike shop. Nice to be able to shop on line and support local too. ;-)
(well, except I have to pay state sales tax, oh well).

Yes, I've bought from them a couple times - parts, not bikes. Zero issues. Good online retail, IME.

Tree Fort is around 10 miles from me. They are absolutely legit. I have a 2012 Surly Crosscheck that I bought the frame and fork from them, and a 2017 Salsa Warbird that I bought as a built bike. Great shop, great people.

Super nice! They have a shop in Ypsilanti a couple miles from me. Down to earth folks, so I order a lot of stuff to pickup there because they have tons of online inventory.
