There is or was a company from Czech Republic that produced steel frames and forks. The name of this company is or was Fort.

  • Why can’t I find anything about this company or their steel frames and forks?
  • Where can I buy them?
  • Where are the specs?
  • Where is the companies website?
  • Do they still exist or did they change their name?

I tried to contact (via email) the assumed company website that can be found via search engines, but I got an error mail from Mail Delivery System which states that

edward@fortbicycles.com (ultimately generated from info@fortbicycles.com)
"No Such User Here"

So I still hope somebody here may know which one is the real company that formerly built steel forks and frames. And how I could contact with them.

fortbicycles.com is only a vendor in nothern America and not the manufacturer’s website.

This seems to be their website. It was the first result on Google when I searched for "Fort bikes". –  Kibbee Aug 13 '13 at 23:05

This question would be better answered by contacting the company. Kibbee's comment has a link to the company website. –  Neil Fein Aug 14 '13 at 0:01

@erik - I'm not a moderator, so no. I can't. But why can't you just type it into an answer field yourself? –  Neil Fein Aug 20 '13 at 1:03

I would like to answer my own question, as I have investigated and found some interesting facts. The vendor name for the Fort steel frames since the year 2008 is Intec. Search for Intec, and you will find all the old frames. In this forum thread user verreweg explains the differences since the renaming (the manufacturer’s name is still Fort): The new frames are cavity sealed, have a chemical pre-treatment with phosphates (phosphated) and new stickers with the Intec label.
