Quality of Construction

Had some issues with cracks in paint on forks, and had fork replaced twice in 5 months.

(4)

Fit

54cm is a good fit for me at 5'8", 163 lbs.

(4)

Comfort

Good fit, adjustable as time goes by and I get more comfortable with a more aggressive fit.

Adjustability

Durability

We'll see. Bottom bracket came loose during my first OLY race after 700 miles. Cassette was loose after 500 miles. Wheels holding up well so far.

(5)

Value

Best bang for the buck. Got it for under $1000 brand new, but 2006 stock.

(5)

Appearance

Everyone says red bikes are fast, but I love my blue bike. It loves to go fast with me.

Customer Service

Miserable. Jay Duehring, customer service manager for Felt, is very difficult to deal with. You must stay on him daily to get things moving along, questions answered, etc. Worst part of the experience.

(5)

Performance

So far, so good! It's enabled me to be a better runner off the bike and given me some strong bike splits in my three races thus far in 2007.

Strengths

Ultegra and 105 components on a sub-grand bike. Cheap wheelset (but I plan to upgrade to nicer race wheels eventually, these work fine for training). Clunky aerobars (again, a planned future upgrade). Wish it had a downtube bottle mount. I knew at the start of 2006 that I wanted this bike, so I saved for a year and found it in 2007 (2006 closeout).
