Ease of installation

I purchased the frame through the bike shop direct from the felt dealer. Was the last one available. Bike Doctor Waldorf (Chris) helped me through the process of selecting my own components to build my custom-made bike to my specifications.

Ease of use

Riding in the aero position took some time getting used to after doing so many races on my road bike. After some ride time, I felt the world of difference between the two frames.

Quality of Construction

All Carbon, Ultegra components, Profile Aero-design aerobars, Mavic Wheels, Profile design padded seat. This bike was made for speed and durability. The only thing missing is aero wheels which I plan on buying here in the near future.

(5)

Fit

I looked at the Cevelos, Orbea, Kuotas but after doing a specialized fit with Chris and looking at my particular physiology and measurements, this was the perfect fit for me.

(4)

Comfort

Comfort riding in aero takes some time getting used to. I just went into the shop for an adjustment after a year and we found some things that could use a bit of tweaking. Since then, my rides have been much more comfortable on my shoulders/hips and have even seen an increase of speed. Highly recommend a yearly re-adjusmtent or re-evaluation to ensure proper seating angles.

(4)

Adjustability

As stated above, adjustments were tailored to my own body type and was seamless in the process. No major issues.

(4)

Durability

This bike is extremely durable. But I typically ride it on race day and use my regular road bike for training rides instead.

(5)

Value

The bike packs alot of value for a mid-tier tri-bike. I added components that increased its value but the frame itself is more than affordable for those looking at the ~2500 tri-bike range.

(5)

Appearance

As far as looks goes, this bike is a stunner!! Every race I go, I receive compliments on its look! The clean crisp and aero lines give it a sexy appeal that is unmatched. EVERYONE has a Cervelo and this bike is a good change of pace. I may not be the fastest but at least I look COOL!! =)

Customer Service

Kudos to Bike Doctor Waldorf (MD) for providing top notch service. We have plenty of bike shops in this area but I chose this particular store because of the impeccable service and concern displayed by each of their associates. Chris (owner) has great knowledge of bikes and I rely on his expertise for many of my purchases. If your are in the DC/MD/VA area, go here if you are in the area and want QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

Performance

Performance wise, this is an amazing bike. I can't say enough good things about it. I more than keep up with my bike group crits and can't wait to get out there to ride again!

Strengths

Appearance. Performance. This bike is HOT!!

Weakness

Other than minor adjustability issues I can't think of any.
