Felt Bikes... Any comments?jtkirk15

I am considering the F75 specifically. Does anyone have firsthand experience with this bike? It seems to be well spec'd for an entry-level type bike. Thanks for your thoughts/opinions.
Anyone, anyone?? (nm)jtkirk15

Yes, It's a joke. Sorry, I've seen Felt bikes but I've never ridden one.

I had two interpretations of your response.

1. The bike is so sweet I kissed it.

2. Felt? Who cares, let's make a joke.

What do you think of them? Seems like not many people have experience with them. I think they look good. We'll see how they ride later today.

I own a Felt TT bike. I don't know how much its changed recently, but its about five years old. I bought it during my "need the lightest of everything" phase, and ended up cracking the frame where the seat-stay connected to the wishbone behind the seat-tube. Anyway, they replaced it free of charge so I can't complain much. I also relegated it to part-time duty, maybe only using it ten times a year for TTs and nothing else. That being said, its pretty flexy for an aluminum frame although I'm sure the aero downtube has something to do with it. Its comfortable as TT bikes go and the geometry made getting stretched out easy. It also looks really cool with the mat finish.

Just got back from test riding the Felt F75 at Bonzai Sports in Falls Church, VA. The bike was extremely light for the price (21#, $800) and it rode well although it was a short ride. The shop said that they'll do lifetime adjustments to the bike, full fittng to the bike and free installation of future parts regardless of where I purchase them. How does this deal sound. Of the bikes I've been on, it has felt the best. I still need to ride a Giant OCR3 and 2. I'll try to ride a Trek 1000 too. OK, just wanted to provide an update. I'll keep you posted.

Here in Aus the current issue of Bicyling Australia (www.bicyclingaustralia.com) has a review of the F65 (which I think has Sora but would likely have the same frame).

If memory serves I think they liked it, saying it "felt nice to ride", hah hah, and that it wouldn't look out of place upgraded with Ultegra gear. They seem to like the frame I think.
