Felt Bikes -- Any thoughts, reviews?(8 posts)

Felt Bikes -- Any thoughts, reviews?robdob
Sep 22, 2003 11:44 PM
I'm considering purchasing a mid-level Felt as my first road bike.

Any Felt owners out there to convince me?

Thoughts/reviews?

Other bikes to consider?

Thanks!!!

I have a F65 which I like (it was my first road bike as well). The ride is good and it handles nicely. I just got a Look KG381i though and I am looking to sell the Felt. It is a 2003 with about 1,500 miles. I am asking ~ $500 + shipping for it.

Great value - aluminum frame, 105/ultegra mix for $1200...And it looks pretty good as well...

I test rode an F35 and really liked it. I ended up getting a Klein Quantum Race though because the total cost was cheaper with similar components (it was a leftover model 1.5 years old and I didn't have to pay the 10% tax since it was from out of state). The only negative I can think of is there is not much of a warranty on the frame. For many that is not an issue since they change bikes often, but I planned on keeping my for a long time. I think Felt and Fuji are two of the best in the bang for the buck department.
Put Raleigh in thereSpiderman

Raleigh also has great bang for the buck. People get a little snobby with the Raleigh name so they don't like riding them, but in all actually, they do some nice stuff. The mtn. bikes especially have great parts packages.
