Strengths:    It's fast
Build quality
Lightweight
Nimble handling


Weaknesses:    Brake levers are a bit cheesy.
Upgrade tires, if your performance oriented.
Handgrips


Bottom Line:   
Fast,fast,fast! Found this bike online and took the chance buying it sight-unseen. Overall build quality is great, components aren't bad, can't really complain for a bike that weighs just over 20 lbs(56cm), and the MSRP is a lot cheaper than other brands that are comperably equipped. Although I did modify it slightly by swapping out the stem and bars for a newer Easton stem and carbon bars along with stubby bar ends and added a 53/39 105 crankset. What a difference. Not only does the bike look better, but performance is better also. Next, will be tire upgrade to 23 or 25's instead of the 28's. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the purchase and now that the bike has had a diet (19.3 lbs), it's even better. If your in the market for a flat bar road bike, the only stop you need to make is at your local Felt dealer.

Custom built Shimano 11-speed 11/30 cassette advice

Hi Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I am about to convert my Di2 ten-speed setup to 11-speed. I have a compact 34/50 with rotor Q-rings which I used with the 12/30 Ultegra cassette on my ten-speed but missed the 11 for downhills (I live in the Alps and like to go fast). I have also ...

10 speed, 12-25 vs. 12-30

[COLOR=#000000][Edit: This was formerly the "10-speed to 9-speed" thread, in which friends convinced me that changing the rear cassette was a better option than changing the chain rings. The conversation was interesting; I hope you'll give it a look. DB] A friend asked me to post my reaction to ... Read More »

Centaur 12-30 with 11 speed C/R/SR rear derailleur?

Dura-Ace 9 speed triple - smaller 30 ring?

The 9 speed Dura Ace triple front crank is a 53/39/30. Can the 30 be replaced with a 28? Going to be headed to Europe and need a lower bailout gear even with the 12x27 in the back. I'm slow and like to spin. I recall that the Dura Ace triple was a bit of a different animal, though maybe it isn't ... Read More »
