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.

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 »

10 Speed versus 30

Hey guys, narrowing down my research pretty well with all the help you guys have given. Thank you for that! Most of my riding will be on flat lands (minor hills at most). Is there any need to go with a 30 speed? Most are 10, but every now and then I see a 30 pop up. Also... Is the $300 / li ... Read More »

What's a decent average speed for a 30 mile loop? Mixed terrain...

What do you consider a good average speed. No drafting, for a 30 mile loop with combined, hills and flats and slight inclines. Basically rolling hills. No big downhill sections. I'm currently back up to about 19.4 average. I occasionally do around 20-21 with a tail wind or no head wind. By the ... Read More »
