Strengths:    2013 FELT FC FRAME

This Frame is perfect for almost everything. (Except Aero). Its stiff, light, mimics the Felt F1, but doesn't have identical geometry. Its perfect for out of the saddle climbs, or hard sprints. It leaves you feeling good at the end of the day, while other similar frames beat the crap out of you. To me, it felt similar to the Cannondale SuperSIX but just a notch below the supersix evo... When equipped with the right wheelset, this frame is unbeatable for the price. At my LBS I grabbed this frame new for $1400. Better than the cervelo S2, S3 for stiffness -- especially in the head tube. Better than the R5 in the headtube as well... Great all around bike.

Weaknesses:    Paint schemes are bland. I had one problem for a while with the headset, but once it was replaced by Felt - it was a grand ride!

Bottom Line:   
All in all great frameset for the money. I've been on Specialized Tarmac SL4, Specialized Venge, Rode Cervelo for years, and this easily competes. Obviously, its not as pretty as a Pinarello.... but quality for the money - this cannot be beat.

Strengths:    Georgous, lightweight, smooth

Weaknesses:    Can't get replacement parts that match Original equipment

Bottom Line:   
My Felt FC was built from the frame up. It has Full Sram Red components, Felt bars, stem, Fuzion aluminum wheels, Adamo seat Felt 1.1 seatpost, Michelin Lithion tiires.
I loved this bike until I crashed it on some tracks and cracked the reynolds Ouzo fork. Ordered two replacement forks from Felt and neither matches the bikes carbon weave or finish. I'm very unhappy that Felt is unable to provide replacement components that match the bike. Before you invest $5000 or more in a Felt bike, consider that you will not be able to get replacement parts that match or return the bike to its original condition.

Zipp 202 or 303 FC for NYC and surrounding areas

I'm deciding between the Zipp 202 and 303 as my do-it-all-one-and-only wheelset. I'm currently running a pair of EC90 SLs, but the front gets a bit twitchy in x-winds. NYC isn't particularly hilly, but I do venture up to Bear Mountain occasionally. For riding in/around NYC, would the 202 or 303 b ... Read More »

Zipp FC 303 hub problems

I've had Zipp FC 303 clinchers for a year now, and "dialing in" the hubs is a constant annoyance. I have even thought about swapping the hubs out for something else... When the rear hub is loose enough so that the cassette wont spin when coasting, the wheel has what feels like too much play. Tighten ... Read More »

Zipp 404 FC Tubulars or Clinchers?

Given the choice would people take Zipp 404 FC Tubulars or Clinchers? They will be used as best wheels and living in the UK there are no huge sustained descents where I will overheat them.Read More »

Is Shimano FC 6703 Ultegra my only choice?

Trying to decide on a good triple for a titanium cross frame with drop bars. My newbie assumptions are: The Dura Ace 7803 seems to be old technology. XTR or XT are geared too low? And require MTB shifters or bar end. FSA has mediocre reliability. Campagnolo seems overpriced. Please set me straight ... Read More »

Zipp FC 303

I have a 2012 Paris. Thinking about getting a set of Firecrest 303's. I called both Zipp and Pinarello (Gita) and asked about any clearance issues. Neither could give me a definitive answer. So, is there any issues with this setup? Regards, NormRead More »
