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.

old? new? F2? FC?

I'm in the market for a new bike, but my wife is more frugal than I, so along with the bike shop, we've been looking at ebay. Right now there is a 2010 FC on ebay at a pretty good price, with older DA and other solid bits and pieces. What I don't know, and what I can't figure out, is how the FC ... Read More »

Help with Shimano FC-6500 Chainring options

My front chainwheel is a FC-6500 with 53/39 chanirings on a 1999 9spd Lemond Zurich. Would like to swap to lower geared chainrings. A few years ago I geared down by swapping out the cassette for a Deore LX AR group 11/32 cassette and a long cage derailleur. Now it's time to get rid of the 53/39 cha ... Read More »
