Strength:

Acceptable lightweight for riding and dual brakes. Great value-for-the-money price tag. Good job!

Weakness:

The triple crankset works hard when positioned on the front chainring to the rear chainring, basically crossing over. It works but the bike likes the middle chainring the best. The 2011 has changed to a double crankset instead.

My bike is actually the 2010 women's version ZW100, medium size. It is a fun bike to ride, responding well on both dry pavement and wet surfaces. Comfort was a critical factor in my search and this fit me well. Initially the main brakes were a fraction too far out for me so the store put in a spacer and adjusted the cables for a great fit. By adding this feature, I have confidence my hands won't grab at air the next time I'm flying down a hill and want to stop.

This bike also features secondary top brakes within easy reach, perfect for casual riding. I also tried comparable Giants but the Felt responded better and the size was a better fit. I upgraded to a different women's saddle and have not been disappointed. The bike is super comfortable.

I'm really enjoying this bike. Like the slightly higher handle bars, so I don't have to lean over as much. Also really like the second set of brake levers.

Weakness:

Replaced the seat with a Brooks B-17.

My bike is a 2009 model, but that year wasn't available in the pull down menu. Since in live in the hills of Arkansas and am a bit over weight, I had the 30 tooth chain ring changed out for a 24. It doesn't shift as nice as I"d like, but does the job. I bought the bike the end of May, rode it on Ragbrai in July. I have nearly 1,200 miles on the bike.

This is a 2009 Bike. It is great. Upgraded Seat and Pedals. I've owned a road bike for 15 years before changing to Felt Bikes. I've already put 225 miles on it and the only thing left is putting Aerobars on it.
