Any Felt historians out there?

I have an opportunity to purchase a new 2005 Felt 1C frame or a new 2007 Felt F2 frame... for about the same price.

Given the traditional trickle-down technology, how do these two frames stack up? I currently have a 2007 Felt F2 frame and love it ... so, I know I can't go wrong there... but I am intrigued by the F1C. For one, I like the matte finish... (but, of course, I'm more interested in weight and performance).

Any thoughts or info would be appreciated. Many thanks!

The F1C is is lighter than your F2 if you compare the two bikes of the same size. From what I remember the F1C used a different carbon layup. Even the '07 F1 had a different frame than the '05 F1C. Not anything to be concerned with when you consider that the weight of the 05 F1C is probably lighter due to lighter components. I would bet that you still have the better frame on your F2.
