Is any information out yet on what Felt is doing with their 2009 line up? I'm currently weighing the differences between the F55 and F75 - and now wondering if I should hold out for when the next years are available OR then maybe find a 2008 on closeout.

Thoughts?

I couldn't find any new 2008 F55's/75's/85's in my size (58cm) in SoFL... I also had my LBS contact Felt, who idvised them that no F's were in stock until the 09's ship out n August. I don't expect anything drastic, otherewise we may have heard something already.

I ended up getting an '07 from the classifieds. Should be here by the end of the week!!!

the guy at the shop just mentioned that to me today (about prices going up) and i read it in a thread here today. is that because of the cost of oil? that sure complicates things for me...
yea it's from oil... That may have a little bit to do with it. But seriously, what doesn't get more expensive from year to year??? Anyways, I bought a used F75 of the 'board, and I am awaiting eagerly for it's arrival!!!

Unless the shops have an '08 sitting in front of you... you ain't gonna be able to order one. Gonna have to wait for the more expensive '09s...

found out that they are dropping the F55 in the 2009 line. the F75 is going a few hundred higher and is a compact. sure doesn't help my decision making, unless any of you have a F4 or 55 you want to unload to me in 54cm :)

what??? The F's all had the same frame!!! The components were the only difference between F55, F75, & F85s... So, does that mean no DA, or some kind of mixto group???

Actually, not all F's use the same frame. The F75 and F55 use the same frame- aluminum with carbon seatstays. The F85 uses the same aluminum but it's all aluminum. There are no carbon pieces on an F85 frame.
