I had an '07 F85- which had a nice red paint job. That bike was a great bike to ride. In fact I rode it more than my Dura Ace equipped F55, because I preferred the all aluminum frame to the carbon rear setup. I cracked the frame about 5 weeks ago and Felt replaced it. I had feared getting that hideous white with ornage decals on the '09 F85. I contacted Felt to see if i could get the F95 frame instead because while i'm not a fan of the Team Issue colors being on an entry level frame, it looked a lot better than the colors on the
F85. Turns out that the '09 F95 sold like hotcakes and they only made a limited run of them. If you have one and need a frame replacement, you'd be stuck with the 09 F85 frame instead. As luck would have it, there are no more full aluminum F-Series frames available from Felt- meaning if you find an F95 or F85 at an LBS in your size, grab it or you'll have to wait for the 2010s to come out. Well, Felt actually upgraded me to the FA frame- which is the aluminum with the carbon rear. This would be the frame that you would get if your F95 frame cracked as well. In all honesty, you can't go wrong with an F95 or F85. The F85 has Shimano 105 components, which is the workhorse for the Shimano line up. It's not as polished as Ultegra or primo Dura Ace, but you'll have a 10 speed setup with race worthy components. I will get heat for that, but I went all the way to CAT 3 using 105 components back in the day. I would expect the same performance and durability in the new ones. Anyway, the F95 might have the lower end components, but the Team Issue paint job and limited run makes this one a great value now and in the long run. My LBS owners told me that people are still looking for the '09 F95. Yeah, it's kinda poser-esque (is that even a word), but so was the 2002 Trek 1000 and they still sell today for what they went for back in 2002 because they had the USPS colors. This F95 will follow suit especially since it not only has the colors but the decals too.
