I have the chance to buy a new 2009 Felt F4 SL for $2000 at my LBS. Is this reasonable or should it be lower because it's two year old tech already?

Of course, I will also look at the 2011 F5 with the newest 105 component set. They retail around $2000 as well.

What would be the better bike assuming both fit me fine? Is the 2011 frame much better than the 2009?

Thanks in advance :)

The frame on the 2011 F5 is incredible and better in every category to the 2010 F1 SL frame.

The F5 frame is the same one used on our $1600 FC frameset. It is a leap forward in tech, not an incremental step.
