    My new warranty replacement frame

    Here's a pic of my '09 Felt with the FA frame. My Felt F85 frame was my second Felt aluminum frame to crack on me. The LBS told me that I must really be torquing it to destroying wheels and frames on climbs like that. This time it was also on the driveside chainstay but near the bottom bracket. After contacting Felt, the LBS told me that Felt didn't have any all-aluminum frames in stock. they had been sold out of 2009s since February so they upgraded me to the aluminum with carbon rear. It was a bit of a disappointment being that I needed an all aluminum road bike to pull a trailer periodically. Not only that, i'm still weary about being a Clyde on carbon. The fork is one thing but most of your weight rests on the rear seatstays and chainstays. That disappointment was gone the minute I saw this bike. Absolutely beautiful!! The failures that I have had have left me somewhat indifferent but it's hard to remain that way when Felt is such a great company that really stands behind their product.
