Felt F95 ?????
 
Anybody know anything about the Felt F95? I have read lots of reviews I just wondered if I am missing anything. I have read some not so good things about the Microshift levers, but other than that it looks like a good entry level bike.
Thanks again:thumb:

Felt has a good warranty.
I ride a F-85

Felt is a great bike, but I hadn't heard they had gone to Microshift on some models. I do know someone who raced as a Cat 3 Roadie for a full season on Microshift because of team sponsorship and he had no complaints.

Heck, a full Microshift set up of FD, RD, and Shifters is very appealing from a cost point of view from either Nashbar or Performance if you are trying to modernize an older steal frame.

EDIT: Excellent Avatar, BTW.

I've got a Z-80 that I've put about 2000 miles on.. Aside from upgrading the brakes, I haven't had any issues with it..

I'm sure the brakes would have been fine if I wasn't coming down mountains.. They just didnt' instill confidence with me..

Good luck, I'm sure it will be a great bike.

They do have a good warranty, but in my experience I had to use it a lot, I had an F55 that I broke within 10 months of buying, they replaced that frame for free, which I proceeded to break in 3 months, and they then sent me a F5 frame free of charge, so can't complain, but the aluminum frames may not hold up to well for larger riders (I'm 220 lbs, put about 5,000 miles on the first frame and ~2,000 on the second)
