    Nice bike!....................Taking a brand new bike on a century before it's been tested and tried on shorter rides, not nice!

    It is exciting with the new bike but it can be a gamble. Saddle might kill ya after 50, can't tell on a 25 miler. The wheels might go out depending on the shop that sold it. Everybody swears by their shop but I've had wheels go wrong after 100 miles.

    A word of advice, take some electrical tape or a roll of rim tape with you. I've had rim stirps move aside after several mile causing a flat form the spoke holes. I was leaving an orginaized once ( in the desert). Ran into 3 riders with new bikes. Shop said they would be fine but one had bad strip and the other a croooked wheel. It was lucky I drove by as the support vehicle was in cause it was getting late. Still had 10 miles to go and the sun was starting to set. Good riders, just mechanicals slowed them down. I gave them my tubes, fixed the strip and the flat, trued the wheel so that they could get back before sundown. Shop told them the bikes would be fine.......Have fun!

    That bike is fast.

    Be sure you know your local speed limits.

    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Very awesome looking. I'm looking forward to a ride report from your century to see how everything fared for 100 miles.

    That's a sweet looking bike. I've only ridden one Felt, but I loved it. If anyone around here sold them, I'd probably own one.

    Only thing I'd suggest is swapping the seat from your old bike for the century ride. I shudder at the thought of jumping on an unfamiliar saddle for a long ride.

    Thats a nice looking bike. I got 2 more weeks before my Secteur arrives. 12 inches of snow certainly helps my anxiety.

    Again, that Felt looks like a dream.

    Thats a nice bike Eric! Considering getting the same one myself. Still undecided about the Felt or perhaps a Scott. Did you get that from Wallys?

    Yes I did. Wally is a good guy. I got the Felt because for the money you get better components. the Scott in the same price range comes with tiagra.
