Went to my LBS today to ask about sizing for mine and my wife's future road bikes. She is currently on a more slant tube bike and is only 4'11' so we were concerned about stand over when the time comes.
We were asking questions and checking out the Specialized Dolces and also checking out the sizing of the Secteur Comp Apex for myself, when I asked about the Felt bikes which my LBS also has. I had noticed when researching online that the Felts seemed to have a much lower standover in the same frame size then the Specialized bikes, and I wanted to see the difference in person. (The top tubes are indeed lower, btw).
After continuing to talk about bikes for a bit, our LBS guy offered a really good deal on the Felt Z4, since they wanted to start clearing out their 2012 Felt stock. He was willing to sell it for $2000 (MSRP is $3199, the LBS normal price is $3099). So I did a test ride of the Z4 and also a Comp Apex Secteur so I didn't end up with buyers remorse since I've been looking at the Secteur for the last month.
So what started as just an information gathering mission for FUTURE road bike purchases ended up with us taking a new road bike home for me. I just couldn't pass up a carbon frame with Ultegra components (but 105 brakes) for that price.
I did a quick test ride when we got home before it got dark and rainy and was very pleased with how it handled a hill on our route. Pics to follow.
