Felt F series

Searched Felt and get 40 pages of results.... and then can't search F4 beacause it's too short.

Sooooo, does anyone here ride the Felt F series? Especially the F3-5. I'm now looking at this as one of the best new bike options but thought I'd see if any bigger riders were riding them and what they thought of them.

I'm also especialy interested if anyone does have one, if they can take 25mm tyres? I was recently set on buying Cervelo but for various reasons, that's changed.

Yeah, I know the F75-100s will take them. I'm more specifically chasing info on the 2012/3 F3-5s. I found a post somewhere about a 2009 with an Enve fork rather than the felt fork that was fine.

When I was keen on the Cervelo R3, I tried my wheel in the fork and no go. Rear was close but ok. Thinking that because the F series are race orientated, they might have the same problem.
