    2014 felt AR

    Fallen in love with the looks of this machine, been drooling over it at the bike shop(ar5). Are any of you guys riding em? Not interested in the FRD but the other bikes 2-5 are the same frame set. I may wait till later in the year to see if the prices go down, but i am interested to know what you guys think of em.

    I have a 2014 AR4. I got it in mid November, and I love it. I am a newbie to road. I started mid year 2013. This is only my 2nd road bike, so no expert opinion. I chose it as the geometry is more aggressive than the Z series but less than the F series. The fact that it's an aero bike is just icing on the cake to me. I will take any help I can get. I don't race just recreation and benefit rides. I rode it on the 207 (Phoenix to Rocky Point Mex.) on Feb. 8th and 9th and felt fine. I have no complaints at all.

    I picked up my Felt AR5 about a month ago and have about 500mi on it so far, I highly recommend it. I was reading somewhere that Felt has sold every new AR they built with exception of a few AR3 frames, meaning they are either in shops or on the road. Finding the right frame size might become a challenge in a few months, and they will likely by sold out by the time prices usually drop in Autumn.

    As far as the bike itself, like I siad above I highly recommend it, I have been racing for a few years and riding much longer then that. This thing is far smoother then any aero frame I've ridden. It's fast in a straight line and responsive through corners. Due to snow in the mountains around here I haven't had a chance to ascend or descend any big climbs yet.
