The fork is different! And the top tube if horizontal!!!
If you go to the Japanese felt site, in the thumbnail, the fork looks like this picture, but if u click into the page to see the details, it is the same photo as the rest of the world, with the normal fork.
Ok, to clear up the stuff I said about the felt japan site, here is the link. Scroll down about halfway down the page.
look at the thumbnail picture of the Dispatch(ディスパッチ). It is the same as the straight fork, flat top tube picture I linked to. But if you click into the page detailing the bike, then it looks like the standard bike.
Our shop got pictures of the '09 Felt's yesterday. There is indeed a Red dispatch that looks pretty similar to the rendering above. There is another one but I'm remembering it as more similar to the '08 (or in other words, I remember it being grey or black, but could be wrong.) The '09 curbside is changing as well, There will be a light blue one with brown/tan houndstooth pad and saddle, with orange accents, and a white one with white rims. Also, all the forks are painted to match the frames. I'll see if I can get pics...
work fix, play fix, dk 20", cruiser, ******* parts
our locals dispatch tt is somewhere inbetween the two pictures earlier on this page, its nowhere near as sloped but its also not perpendicular to the headtube.
the sizing is quite odd as well, there is a very 'roadbike' stretch to the hoods that makes it feel kinda loopy.
i must say though that the colour sheme is much nicer than those renders.
