    Whats everyone think of the Felt TK3?

    Thinking about picking one up. Anyone own one? It feels amazing under my feet but I want insight from more people.

    The TK3 is ugly... also, not sure about the components. If you're looking at the TK2 though, you should also look at the Jamis Comet.

    I'd hunt eBay too, you can swing some really good deals.

    idig---I think you mean the Jamis Sonik. The Comet is a geared bike.

    I agree, though, the Sonik is a really nice bike, but I don't think you can go wrong w/ any of these bikes. I would probably go Sonik or Concept if I was looking at bikes in this category. Felt does make good stuff, though.

    Well I'll be buying a set of Sugino 75's here in pretty soon anyway along with a sprocket and I already have a dura-ace cog/lockring to toss on when I pick it up. I think that'll be the only money I put into it given that the bike has a full warranty for life and the LBS I'm buying it from also has lifetime warranty on repairs for their bikes.

    The TK3 is ugly, but seems a serviceable enough bike. The TK2, however, is extremely sexy.

    Hate the all red graphics but other than that it's a solid bike. TK2 is sex though.

    Well one of the girls working at the LBS is apparently able to convince Felt to do what she wants them to do so I may be able to get it in painted the same way as the TK2.

    Which would be sick.

    Gahhhh I wish I had the money I'd go up there tomorrow and order one.

    This thread can get deleted, I'm buying one haha.

    Go for that then, and see if maybe you can get a demonstration of said "persuasion" techniques.

    Then use that technique for all future purchases from Felt.

    yeah right. why would felt (or the taiwanese factory) stop the production line and make a one-off just for you and go against their product branding? If they're willing to do it, I bet it would be $$$.

    Nice review (with some outdoor shots of the paint scheme) here: http://cms.tarckbike.com/taxonomy/term/1

    One thing that I didn't see mentioned on Felt's site that's in the article was that its drilled for a front and has an option for a rear brake.
    Small-Ring Speed, Big-Ring Style.
