its heavier than the tk3, carbon, and the price of a tk2
Belt drive compatible too. Should be lighter however.
...rather have an older tk2.
Still, I'd ride it.
Regarding the weight difference between the Footprint and TK3: Don't forget that the Footprint has some budget (read: not light) brakes, brake levers, and brake cables.
UHC carbon is pretty dense stuff. That's probably where the weight comes in.
I say don't dis it till you test ride it. This bike could be the first of a trend. Also, it's one of 10 (TEN) single speed / fixed / track bikes that Felt is offering us. That's way more than any company I can think of.
I dig too.
Also, props to Soil_Sampler for sharing various SSFG related bikes/parts with us.
i've wanted the breed ever since i first set eyes on it.
this? not so much.
Interesting that they seem very willing to do the spaghetti method of product development - throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks - vis a vis their ss/fg offerings.
Looks fine to me, wonder how it rides, probably a lot like my Vilano, only with a little more quality and workmanship in smoothing out the rough edges ?
Ouch, then I saw the MSRP $ 1,599, can I get some pedals with that ?

It looks kinda cool until you look at the price, then it suxxxx
That's the thing that gets me about these types of bikes, I think Trek makes a SS Madone similar to this. Why would anyone want to cop out that much money for a bike that they won't be racing or has no ability at all to be raced? I know it's not all about racing but here's the thing; they can A)get a track bike better suited for their needs for less money B) they can buy a geared bike better suited to their needs for less money or C) if they aren't interested in racing or anything they can just get a nice steel SS that will better suit their needs and cost less money.
Felt also makes this now
that stem is uggggggllly
mammoth feet to go inside those clips.
I really like what felt is doing in the single speed realm. That Breed is awesome! wow.
