Felt TK1... has anyone ridden one?

Just interested to see if anyone has any first hand experience riding the Felt TK1?

What did you think?

I had one. I kept it for a month. I had issues with the Ritchey seat post tilting down on me.



I wouldn't buy one for sprinting. The fork rake is 40mm. For mass starts and pursuits, it'd be OK. It was designed for pursuit specialist Sarah Hammer. There are better sprint frames available.

Borrowed one for junior nats once. It's damn fast. I rode pursuits/omnium, so I can't comment on the sprinting aspect.
