    Apparently this guy had some problems:
    http://feltda-problems.com/

    As you probably know, the DA has the same frame as the B2. The only difference is the fork and the components (if you buy the full bike).

    I don't know if the web site author's beefs are legit, but if the information was untrue, I'm sure that Felt's lawyers would have made him take it down by now.

    BTW, I have a Felt bike and I really like it. But it's not a B2.

    Wow, that guy has a beef and some limited web skills and is not afraid to use them. The have sold a lot of these bikes and have gotten rave reviews, search slowtwitch dot com for DA or B2, lots of serious triathletes on there that can give you the plusses and minuses. I have seen a few at the local TT series and wow, what a great looking machine.

    i saw a b2 the other day at a triathlon i did on long island and it looks amazing. i've never ridden it, but it looks like a work of art. it looks very solid and well built. i have a lower end felt road bike that i love. i could only imagine the quality of that bike since it is so high end.

    I'd say the look is polarizing. I initially thought it looked really hot, but after I saw them in person, I'd just say the styling isn't subtle. Don't know what the ride is like though and I might be a little leery of first year model, but that's only anecdotal and nothing specific.
