Question about a bike model

Hey, I was looking locally for a bike for me to start out on, and I came across this felt bike. I emailed the owner and asked him what model it was, and he replied" I honestly don't know". So can I get some help on identifying this bike? Thanks

I know they make some quality racing bikes, but I don't know what that is.

Yeah, Ive been looking at the pictures on craigslist and the pictures of the bikes on felt's website but it is hard to compare. The sprocket looks like one of the ones on the BMX felt bikes. Its a mystery that hopefully someone can solve. I have the money to buy the bike, I just want to know what it is first.

Well, i guess im going to buy that one whenver the person gets back to me. Now he says it needs new bike cables and i know it has a gyro. I dont want to have a gyro on it though so can someone tell me or point me in the right direction as to how to install a regular rear brake and what i would need, im not sure how much everything cost's but i have 60 bucks in paypal and would like to buy a setup that fits that range unless there isnt. thanks

And, How do i know what size brake cable to use?

Also if anyone knows the name of the bike i still need to find that.

well taking a gyro of you just have to take the stem off and pull of all the little rings then buy a cable and run a new cable to the exsiting lever and brakes or you can buy new of what ever you want
