Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Show me some FELTS!!

I dont see a whole lot of felts out there and I have recently, after a lot of research and test riding, have a fallen in love with them. I actually have an F75 on order which will be my first road bike. Im extremely excited about it. But while I wait I would love to see all of your felts out there.

Maybe they just don't feel like finding a photo of their bike and posting it here simply because you asked? Or since you already are buying one anyway? Or they are at work and all their photos are at home?

I have a newly purchased F80. Have not had it out on the road yet. Seems well built with a full 105 drivetrain. Test rode Felts, Treks and a Giant. All felt the same to me, but then coming off a mtn bike anything would feel good. Bought it because the price was to good to pass up. No pic available at the moment.

I had an F65 but got rid of it for the bike you see in my sig. Anyway, here's a pic of my old bike. I owned it for about 6 months and 1200 miles before trading it (plus a few hundred cash) for my new bike.

My S25. Please disregard the "dork disc" - it's been removed since the picture was taken.

I picked up a Felt F65 frameset on eBay for a song. Built it up with all Campy Chorus (also obtained, at something far below wholesale, on eBay) and the result is quite delectable. I'll post a picture at some point. Not as much bling as a $5,000, all CF, just-like-they-rode-at-the-Tour featherweight, but as moderately priced framesets go, I think this one is a winner. Light, fast, and super comfy. Fits me to a tee. Just hope those pesky aluminum/CF bonds hold up for at least a few years.

I just got my first road bike in august. It is a Felt F-80. I love it, but i have put over 1000 miles on it, and it needs some TLC which I just haven't had the time or money to give to it recently. Someday, I want to own a B2.

Here's me on my Felt F2C about 2 minutes after I crashed in a crit. Too bad the photographer was on the right side since all my road rash and blood was on the left. (Notice left brifter)

Fractured elbow & 11 stitches have been healing well for 10 days. I should be back on the bike in a week.

LOL!!!

What would happen if we all started threads based on our bike choice?

I am currently looking at buying my first road bike. Not sure if I shoud go for an F100, F80 or F65. I have been told that the F100 is a good entry level, but I am afraid that I will outgrow the bike too quickly then I will have to fork out more $$ for a new bike. I am leaning toward the F65 since the LBS havs a big discount on the F65 at the moment.

I will post a pic of the bike one I buy it.

Here's my F90 and me in the Hilly Hundred last year. It's also my first road bike. I'm currently looking at the F65 and F75 models as an upgrade though (also the Scott Speedster S20).

Wow, If I knew a Felt could do the dishes I would have made a different choice on rides.
