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

Felt F90 for $680 out the door

or

Scott Speedster S50 $600 out the door

Which one?

The specs look very similar (at least from what I found on my google search), except Felt F90 has a Tiagra RD compared to Scott's Sora RD. The Scott has the slightly sloping top tube as well, which some people seem to prefer as far as fit goes. I would take them for a test ride and go with whichever one fits you the best.

This is truly the best advice and I do plan on giving both a spin. Thanks
