Felt F55 or Pinarello FP2 which one

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

Both are aroud the same price ( felt is a little more but local ) and both are carbon forks with alum / carbon frames .

Pinarello is ultegra their own rims and cranks .. a little shorter to tube
Felt is dura-ace and Mavic Aksium rims

Well, I mean I think the Pinarello has more bling but i bet they're both of the same quality. I'd go for the Dura-Ace bike but fit trumps everything. If they fit the same...i'd say go dura-ace.

F55 is nice but can be a little whippy for a bigger (say over 180lbs) rider. Never ridden the Pin, probably a solid rig too. I'd take the felt, though, Pinarello has a name to sell on, Felt just has quality and value.

Do you sport a sweet pony tail, wear leather shorts on shorter rides, sit cross legged, and enjoy drinking coffee out of little tiny cups? If so, Pinarello.

Why wouldn't you buy a Specialized?
