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

The Rabobank was kept as a frameset and is now hanging on a wall next to a genuine 2012 Bauke MOllema signed jersey from the Rabobank team

This is one of the hottest bikes I've seen this year on this thread... I like it's looks better than your C50, mainly due to the colorway. Not a fan of the looks of the M10, C59 or C60 look way hotter, just my opinion...

I'm curious how you attached the pump. Does stay perfectly in place when you ride?

Don't wanna repeat what's already been said, but yeah that bike is hot.

There is a standard pump peg on the head tube. These were common on bikes of the 1990s and earlier as frame pumps were common back then. The Campy pump head would normally cradle into the angle of the seat cluster, but I had two small pegs welded onto the seat tube just below the seat cluster to slightly increase clearance between the pump and the S&S couplers. The pump is custom fitted to the bike, so it's in there tight.

Love it! I just bought a 2013 F75 at my LBS. It was remainded stock but new, and at a closeout price, so it allowed me to buy my first road bike. The 2015 F75 is definitely a looker!

2013 Felt F75. Hoping to make some changes but not a huge fan of the paint job. I wish it had less striping!
