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 AR5

Does anybody know the claimed or actual weight of the 2010 Felt AR5 frame/fork? How does it compare to the AR1/team?

If the website is to be believed the weight difference is 140 grams. Which makes you wonder if 500.00 dollars is worth <1/3 of a pound weight difference and the swanky paint job. I would say yes but then again I love the red and black paint.

Are the two made of identical carbon? The felt website is just full of acronyms when it comes to the material and don't really explain the difference between the two.

The AR1 frame uses higher grade CF, at least in part, and weighs less. That's pretty much the difference.
