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

Alu Klein, Alu Cervelo, now what Carbon frame for under £1k

My last two frames Klein Quantum and Cervelo Soloist have been aluminum. But I'm seriusly considering getting a carbon frame and will transfer some components.

I'd like a carbon Klein (beautiful bikes) but they aren't made anymore. My Cervelo Soloist, while good looking, is no Klein but is lighter and faster.

Ideally I'd like a Cervelo R3 but can't afford a new one. The Cervelo RS is probably not sporty enough and again over budget.

So can I have recommendations for a high quality, fast and good looking carbon frame for under $1,600?

The new Felt FC looks like a great frame for $1500. The higher end version, F1, was ridden this past year by Garmin.
