Surprised how beautiful it looks with the cronos - non-aero frames don't rock deep section wheels for me, and is it just the angle or does it not look like you'd be better rotating the bars forward and the shifters back?

really nice bike you have there. The shape of the handlebar however doesn't seem to fulfill your needs; maye you should try a different model with more reach so you can use the drops again.

Just to get it out of the way: yes you definitely need to do something with the handlbars...rotate them down and shifters up maybe? Also an enve step would look pretty sweet.

I like the enve wheels. But honestly, I think the massive china wheels in the first pictures look the biz. Those things combined with the very traditional geometry of the felt looks sooooo nasty.

Hey, can you comment on the ride of this frameset. I am in the market for a new race frame and I'm considering either one of these or a c'dale super six (among other things) How is the stiffness, and handling? Looks killer by the way!

Switched the saddle to a quite rare Tune Komfort+ wit silver leather. Will change the bartape accordingly when the current one is used up. Added a nametag with flag for the pro look. And - just perhaps :mrgreen: - I'll switch the bars to something different. Position remains good though.

@rule5: Haven't logged in too many miles with this bike but what I can already assure you is that for crits, this FELT is definitely the better bike over my last years SL3. Will keep you posted.

Swing into Western Bikeworks - they have a leftover 2011 F3 in a size 56. That's the bike I took for a test ride that made my decision for me. I am LOVING the ride, handling, and character of my '12. Put 70 miles on it today and man, this thing just flies!

You have got some great looking bikes! and I love the bar tape and hoods on that tarmac, I've actually thought of doing that myself.
