Frame just arrived today.
Will follow up with frame, fork and seatpost weights.
Planning to build it up with 9000, EE front brake, Archetype wheels and DA hubs, S Works crank and some Enve bits.
Carbon wheels need new bearings hence the trainers are on there.
More to follow...

crappy picture, but at least an update!
Weighed in at about 7.3 kg with H Plus Son wheels and Ti skewers and S Works saddle..
S works saddle snapped and I replaced the Ti skewers with DA ones, so this guy is a porker..
That said, solid ride..
I really do believe that Felt offers a really nice bike (complete build) and or frame set at a very reasonable price point...and with Super Dave lurking on this and various other forums, it is always a plus!

Frame was around 1110 g, and fork 350 uncut..If I remember correctly

Aren't AR frames supposed to be sub-900g? Or is that FRD only?
Oh, and brakes are direct mount?
Just the FRD are sub 900g, as it uses a different grade of carbon for the frame and does not have the ability to accept mechanical shifting systems.
Yes, just the rear brake is direct mount.

Thank you. Definitely a polarizing look, I agree. Would fall closer to an 18 k weave than a 12 k one. Also this carbon is called Textreme, made by a Swedish company Oxeon, nothing fake or cheap about it...
If one knows how much a sheet of Textreme costs, compared to "regular" hi-mod carbon, ha, they'd be shocked. No one uses them on bikes except for Felt. This material is usually used in aerospace and F1 applications. Those large weaves are what makes the carbon so strong, light and forgiving.
