Afternoon all, I've been lurking on the forum un-registered for a few years now, mainly because I haven't had a bike worthy of the site. Having finally seen the error of my ways I've sold both of my Planet Flex bikes (one road/one TT) and have bought a bike that doesn't go sideways...

Felt AR0 by kieran.blair, on Flickr


A 2011 Felt AR0 56cm, Di2 only. I have kept my upgraded parts from my old bike, fulcrum racing 1's, Arione CX, ti skewers and pedals. The parts I still need are the Groupset, bars, stem and cages.

Thanks for looking, I'll keep this updated when I get new parts.

:welcome:

Nice frame. Weight before the build?

Keep us abreast of your build as it happens!

Cheers Guys. Decided to go with Zipp Service Course SL stem (alloy), I'm not a fan of the oversized carbon zipp 145, or 3T's offering the ARX LTD. I think both are vulgar! I have ordered Zipps SLC2 bar, as I will need to mount aero bars to the bike for races (Triathlon sprint/olympic distances)

@ Power Pete . The frame, including cage bolts/mech hanger/braze on and Di2 Cables (I don't want to remove them!) is 1,244g.

What I have to date...

Felt AR0 56cm Frame (including Di2 cabling)

Felt Aero fork

Felt Aero Seat post (damn heavy! - after market available?)
Image

Felt Seat post clamp (bolts are 7g)
Image

Zipp Service Course SL stem
Image

Zipp Stem bolts
Image

FSA Orbit CF Ceramic Headset
Image

Felt top cap + bolt
Image

Fizik Arione CX with Ki:um rails: 219g actual, 205g claimed! (cheeky buggers)
Planet X Ti skewers: 43g
Fulcrum Racing 1 wheelset: 1,489g (I will be getting either Zipp/Enve wheels in the near future)
Ultegra 11-23 cassette: 206g (Not weenie at all I know, will get DA or lighter soon)
Look Keo Classic pedals: 277g (Lighter looks eventually)

Thats it for now, just waiting for paypal to clear funds to my bank from ebay sales - as soon as thats done (2 days) I will order Di2 :D As I mentioned before it won't be a true weenie, but my weeniest bike to date! My aim was <6.8kg, I think it's going to come in around the 6.5kg mark.

Cheers, will update when bars arrive. Have a nice evening.

Awesome!
I had an AR3, as I wasn't allowed to stretch the $$ to get the AR0 - the black on black looks mad!

This is one bad ass looking frame. Can't help hoping you'll be able to keep the matte theme going with the rims as well, although you mentioned fulcrum clinchers ... Matte black carbon wheels seem to become available more and more.

Little heavier than I thought it might be, however I guess you don't go aero if weight is still the primary concern.

Very interested to see how this build pans out.


Out of interest, do you race? As some sort of racing comparisons would also be great to hear.

For the post you can tune it with new bolts and if you contact Berk, I bet he could set you up with some carbon parts. You can also cut the post to have just enough length to be safe inside the frame.

What aerobars are you going to be using on this for your tri's

I just finished adding some HED Clip-lites with some short S-bend extensions to my SLC and I am thinking of getting some custom carbon ones built to my specs which should only be about 120g max.

@wassertreter - Silver fulcrums on it to start, ENVE carbon wheels once we start stocking them in our shop.

@Tinea Pedis - I don't road race (Although I will be next year) currently only compete in triathlon. One of my colleagues road races on a BMC Team Machine SLR01 w/SRAM Red and he has ridden an AR0. He said it is noticeably stiffer than his BMC (I can get a more detailed review if you wish!) Having also ridden a Felt F1 he is looking at selling his BMC to get one.

@ BmanX - My ideas for aero bars were Zipp Vuka or Profile T2 Cobra. I haven't looked into weight/adjustability of bars yet, if there is something lighter and better do let me know. Thanks.

Another parts update, I now have everything minus the chainset/bb and cages (which I am yet to choose) To get the bike on the road asap I'll be running some 6600 ultegra brakes which I already have.

The perks of working in a bike shop...this was my steed for a triathlon at the weekend, very stiff and I threw it through the technical parts of the course with ease. With a field of 40 + people on TT bikes, and the majority of others with aero bars I was happy with 26th fastest bike split with a full road set-up. Mine will be better :D

And the parts, Di2 shifters

Zipp SLC2 bar, 44cm (zipp measure from outer edges, so a 42cm bar c-c)

Hopefully up and running saturday! :thumbup:
