Welcome to the forum! A very nice pair of road bikes. Any lightening projects in the future? Do you favor one over the other?

Two cracking bikes, particularly like the Fuji!

Interesting to see the bad weather bike has carbon wheels instead of the nice weather bike.

Yeah you are right. ive put the wheelset onto the bike just to take a bunch of pictures. Now they're stored in a corner and waiting for the next race season.


Right now im running my Shimano WH RS80 C24 CL on the Felt paired with SKS Raceblade's.

Thanks for the warm welcome. :thanx: As for now ive already changed out a bunch of parts on the Fuji. Im running a new Fizik Kurve Bull. As well as a new pair of Look Keos and Conti 4000s II 25mm tires.

In the future ill try to buy myself a pair of these bad boys. But since i have signed up as a FFWD Ambassador maybe ill manage to ride them for free...
We'll have to see what the next season brings. Image

After having a mid-serious crash with a car something over 2 months ago im not riding the Felt as much as i used to. This also might be due to the fact that the toptube is a lil bit too long for my needs. And since I love riding longer stems due to the more stable handeling im more keen on the Fuji. And to be honest, who doesnt prefer his new bike over his old one ?

Love the transonic. I never thought such a muscular frame would look so good with shallow wheels.

I agree! Not only do the F2A look solid they also ride like a charm...

Been thinking about making the fuji look a bit more stealthy. What are your opinions about it ? Recreated the way it would look using photoshop...

Small update on my bikes. Sold the Felt due to rare use and i needed the cash for some other things.

Now here comes the most disappointing thing that has occurred over the past few weeks. The Fuji frame set cracked just between the bottle cage bolts. Super bummed about this. But since its still under warranty ill receive a 2016 model, which isnt all too bad.

Ill try posting a picture of the damage later on...
