I really dig the new geometries! The '11 Felt F1 is the first production bike I've seen with a short enough head tube to fit me properly. I'd even have to use a spacer! :thumbup:

And it just so happen that my Scott Addict with a cracked top tube needs a replacing... :mrgreen:

Just a heads up to anyone wanting Caad10esque features without going Cannondale, I believe Dave said the F75(and I'm guessing the FA frameset) are BB30 compatible and have a tapered steerer.

Thanks, you are right.

The F75 and FA frames have moved to the tapered 1.125" --> 1.5" for. The same one used on the F4 level carbon bikes and the same monocoque mold and construction method as the F1. The F75, F15x, F75x, and S22 7005 aluminum frames have all moved to BB30 compatible shells.

Oh dear, i don't personally think this colour scheme is good for this frame. I love the garmin transitions team colours and before that the Chipotle was fantastic, but imo the frame is the wrong shape for the black on black thing. Other frames such as the Dogma and EPS colnago it's fine but I'm not sure about the AR1.

Personally, I quite like this colour scheme as well:

The cable routing can be for either Di2 (internal):

Did anyone else notice the differences between the DA that the pros ride and the one pictured in the catalogue and white paper? The swan S downtube is gone and replaced by a standard front wheel cutout. What's the deal?

This is my favourite from a couple of years ago. 2009 one I believe I don't personally think this frame should be kept plain coloured as in the black-black example above. But apparently the handling isn't as good as the later ones now ie '10 and '11 models. But to me, that is just gorgeous. Apologies to whose pic it is though ...

Yeah I am also very interested in this. There is a thread going on ST about it. Hopefully SuperDave will give us an idea behind the change if there is one?

any second now... come on man, we know you're reading these forums, tell us more about the 2011 Felt lineup.


I'm happy to answer any of your questions. I'm sure you don't want me to just blab some prepared marketing material or repost our press release. What are you interested in exactly?

SuperDave is the pricing for the F1 frameset confirmed at $2799? Also when will it be available at the LBS dealers? Thanks a lot...

No, $2800 was the MSRP for the 2010 F1 frameset. The 2011 Frameset will retail for $3499. Frame delivery will depend on which global market you are in. I'd expect them to arrive in the late fall, sometime around the end of November or early December. Complete bicycle production will take a priority over framesets. We'll also be introducing some additional options and models for these F1 frames.

Any confirmation on the weight of the F1 frame? Or will this be like the Guru where it comes in severely over weight?
