And why reward a team that's jumping ship on you next year anyways. I'm sure the 1t4i price tag has skyrocketed of late

Who sells Felt online that can ship to the US?
The exclusivity of the Alu AR to the European market is very frustrating.

You're assuming the AR is available to the AS team.

Very frequently only a short pre-production / proofing run are made and even then, they're raced and returned for evaluation and breakdown.


In all fairness they were riding the F FRD at the TDF and before, so even if there were a delay on the AR, I'm sure they could have it by now. But maybe that is the case, that the AR was simply behind the F FRD in its testing and production.

Disappointed that the geo isnt more like the F series. Those headtube heights are silly.

Is Argos really jumping off of Felt and onto Giant?

Also regarding the geo- the stack height is 1cm taller than Cannondale in most sizes. Use a -10 instead of -6 if you're worried about slammage. Still much shorter than Cervelo, Specialized, Ridley, Wilier, Orbea, and a heap of other companies.

Shimano and Giant are pretty close so it makes sense.

Felt is quite close to Shimano as well. Giant has a lot more money though!
As for geo, I wish it was as easy as changing stem angles. IMO the F-series geo is quite nice and would make a lot of sense on this frame. That is just what fits me though.

It is that easy. If you ride a 58 F series its the difference between a -6 and -17. Its not really that big of a deal.

A bit OT, but look at the FSA K-Force BB386 crank in the detail shots at the FRD link above. First of the off-brand to grab shimano's new bolt pattern? Looks pretty sweet, and with a 30mm 386 axle, should be stiff as anything. Will see soon, I'd imagine!

74' head angle in the two upper sizes results in very unstable handling at higher speeds, in my experience. I had a 60cm F1 some years ago with that same combo, I swapped in a 40mm rake fork and it was rideable, but 43mm and 74' results in too little trail. Fine for turning under ~25mph, but very hard to rail a corner at racing speeds, or descend mountains with switchbacks.

I'm an upper category racer with >25 years experience, BTW.

Would love to hear Felt's rationale for this, as otherwise these are fantastic bikes. SuperDave?
