I think SuperDave was referencing the AR3 EPS which are in stock, and have a lighter frame weight than the AR1, though the pic he showed is a mechanical routed bike...
That picture is of the '15 AR3. Looks like they are slightly changing things up on the '15 builds slightly. SD reply was in reference to '15s already here.
No offense to Felt, but there is a reason that the AR3 EPS was the only complete build in stock at their warehouse a few weeks ago when my shop checked. Those who are Campy users make up a small subset of our fellow brethren. Those who are Campy lovers and interested in a Felt as their new bike is even smaller. Didn't surprise me one bit, no matter how "great" that EPS build might have been. SRAM or Shimano is going to be what the vast majority/super-majority of Felt buyers will want.
It all adds up though: So 900 + 25g paint. +100g (guesstimate for a 58 vs 56, based on cervelo's
published 10% increase in weight for a 56 vs 58). Plus bolts (10g?) plus grommits (10g?) + rear derailleur hanger 15g? Plus cable Liners taped and stickers (guessing 30g)
So we should be seeing 58 FRds coming out of the box as packed (which is how I weighed mine) in the range of 1090g +/- whatever their manufacturing tolerances are.
I agree it adds up. Just for a frame that was touted to be low 900s in a size 56 but seeing a size 58 come in at 1050-1100g is a little disappointing.
I also doubt there is a 100g penalty from a 56 to 56. Otherwise the same would hold true the opposite way from a 56 to a 54 or even 51.
Once more AR FRD frames get into the hands of WW's will we get a better idea of its true weight range. Just not enough of a data sample at the moment.
