Great bike! You have an aluminum F Series and a carbon F Series...How do the 2 compare?

The aluminum one is super responsive, the carbon is a smoother ride though. Honestly there very close for the price the F75 is hard to beat!

Thanks for letting me know how the F75 & the F5 compare. You were the perfect person to ask.

How do you like the KCNC C6's? I've thought about buying the C7's because of the weight and style of quick-release, but I've read WW comments that make me think C7's might not be for me. Everyone seems to love the Planet-X's (which you mentioned in one of your posts), but, from experience, I know the Planet-X's quick-release wouldn't be enough for me.

I rode the F75 again today and they are very, very similar. If I were in the market for a bike I would by the F75, I also own a Lynskey and this bike is in the same company as the other two.

As far as the brakes go, Im out to lunch on the C6's. I only rode them a couple times before I took the F5 apart for its upgrades. I wasnt really impressed honestly, but I need to ride them some more. My Sram Force brakes blow them away as far as mudulation and power and are pretty much set and forget.

Im not going to change out the brakes for Planet x's. I like them too much minus the 80 gram difference :twisted:

Would you happen to know to mass of the F75 frame? I'm thinking of getting the F85 and just upgrading the heck out of it.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, but I'm guessing you want to know how much the F75 & F85 weigh. According to Felt's website, the 2012 F75 frame weighs 1292g and the F85 weighs 1317g. I don't know the weight of the fork, but both bikes use the same fork. As far as I can tell from seeing both bikes next to each other in person (as well as info on Felt's website), the only differences between the F75 frame and the F85 frame are BB30 BB shell (F75) vs. GXP BB shell (F85), and some seriously thick and heavy looking paint on the F85 (oh, but it looks so damn good in person!).

Hope that helps.

I like the custom blue details on your Toupe. Look forward to seeing that on your F75. 117g seatpost - Wow! Is that seat post carbon fiber?

I shot some photos of my buddy's full SRAM Red F75 on the scale. I'll post them soon. Speaking of scales, I bought that same scale at WalMart. Gets the job done.

The postman came today and look what he bought with him. I ordered these from Far sports on the 26th of last month (last Wednesday), that's awesome. Bella stayed in contact with me and really helped me along the way. I will be ordering another pair from her!

Wheels look great out of the box, very,very light.

Woops...Lost track of which of your F Series I was looking at. Lol

Those wheels look great. I really want a pair.

I weighed the wheels and I am very pleased with the workmanship and weights of these wheels. Total weight was 1217 grams and the skewers that were included were 45 grams.

I also picked up a Devox stem for 60 bucks that came in at 101 grams for 100mm. Thats awesome!

1217g, Wow that's light! These are clinchers? Are they the Farsport FSC38-CM? After you've ridden them, please post a review...
