I'm afraid that is impossible. I do not sell Felt Bicycles, I just work there (at the Irvine, CA USA Tech center). I'm certain that F FRD bikes and frames have shipped from the factory. I'm checking the destinations exported to thus far. I'll reply when I have more news.

If you could check that would be great, I'm almost at the point of cancelling the order as I can't wait around for false deadlines.

I already liked what Felt did with the new F-series/F1. With the F FRD using Oxeon Textreme spread tow carbon I really wanna try one. For my frame a 54cm F FRD happens to be a perfect fit.

@SuperDave: Glad that's cleared up! :thumbup:

@Wildman: Let's hope you get your Felt F FRD soon.

Superdave do you have any updates on whether the bikes have been shipped or not?

Sorry for the delay. The F FRD kits were cleared to ship on March 10th from Taiwan. Container shipments usually depart on Thursday from Keelung Harbor/Port which would be March 13th of that same week. Transit times to Europe are 3-4 weeks. Customs clearance is 2-10 days, Distribution takes 1-7 days.

I'm involved with the production of the bicycles but much less so of the sales, especially outside of North America where I have very little contact with our global distributors. With that said I hope to hear back on where the F FRD are in the transportation from their origin. Apologies if additional obligations and higher priorities delay my reply here.

Cheers Dave, and apologies for pushing you but you were THE only person at Felt who was actually getting back to me.

Still no bike but I have been informed it will land in Germany this week, then be shipped to the UK.

I have actually seen a photo of one in someones house so they do exist...

Wow, that looks mean.
Just finished off the 2015 version and photoshoot and I can say I might like the look of yours just as much as the new one.

Gorgeous bike! :thumbup: Not that light but not that heavy either. With a platform like the F FRD it has a lots potential. How does it ride?
