I had an order in for a Felt F1 and a Felt DA. The production delays were too much for me so I cancelled it and bought a Cannodale SuperSix HM and a Specialized Shiv instead. The date kept getting pushed back with no clear answer on the true date so I decided to go a different route. Hopefully Felt can get production and delivery back on track. Latest date I heard was out into March/April.

They've had a rough roll out with the new F series.

Are the Felt FA framesets out? I don't see any reviews online. I guess they would have suffered from the same fork problems.

My shop has also told me they have a long delay on the F series and are not sure when the shipment will arrive. SuperDave any idea on when the F1 will arrive?

Also noticed Felt increased their pricing 5-10% on some of their 2011 bikes mid season just over the past few weeks.

This won't be just limited to Felt. Other companies will increase prices this year and next as the raw materials have gone up in cost and demand.

Here ya go 53x12. It is a bad ass looking ride for sure. I like the looks better than the F1SL.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to hearing how it rides.

I know that Felt had problems with their forks on the F series. If my eyes aren't playing tricks on me is that a Enve produced fork for Edge? If so props to SuperDave and Felt for going that route. I assume it is a 2.0?

Oh btw spinwax, any chance you can throw it on the scale before building it up?

Looks nice. Let us know how it rides if you get a chance to take it for a spin.

Unfortunately that is not my bike. Should be soon though. My wife got her new 2011 Felt today. Super excited for her. She is doing her first race this coming weekend!

That FC is getting built up for a friend of mine on a new Pro team based out of Southern California. The photo was actually sent to me. I didn't get to see the bike in person. I will make sure to weigh it out soon as I get my frame.

I am curious to see if Felt hit their claimed weight of 900g for the FC.
