It doesn't matter how cool looking or neat it is if you can't get it. I'd be pretty pissed to have waited that long for my frame considering the race season in most areas starts in a week or already has started. I thought 2 weeks was a long time to wait for my new frame.



Yeah, I am missing some of the season on it. Unfortunately mine is already paid for and I don't want to deal with trying to get something else now. I have a road bike that works for now.

This is the B12.

ive been deciding on a new frameset for a while now and i think im going to settle on the new F1
the only thing that i cant decide on in weather to go 56 or 58

Im 182cms tall and have an inseem of 83cm, currently ride a willier in large which i think is a 55 top tube
i run about 30mm of spaces under my stem and a fair bit of set back on my saddle
i dont want to go bigger if i dont have to but would the 58 be the way to go?
would appreciate a few opinions on which size i should go with, cheers

I just saw a new 2011 F3 at my lbs and it looked fantastic. If I had the cash for a new bike, it would be way up on my list. I was very impressed with the finish and it looks way better than the older frames. Maybe I will take it out for a quick test ride :)

Do you have a shop you can go to to get sized/fitted? I would recommend that. Without knowing anything else about you, I would say the 58 is too large and that the 56 might be the better fit. But you should really go to a shop and have them size you up.

I have had a F1 on order since last Oct. I was just informed from my LBS that the 51's require a different rake on the new Easton forks and the scheduled ship date has been moved back to end of April. I guess I'll have a 2011 1/2 F1 by then. :(

I couldn't get a Felt so I went ahead and got a Giant TCR Advanced SL. Its a bummer but I can't switch bikes half way through the season.

Also a nice bike..i like the 2010 design more than the new one.

Is the Easton fork from the F1 really 380 grams heavy???
