The Felt FR is a sleeper frame. The FR FRD is ~685g from the bicycle.com article. A buddy of mine has an FR2 and it was a great bike, not sure that I would want the BB rear brake though.

With between the new R5, Tarmac SL6, and Canyon coming to the USA it will be interesting to see what people end up riding come next spring.

I strongly recommend you to buy Cervelo S3. It's the best bike ever.

What about a Factor 02? Similar geometry and short headtube.

You forgot water bikes and hand bikes. That's off the top of my head so I may be missing others.

Nice, haven't heard of the Rose X-Lite mentioned in awhile.

Built up with all the stuff from my old bike (DA 9100 rear derailleur, Ultegra 6800 front derailleur, shifters, crankset (with rotor q rings), zipp bar and stem, Fulcrum Racing Zero wheels)). Would be nice to get it to under 6,8kg.

What bike would you recommend? I mostly do climbing races but live in the flattest country on earth. Was looking at the Rose X-Lite Team, S-Works Tarmac, Canyon Ultimate CF SLX or maybe go over budget for a Pinarello Dogma F10.
