Looks a lot like the Shiv as well as that old GT Project 96 TT bike from back in the day that Mark Allen used.

@BSB, thank you for that. Seems like they borrowed a few ideas.

Wow, how low do those seat stays attach?!

Not the prettiest bike around but still waaaay nicer than a shiv tri!

Other than the non-3:1 tubes, I don't see the resemblance to the SB. The GT had a tiny round top tube. The Felt has a top tube large enough you could put your energy gels in it...

That isn't a DA, btw.

The new Shimano crankset allows the use of any size chainring. I'm a big fan of the 52/36t size.
