I would rather have an Enve fork than an Easton, so SuperDave why the change?

Looks like my new frame will come with the Easton fork. Oh well.

Anyone know if the FC frames are shipping???? I'm having a hard time getting an answer, and am looking for a 56 ASAP

there are a variety of reasons for the current variability including production capacity.

I have an FC on order, any chance I can request which fork I would like?

Production FC framesets will be delivered with Easton EC90SL tapered forks. We do not have any other options available at this time.

April now!

I want to pull the trigger on an FC, but the wait is killing me

I hear ya. I just finally had to spend my tax refund on some other accesories and a TT bike. Gonna race the Giant again this season, and re-visit the new frameset idea next year. Unfortunately, I have to apologize to customers myself that are waiting for TT bikes and F series, and have had to go alternate routes....but no one can argue that they are awesome bikes!

Might as well just release them as 2012s. This has gotta suck for Felt losing Garmin and having all these problems. My friend just got a new AR1 and loves it so I have no doubt the product is good.

You can get ARs, plenty of stock. Its pretty much every thing else, Fs, Z's, ZW's TT bikes, most of their mountain bikes are not available. Plus the price increase (though that is pretty much industry wide)

I had my pre-order in on a Felt, but my shop and I kept getting delays about the frame. It is unfortunate. I hope they get it sorted out soon.

I have seen the FC in person numerous times, and it is super slick! I get a good deal on them which makes the wait a little easier. Even at full retail I don't think there is much out there as nice (or cool looking).

Two of my friends have them (one on a pro/am team) the other friends with folks at Felt. They both can't get over how great the thing is.

My wife is on a 2011 Z5 and I have a 2011 B12. They are both super nice. I can't wait to get my new frame.

B12?

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.
