Well I've gathered enough posts now so I figured I should start my own thread and share my F3!
A little about myself: I picked up my first road bike in July of 2011 to supplement my fitness for my motorcycling addiction - I'd hoped it would at least be bareable. Well I was hooked immediately and I've barely ridden my motorcycle since. My first bike (still have for the trainer) is a 2009 Trek 2.1. In November I bought a closeout 2010 Specialized Tarmac Elite that was a great improvement, I really enjoyed riding the bike and the improved stiffness of a carbon frame. I decided that I'd like to try my hand at racing this year and with that came an opportunity to pick up a new Felt - so I opted to be rid of the Specialized and be on a brand carried by my local shop (to support the team who's supporting me this season) and along came the F3!
Enough small talk.
Here's the bike after a quick assembly at the shop
The bike came REDdy to go
I was pretty hell bent on running a carbon railed saddle and also had a set of ROL wheels I wanted to stick with (that needed new tires) so given the time of year and the horrible weather I made the painful decision to leave the bike at the shop until some Continental GP4000s tires arrived along with a Thomson Masterpiece post and Ritchey C260 stem.
Felt stem (right on the money as far as claimed weight)
Ritchey WCS 260
Fork before steerer chop
The bars aren't really weenie weight but they're plenty stiff!
And I found so many discrepancies with published weights (not from Felt) on the SRAM crank that I figured I'd just pull it off and weigh it myself
Not too bad at all, especially considering the versatility! If I want to run standard rings, no problem! Power meter? No problem!
And finally the Fizik Antares Braided saddle
How she sits today!
Thanks for looking!
