    Got my F5 Team edition in Today!

    Hey guys been lurking around here for awhile gathering info and just wanted to give back some beta. I am in Southern NH and ordered my F5 team edition through my LBS last wednesday. Well it arrived yesterday and I was able to get it today!!!!!
    Man is it beautiful, will post pics soon. Love the full 105 gruppo, team graphics and 3T upgrades. But also wanted to let you know that mine came with a full carbon weave, straight Felt fork on it. This must be the newly designed fork, looks just like the pic on the website.
    The bike is awesome and worth the wait guys. I feel spoiled having got mine so quick after reading througfh many posts dealing with long wait times.
    My LBS did say he's still waiting on his F4's but my F5 came cross country in about 9 days. Happy Riding, pics soon

    Me = Jealous

    Got word last week that my F5 arrived in CA and will ship this week. Apparently there were no 61cm bikes in the country. And today was such a nice day...

    9 days, really? How far did it have to go? Did someone carry it on their backs?

    Pics?

    Thanks.BTW its a 54cm with everything still stock on it.
    Ordered Neuvation wheels to replace the CXP's and lose close to a full pound, and have the new 105 pedals to cpmplete the group and look.

    I'm on the east coast so it came cross country in about a week.

    They are still on the bike so I havent weighed them, but if the Aksiums are a good comparison they supposedly weigh about 1800 grams, thinking the CXP's will come in around1900- 2000 grams. The Neuvation set says it weighs 1620g and I got them on sale for $259!

    Well, I got mine in today. It's a 61cm, so I had to wait for it to be built and shipped. It came with the slightly curved Easton EC90 fork. LBS said the others got the Felt fork, but for my size they must still be giving out that fork. Weather is crap, so I haven't had a chance to take it out yet, but I can't wait...

    The regular F5 wheels are heavier than those on the F5 team due to the use of a slightly better hub on the Team version. I think my stock F5 wheels were in the neigborhood of 2050 or more grams. I'll look to see if I can find where I posted the stock weight.
