    05 F-80

    Here's my '05 F-80. 58 cm, FSA Gossamer crank from an '05 F-70, black 105 rear der., 105 front der., Salsa stem and handlebar, MTB Speed V saddle, and Time ATAC mountain pedals (yeah, I know, but it's all I had. Can't afford road shoes/pedals yet). I know the stem looks pretty upright, but with resent back problems, this helped a lot. And the saddle is kinda pointed down a little bit, but tweaking it every ride.

    Like the bars and tape selection

    So, are those the original wheels with labels removed? I need to change out my stem and bars also. Just been slow to do so. Really like the bike and have been very happy with my "aluminum can" and feel it was money really well spent. Here's my bike from a ride on Saturday.

    Nope. Actually they're DA hubs, with velocity fusion rims. 2x in the rear, radial in the front.

    Now that you mention it, they really look like the stock wheels. lol.

    Oh yeah. FSA bar/stem combo. The stock setup is heavy as SIN!

    No way man. I'm a college student. Another carbon cage at 50 bucks? lol. I lose the alloy one during the important crits. I usually only take one bottle half full bottle (I'm an optomist ) anyway.

    Sell the carbon one on eBay and buy a 2nd alloy.

    I'm not sure by what scale you gage your opinion, but my stock F55 (54cm) is 16.6 pounds, with the 1700 gram Easton wheelset...I wouldn't call it a boat anchor...Zipp 303 or Elan Primas would make it a lightweight...

    I think he may have meant the bars and stem. You can save some weight there definitely. My bike is like yours, about 17lbs. But I could squeeze another 100grams or more off by switching the bars and stem.

    Errm. Yeah. As far as bikes go, sub-17 is pretty damn good.

    But as far as bars/stems go, its pretty bad. I bought the FSA RD200's because I bent the Felt ones. When I pulled them off and held them together, it was amazing how heavy the stock ones felt.

    And now for something completely different

    '05 SR-81 -
    It's a great little bike - only regret is that I didn't go for the SR-71 with the better components and the compact crank (rather than the triple). Unfortunately, Felt discontinued their "flat bar" road bikes after this model year, citing "poor sales."
    Since this is my commuter, I'd like to say it's not my primary ride - that would be posted in the Seven forum - but if it weren't for commuting, I would get precious little riding in. Just not enough time after work, and not enough days in a weekend.

    Is that Ultegra level?

    Did it really make a very noticable difference? I would have thought the cranks themselves were the cause of the squishiness.

    Tiagra or 105

    I think the shimano bb un73 is tiagra or 105 level.

    Yes, the difference was very significant. Stability on this bike is greatly improved. My riding buddies said they saw me out of the saddle more yesterday than the entire year.

    Felt F4C '06

    Is it possible to actually be in love with a bike? Yeah - I think so. Just bought this and only have about 50 miles on it, but what a ride! I have an old bike from the 70's or 80's and had an opportunity to ride a friends Felt. I was hooked! This is stock with no modifications, but pedals... I still love the old steel bike, too...

    '05 F70 - the "Yellow Jacket"

    Here's my ride, the '05 F70 "Yellow Jacket." Can't get enough saddle time on this baby...

    Aftermarket stuff to date: Forte' stem, Specialized BG saddle & Hot Dot rear flasher, Shimano A-520 pedals, Profile Design Kages, Hurricane mini-pump, Trans-it wedge seat pack w/tools, & a Cateye Micro Wireless computer. Plus a few bits of colored plastic tape thrown in for good measure. Very tasty...

    Keep Ridin'

    Here's my baby. Just put on the yellow tape about a month ago and customized the cages. By "customized", I mean, I bought John Deere/warning sign yellow Krylon and put on about 4 coats. New wheels (prolly Neuvation) are next, then maybe a carbon seatpost. It has the sweatguard on it because I rode the trainer yesterday and left it on. I find that it acutally comes in handy.
