I've seen the Felt on offer at what seems great prices. The F75 is £800 and the F85 is £600. The F75 is slightly more than I was originally looking to spend so wondering if I should push up my budget for it??

The main differences I can are:

10 speed 105
9 speed Tiagra

Felt custom butted Superlite 7005 aluminum with carbon seatstay; CNC head tube & BB shell; 1-piece forged dropouts with replaceable hanger
Felt Custom Butted F-Lite 7005 Aluminum w/bulged ST & butted CS, CNC HT & BB shell, forged dropouts w/replaceable hanger

MAVIC CXP-22N Aluminum Rim w/ Machined UB Control Braking Surface & Wear Indicator laced 3-Cross Rear, Radial 0-Cross Front
Shimano WH-RS10 w/ rear Offset Rim Profile

Is it worth the £200 more - e.g. a more enjoyable ride, longer lasting etc. It will be to replace my 15yr old racer which was stolen. I'm looking to get back into cycling again with club runs and maybe a couple of local races and club time trials.

Thanks in advance[/u]
