Hi,

I wanted a bike for the Road and TT/Tri so went for this. Love it so far.

Its standard except for the Planet X CT45 Tubs.

I appreciate it would look much better without the Tri bars, the stem slammed and the seat post the right way round but this set up is courtesy of a RETUL fitting with Primera so I guess its my fault for being an odd shape!

If anyone has the computer wizardry to make my damn photo bigger be my guest! :oops:

    The pedals are Carbon 105's. The cages are Elite Cannibals and the bars are USE Tula Boost.

    I love the AR range of bikes from Felt. I'm planning on getting a 2015 AR5 as soon as they're available.

    Surprised a retul had your saddle nose all the way forward in front of the BB with so little saddle to pad drop! Aren't you very upright on it? Is the frame a bit on the big side for you? Great looking bike though.

    err… I'll be honest I've no idea! Its a 53 and I'm 5' 7/8 ish…pretty sure i've got little oompah loompah legs with a longer torso if that makes sense. Think it's fairly aggressive on the bars/in the drops...

    I think the most notable thing is probably the handling. It inspires a bit more confidence than my old Allez. Its a bit faster but not enough to justify £2k. But I knew that when I bought it!
