Apologies for the poor quality pics, taken on my phone after the first test ride on Saturday (only finished building it up on Friday evening). Will try to get better pics later. This is my first complete build, but pretty happy with it so far. Very stiff and good on the climbs. Steering is more lively than my Z6, but that's to be expected. The shifting is good with the 11 speed 6800, much smoother than the 6700 on my other bike. The lever doesn't need as much pressure. Not sure about the tape at the moment, but it is comfy.

    Nice. I really like Felt's carbon range of bikes.

    Beautiful but it needs black tape and a black saddle.

    What was did you go with the BB, threaded sleeve, threaded BB or Wheels Manufacturing reducers?

    Possibly...

    The frameset came with the ceramic BB30. It also came with FSA 24mm reducers.
    I did look into a praxis sleeve, but the BB has a step built into it (you don't need circlips) which means the sleeve wouldn't fit.
