Bought this baby yesterday, and took it for a 30 miles ride today. This baby is so fast and very responsive. Very little effort pedaling on a flat. Very happy. Replacement from a Roubaix Specialized. The only i can complain is the saddle, not too comfortable for a long ride.
I purchased this bike to use as my Duathlon training bike. I've added a Fizik saddle and Mavic Cosmic Carbon 40 rims. The frame on this Felt bike is amazing. This bike allowed me to make the upgrades I wanted. I'm a huge Felt fan and ride a highly customized Felt TT bike for TT racing. Every time I ride my AR5 I have a smile on my face. Zion Cyclery is the best place to buy a bike.
The bike feels good since the beginning. The shimano 105 works great, very smooth and fast. The seat and geometry allow to ride long distances comfortably. The only change I would make is the cassette to a 11-28. Aesthetically, the bike looks great
This bike looks pretty hard-core, but ride one and you'll see it's a great all-around bike! I use mine for fast weekend rides, touring, and a daily 35-mile commute. It's quick and responsive, but also incredibly comfortable. it doesn't come with a good climbing gear, but that's easily remedied by installing a 11-28 cassette, which fits fine with the existing derailleur.
I went from a Specialized Allez Sport to this and it is like driving a lamborghini now. Fast and responsive. The only complaint is the seat. The front of the seat has a bump in it which pushes on your Perineum. Once I fix that this will be a bike I am goin to own for years to come. Tyler at bicycle Generation did an awesome job on finding a bike I would like and fitting me for it.
