. After a couple thousand miles, over 30 race starts, and a few different states, I thought I could drum up a few words for those considering purchasing an F1. My initial experience with the F1 was a short ride the day before a race. I would have liked to have ridden the bike more, but I was too busy and got it just before I was to start my season. To my delight the bike handled super predictably, and I felt right at home after only a few minutes. This in my opinion is the F1s top feature: handling. As I was putzing around and spinning my legs out, I noticed how it went exactly where I pointed it without any hesitation. The machine almost feels eager to hop in and out of corners. This only got better at speed. As I brought the bike up to about 40mph on a descent, I was a bit timid ahead of my first corner despite how it felt at lower speeds. Again, much to my surprise, I came in and out of the corner very smoothly, and felt very stable.
A proven geometry that has been used for about 6 or 7 years now, is backed up with Felts TEXTREME carbon fiber layup. Not only does it give the bike a clean look, but it supplements the geometry with great acceleration. When the bike jumps out of corners, really what this is, is a stable geometry combined with a stiff bottom bracket. As soon as you start pedaling, seemingly effortlessly, you are back up to speed. Despite how fast it jumps, due to some clever engineering, it is a rather forgiving bike. By this I mean you wont be rattled off your seat after a 5 hour ride.
The bike does a great job at dampening road chatter and debris. Okay so this all sounds great, but there must be a downside right? The frame and fork weighs 1470 grams, with seatcollar, bb bearings, and an uncut steerer. This isn’t exactly a bike for the weight weenies, but as seen here, my rig is 15 lbs and does a fine job competing with some fast competitors. And at $1650 retail for the frame, it is hard to complain about that anyways.
