    That looks FAST quick that does 😉
    I have always loved the look of raw carbon fiber bikes but couldn’t trust my self to own one as i’m a clumsy oaf.

    I am also a bit clumsy but I hope to do it justice more than that! 😳

    Fitted only the BB so far as riding taking up all my time 😉

    If anyone is interested frame weight almost bang on 2Kg with shock and seat post clamp.

    That does look really very nice indeed. Have you decided on the components?

    God I hate stupid bike technology acronyms though. Why would anyone ‘FAST’ plastered all over their frame? It’s not a cheap supermarket special. They really should have gone for RAD: Regressive Angular Design. Or AWESOME: Anti-Wobble Extreme Suspension Ovalised Micro Extension. 🙄

    Nice Trek.

    Yup components should be Fulcrum Red Metal 1, F120’s, XT x10 Group, Ritchey WCS carbon bars, Hope BB, Seatpost and Stem. Built up for marathons not uber lightweight racing.

    @cynic-al – thanks 🙂

    @Bennyboy1 – old post – thought that Felt MTB’s all look like Treks 🙂

    Very nice, anybody want an old Virtue!
    …but isn’t the Edict 100mm travel with the Virtue at 120/130mm; you best get some new forks as well Foxy 😉

    Everyone’s happy.

    I like my Felt F65 a lot, 1300gm frame, nice and comfy.

    Looks like an Orange 5.

    As I also have an Orange 5 Janesy then that maybe why it appeals 😉 LOL

    @Fuzzy – Martin I can fit then at 120mm or 100mm with a handy spacer 🙂 They are new 😉

    Gonna try the frame @ 120mm and then 100mm and see what I like better 🙂

    Brake hoses look a bit short.

    And your valves don’t line up.

    ^ sorry, always wanted to say that.

    Looks very nice.
    If I could have several bikes, I think I’d get something like this for things like the 24/12 etc…..

    Thanks Stumpy, LOL – that’s the plan – BM3D, Bikefest 12 Hr solo type of thing 🙂

    Probably still be way back from the top 10% but at least I’ll be comfy and enjoy myself 🙂 or AGNI ?

    I expect you will be in the top 10% with all that training you are putting in. Anyhthing after May should be a good result. Witha all those base miles in the legs.

    Well you’d hope so but I doubt it Andy 😉 Certainly fun to try 😉
