Felt sells the FA as a frame set. Specialized sells the Allez E5 as a frame set. Cannondale does not sell the CAAD10 as a frame set.

Get a caad 10 105 for racing and some other pimp ass frame to transfer your components to.

What size frame do you need?

Warranty that shit and get a new frame and race it again and break it again and get another one under warranty and break that one and then move up to CAT4 and race with the faster no handling fucktards and crash and break that frame and then move up to CAT1 and get sponsored with free frames. Done.

Caad10 frame to transfer all my shit to race. Then another build when the season is over. I ride a size 56

All Felt can over is crash replacement. They made the middle section of the top tube very thin. Little do they know that is exactly where the handlebar would impact the frame in a crash. Stupid engineering.

Yeah top tube. Complete delamination on top tube in 3 places. I'll fix it over the winter. I saw how Calfee fixes it and I can do it. I have all the equipment and materials from when I used to make air boxes and shit for GP bikes.

This is why I ride a 1983 Litespeed for crits. This bike would be the aggressor in an altercation with a feathery light carbon frame. People know that and don't fuck with me though. Only time peeps be gettin' crazy is in Tennesee, but they all fuck their sisters and don't know right from wrong. You should lose that Felt. They break easily. Get a Cervelo like I told you. Since creation, nobody has ever broken a Cervelo frame. It's true. Look it up.

If you buy a Venge I will purposely crash into you. Then you can go back to your lame ass Felt.

Slow and heavy. Embarrassing being out there on a non carbon bike. I don't think you're fragile ego can handle that.
