!!Possibly down to £355 with voucher code - http://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/merlincycles.co.uk

This deal is cheaper than the Wiggle F95 2013 exclusive road bike and is the 2014 version with choice of colours.

Also cheaper than the Decathlon BTWIN 500SE and with SORA better than microshift.

Also don't forget 2% cashback via Quidco

So what's not to like!

I have spent over a week looking for a bike for my son and having scoured the internet and local bike shops I think this is the best I can get on a £400ish budget.

Carbon fork and Shimano Sora groupset, but you will need to budget for a set of pedals.

Next day delivery if you are happy to final assemble the bike yourself.
Otherwise Merlin were quoting a 10 day build timescale if you would like them to build it.

£6.50 carriage for boxed.
£7.99 carriage for boxed - next day
The £29.95 charge includes them building up the bike and checking it before sending it - which seems reasonable to me.

Hope this helps others.

How?

Postage is a bit steep as most companies do this for free or £10 or something,but even at £390 still nothing better than this i don't think
#11
cold because it is not full carbonation
#12
It's less than £370...

Which is good, as at this price I would not trust full carbonage.

Lol, I've yet to see a carbon frame bike for under £400. In fact I don't think I've seen anything with a better spec for the money full stop.

Voted HOT!

A pedal free bike I am lost?

The Triban 5 was just reduced with same specs as this but limited sizes.

Most bikes come without pedals so the user can choose to buy the ones that suit them

The forks are carbonated.
#21
Wow, just to repeat again, this weighs less than 10kg AND has a carbon fork, unbelievably great value!!!!
#22
On the hunt for a roadie, been mountain biking for about 15 years. Was waiting for the Specialized Allez to drop inprice when the new models come out but this is very tempting at this price.
#23
Great deal. Will make a great starter bike for anyone getting into road riding.

I think your brain is carbonated.
Would you like me to find you a gas relief valve or would you prefer a Pepsi top up?

Great deal, excellent entry level bike.
#26
Nice entry level bike, im very pleased with my 2013 felt cyclo cross bike, takes all sorts of mountain bike territory hammerings.... so I guess the build quality transfers to this...

How much did you pay for it?
#28
I'm in the market for an entry level road bike and I was set on the Btwin Triban 500 SE. Is this bike better than the triban simply because of the Sora gears?
#29
Evans will also price match this, if you have a local store and thats convenient etc.

And if your employer uses Evans for Ride To Work scheme (as ours does), this is a pretty cost effective way of getting a bike at this rate - total to pay = £244 based on 360 quid value.

tempting!

We looked at the Btiwn Triban 500SE and looks a good bike. Reviews are good but some concensus is that the upgrade to Sora on the 500 is worth the £70 premium - which I think makes the Felt a good buy.
See http://road.cc/content/review/116333-btwin-triban-500-se-road-bike

We looked at quite a few £600-£700 bikes that had lower spec groupsets than Sora, e.g. 2300 or Claris. The Microshift equipment seemed quite poor in comparison.

Good Entry bike .. 9.7KG in time I'd put lighter wheels on and 105 crank get it down to 8.5 KG

The microshift shifters have quite good reviews though I have never used them so can't comment. There must be a gap in the market as shimano shifters, even the low end stuff, is expensive for what it is in my opinion.
As an aside, I rode a very nice road bike with 11speed ultegra at the weekend, honestly really couldn't tell much difference in shifting from my 8 speed 2300, I'd even say that it didn't feel as confident in its shifts, though it is supposed to be slightly faster, but at a huge extra cost. The chain also seems so ridiculously thin!

This Felt is a very good deal imo, though also consider the slightly cheaper Vitus Razor from CRC, which has 8 speed Claris (basically Sora) http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/vitus-bikes-razor-road-bike-2014/rp-prod107022

Depending on what you are actually after I suppose, I note the Vitus Razor has mudguard clearance and eyelets so would be suitable in the winter too. The Felt doesn't appear to have eyelets so you may have trouble fitting mudguards other than raceblades (which don't protect the drive chain) or Crud Racer 2s (which aren't the best or easiest to fit).

Specialized = paying huge premium for the name, components are lower spec than this Felt in general.
At the end of the day any road bike is really just like a PC, made up of lots of third party components. The only thing unique to the make is the frame (and many are just generic frames rebadged anyway), which is obviously important but the real cost is all in the components. Anything else is just marketing!

You're paying for the frame too. Same with Boardman. Triple butted aluminum frames. Components can be changed.

Maybe paying a bit extra for the frame, but mostly for Specialised's huge marketing budget!

Ordered. At this price I could use it for a year and if I didn't like it I would pretty much get my money back selling on ebay :)
