Hi All. I'm hoping to get a new bike fairly soon. I have it down to 3 based mainly on budget and would appreciate any thoughts from anyone who has either a Felt B12, Specialized transition Comp or a Canondale slice Carbon 105.
Thanks a lot
Ian

Thought about a Trek?

Thanks for your reply. Yes have looked at the Equinox TTX 9.5 but it is slightly too much money although I may be able to stretch. Any other ideas?

Hi Ian

Possibly too late now that I notice the date of your post but there is a great article in this month's 220 Triathlon mag where I seem to recall that the Felt B12 comes out as the best of the bunch...

Hope whichever you choose you are pleased with your purchase and that you find yourself flying along !

Thanks a lot for that, I just read the article and am arranging a test ride for the next couple of weeks. I already have a Felt road bike which I love so It seems an obvious choice.

Not sure about the B12, but I have an 05 Felt S22, and I love it. Such good value for money. Only down side is the bike looks so good, people expect the rider to be good too! Lots of pressure there.
I'd love to upgrade to a higher spec Felt. If budget is key, wait til the 09 models come out, then you'll get an 08 or better still an 07 even cheaper. These older models are still great bikes, and you'll save £100s

You're right, check out Winstanleysbikes.co.uk They have the '07 Felt B2 at an amazing 36% off or under £1600!!!!!!!
