Second hand carbon Felt or new Chinese carbon frame.

Postby dread_i1 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 18:32 pm

I was toying with the idea of building up fm098 from velobuild in the spring, I was then having a chat with a friend of mind about it and he offered me a 2008 felt f1 for a similar price. He isn't the first owner of the felt so cannot entirely vouch for its history, it looks good though.

Any thought on the matter.

Thanks
Jon

Depending on condition - the Felt - no brainer! You may not know the full history but then you don't know the manufacturing controls behind the Chinese frame.

That is what I was leaning towards. Think i'll head over to his at the weekend and have a close inspection.
