The FELT F75 was the surprise for me on this list. In addition to its carbon fork, FELT has also added a carbon seat post which further buffers the rider from the stiff and aggressive frame. The F75 also features a full Shimano 105 drivetrain giving you 11 gears of smooth shifting for getting through tough climbs and maximizing your downhill speeds.
The F75 also comes with Vittoria Rubino Slick tires offering a more responsive and durable ride than any of its counterparts. The F75 does fall short in its ability to up be upgraded which would mean rather than the bicycle growing with your hobby, you’d have to purchase an entire new frame when you outgrow this otherwise great entry level bicycle.
