Felt AR frameset 56cm - $995 (Paso Robles)

123456
2011 Felt AR frameset ( frame / fork / headset / seatpost) , and I can include a bar/stem if needed.

Frame was ridden about 3k miles, dry (no rain) between 2014- early '16 . Never crashed. Harder to find bold white letters with the Green graphics. Solid Road riding , or can also double as a TT bike (very aero). Frame still has a lifetime warranty , but I can speak with a prospective buyer on this in more detail in person /over the phone.

Some specifics on frame :
* 56cm top tube length , traditional (not effective TT length) sizing. Usually a good fit if you're between 5'10- 6'
* 3k carbon fiber weave, High Modulus , made in Taiwan
* fork is full carbon , aero
* seatpost is tear dropped , full carbon , proprietary .
* frame/fork/seatpost / headset weight, is right about 4.25 lbs.

Here is Felt's catalog history online, to look up AR bikes: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0021/5701/9254/files/2011_Performance_Catalog.pdf?620

In speaking to a Felt CSR on the phone, the only difference between a AR1 and a AR5 is that a AR1 will be slightly more stiff, and weigh slightly less( not sure how many ounces less, probably 3-6 oz) in regards to their FRD production process. They're both made in the same facility in Taiwan, have the same general design, and 3K weave. It could be said like how Santa Cruz makes their carbon frames in China, that the "lower level" carbon frame tends to exhibit more vertical compliance (shock absorption value) to the rider, and tends to be a bit more durable then the higher grade (stiffer) carbon frames.

It's currently built up, so a prospective buyer can at least test ride it. It would only take me 1 hr to disassemble to Frame/fork/HS/seatpost.
