2009 Felt F5 - 58cm

Whatever your opinion on the matter, I enjoy naming my bikes. Man naming his vessels of transport is a practice hundreds of years old (if not more), so I continue this tradition, mostly for fun. Kiera came to me via a friend; well ridden and well raced. I couldn't pass the chance up to go to carbon fiber from a very good aluminum frame. Many of Elena's parts transferred over, save for the front derailleur and compact crankset. Now, hills that were once too steep to bike (thanks, Seattle) are now vanquished. And my oh my does the carbon fiber soak up this city's chewed up roads! A winter build means no really long rides (yet), but soon. Very soon...
