I'd like to see a closeup of the rear brake setup vs the standard IA integrated setup. It is tough to see in the photos from the TriRig article.

I'm also curious to know if there is actually any data showing the differences between the standard IA build and this new one. I know the TriRig article states (if I read it correctly) that the frame by itself on the new version is actually faster than the standard IA frame, but when you add the brakes and other components it is a little slower. Just how big of an impact are the exposed brakes on the faster frame vs the integrated brakes on a slower frame?

This is all very exciting....*in a singing voice* "I'm getting a new bike next Spring...la la laa"

I think the new price points are going to make it really hard to decide between a P2 or an IA. Competition for pricing is always good for us!

And the IA comes with a better aero bar than the P2. Also there will be a frame set available for the cheap IA. Seriously, Felt has just gotten greedy. I here that the IA has been huge seller and now they do this, it is like they want to make lots of money or something.

Of course, I do not know if I could buy a IA without the pretty carbon aero bar. It really is a pretty bar.

Also, the ARD is coming with a rotor powermeter (well really half of a powermeter) I believe.

I wonder if a Zipp Vuka Stealth and a TriRig Omega X makes that bike as fast as the old IA. The new bottle mounts, standard stem, and the mounts on the seat tube are more attractive then the old IA

That article is only for the IA's with integrated front ends. It is not the new IAs

Here is what happened:

There are 2 bike radar articles

http://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/article/felt-2016-road-line-up-revealed-44526/ This one does not have the IA 10, 14, 16 pricing

http://www.bikeradar.com/...e-up-revealed-44526/ This one has the IA 10, 14, 16 pricing

The only difference is bikeradar.com/road and bikeradar.com/us

Yeah but I wonder if it will end up like the bolt above the bottom bracket. No one made any sort of storage device for the P5 and the new P2/P3.

IMO, it would be a lot easier to design a drag-neutral storage solution for something behind the seat tube than between the seat tube and down tube.

I agree. I wonder if Trek owns a patent on the seat tube storage box they created. It's exciting to see companies start thinking about integration and storage instead of just aero all the time. I want a fast bike but I want storage too!

IIRC, I recall seeing a Trek patent on that box (because my social life is such that I sometimes spend my evenings browsing Google Patents). That said, there's no way Trek or anyone could sue over bottle bosses on the rear of the seat tube. I'd imagine Orbea, Felt, and probably others to follow will put the bosses there and rely on the aftermarket to provide a solution.

Well, the Zipp 404 Firestrikes account for $3600 of that price.

Yeah, pretty darn high. But I also think $2999 is very reasonable. And they hit the full range in between. I think it is going to be a VERY interesting year for Felt.

Hmm...article doesn't list the IA4 which is the Ultegra drivetrain and training wheelset. That was my just-have-to-convince-the-wife bike to buy this winter. Guess I'll be leaning towards the IA 14.

Its an appealing package, that's for sure.

As well as being easier to wrench for those of us who travel a lot or are less capable mechanics, TriRig claim that with the right cockpit and brakes it could be as fast (faster?) Than the integrated version

Whilst I'm sceptical about it being potentially faster, I'm sure that it could be made close enough for most of us to not mind

As far as an overall package of bike & positioning, which is what's important, The IAx is almost certainly a faster choice for most athletes.

Man, how would you like to be Orbea and QR right now? $3K for a 105 IA is tough to beat - especially with that Bayonette 3 aero bar. Hope Felt makes a bunch of them.
