The fussiness of the cage was the issue that I had in mind. I hadn't considered reach as a limiter (pretty long armed myself).

A Torhans flat kit would be a good use, but then we're just looking at a low tech version of what the SC has. Plus, I was trying to think of more diverse uses than repair kit.
Hopefully the aftermarket will step up and create something a little more fitted, I can't understand why Felt won't put a few people on it.

Maybe something like the seat tube box on the new Orbea

Holy awkward looking. I would think something shallower and taller could be designed which would likely be more aero, no?

Well, if it went any lower, it would interfere with the Omega X brake

It could go lower and sit right above and fill in that area just above the rear brake a bit better.

It would also look better if it followed the same lines at the top tube


AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT

Hopefully XLAB, Torhans, Profile Design, and others will come up with something

I do wonder how the bottle mounts are positioned on the seat tube. Are they always a set distance below the top tube no matter the frame size? Or are they always the same distance above the seat stays regardless the frame size? Or do the vary based on the frame size? If they are based off the seatstays, then I think one design could fit snuggly down low following the tire ala speedconcept draft box. If they are positioned off the top tube, if only one box is designed maybe on large sizes it would look like the Ordu and small sizes be close to the tire. When I look at that Ordu I see a box designed to work on the smallest frame, but mounted to a large frame. You see this on the speedconcept where on the small sizes the top of the box is above the top tube and large sizes the top of the box is below the top tube, but medium it lines up perfectly.

The seat angle seems to fit properly for the SC rear box. Wonder if Dave can chime in as to whether the P5-6 fork/aduro/magura fits? The rear brake (Shimano post rather than single hole) would be a problem, of course....

The p5 beard and brake covers likely wouldn't clear the bulged out headtube. The fork should fit though.

I think the problem with the SC draft box and the felt will be the seat stays. Trek's are much higher-which hide the box. Felts are much lower.

Great thought though.

Yeah, I wonder when they will be posting the geometry specs on the new IA. I have to assume they will be slightly different from the original IA models?

Anyone seen an image of the new Felt IA16 yet? Only images I can find on the internet are from the IA10 and IA14. I really like the looks of the IA14 but I think it is a satin/matte finish on the bike and after a matte black / grey road bike I promised myself never to buy a bike with a matte finish again…….pita to keep it clean.

I expect it will also be a matte finish since all of the other versions (I believe) have that satin/matte finish.

There are no images as its release date is waaaay off in the future. Not out until spring 2016. That's the rumours I read anyway.

I thought it was January 2016 on the IA16 and December of this year for the IA10 and IA14? I could be wrong.

Okay. Just have to wait then. Hopefully the new IA’s will be at the Eurobike show.

You're probably right because I was going off memory. Looks like with age it's getting fuzzy. I'm also only following this story a bit as I've already got myself an IA ;) I think it's going to be great for folks to get their hands on these new models. This bike is a rod of lightening!!!

SuperDave, why are there no bottle bosses on the seat post of the IA? This looks like a wonderful idea and seems weird to not include it on the flagship bike. Or is there something we are missing? 😉

Bottle bosses on the seatpost could prevent the post from sliding in and out of the frame and would require significant exposed seatpost to allow both bosses to be used.

Maybe he meant seat tube rather than seat post? I haven't looked at the flagship IA.

Yes, my mistake, I did mean seat tube. From the pictures of the FRD with the new logo, I can't see any bosses.

Also is the IA1 frameset still going to be a thing?
