You should take the time and read through Dan's articles from earlier this year on this. It's extremely clear and concise. I think it will help you decide which size option will work best for you.

Hope that helps!!!

Hey Superdave,

I see the new IA models are officially out on the website!

For the IA1 frameset option, you will need to change the finish options.. I thought it came in 4 color options and then i looked in the IA FRD page which actually reads the same so should be a description error:

"Matte Carbon (Charcoal, Fluoro Blue, Red, White)"

I had my IA1 frameset ordered a week or two ago in Hong Kong, to be honest I really like the new finish a lot more than the previous year..!

Our color descriptions list the "main color (then all accent colors)"

You're correct, though... The IA 1 frame color description is wrong. I've already let our web gurus know, so you should see an update soon. Thanks for the heads up!

Looking at the website information and fit calculator, I see both alloy and carbon aerobar options for the new IAs, and apparently geometries are different... can you please confirm, and share the reasons for this?

Also, can you provide an explanation to the color code for fit reccomendations in the calculator? I get Best/Great/OK optios, but having solutions color coded in each category is confusing...

Definitely into buying one of these, and trying to iron out the details...

Thanks, I think you guys provide great support here!

Where did you see options for either alloy or canon bars with the new IAs? I thought the original IA came with carbon and the new ones had alloy bars. I didn't see options to be able to upgrade to the carbon bars.

Just fiddle around with the DA/IA fit calculator in their site. You will see fit options combining the 31.8 stem and both alloy and carbon bars (with different spacers to achieve the same S&R values). I have edited my previous post because I think this means a different frame geometry, and alloy bars for the IA16. Also, manuals for both versions of the aerobars are posted on the site, and I cannot notice geometry differences in them...

Any plans to make a 61cm IA? Us tall guys want a super bike too!

Have you entered your coordinates into the fit calculator?
There are no plans to make a 61cm IA but there are dozens of examples of 1.9m+ guys on the 58cm IA.

The IA10 and IA14 frames are identical from a cable management standpoint. Like the IA produced now they are all compatible with electronic, mechanical, and hydraulic shifting systems.


What about the IA16? will it be Di2 compatible and feature batpac?

Yes, IA10, IA14 and IA16 frames are identical in terms of component compatibility.

Unfortunately at 6'7" the 58cm isn't going to work. I understand that you can't make a bike for everyone though. I still love my B12!

Are you guys going to be designing a draft box for the new IAs or leaving that up to companies like XLAB or Torhans?

So. Is there suppose to be a silicon or runner piece that fits inside the hole (both sides) of the seatpost? My IA4 doesn't have it but I have noticed it on other Felt IA rides.

Yes, there are two strips that snap into place on both sides of the seatpost filling the gap to M6 binder bolt slot.
Each bike comes with 4 strips.

If you didn't get them it's available as part of an assessory kit. I think it's the "small parts"kit on the felt site. You can also order through your local dealer.

Dave is there a difference between the carbon layups in the IA10 vs the IA3? I see the IA10 listed as "Aero TT / Tri UHC Performance carbon fiber" and the IA3 as "Aero Tri UHC Advanced carbon fiber". Is there a difference between "Advanced" and "Performance"?

Yes, Advanced and Performance use different blends of carbon fibers.

SD explains the differences, here: Felt Carbon Fiber

It's too bad the frameset options are limited to the IA1 and FRD and there's not something a bit more affordable.

My order has been placed for an IA10. A lot of money for me and a lot of second guessing but I can't wait to see it. Dealer tells me mid October so we will see. The big follow up question will be whether I should go with Flo 60/90 wheels with white decales or black on the IA10 white/black canvas?

Looks great, but I would recommend putting tires on your wheels, it is more aerodynamic.

True....only so much one can do in Photoshop though. While tires would certainly be possible, I wanted to get a better idea of what the wheels would look like on the bike and really didn't feel like spending any more time on it. :)
