The F75 utilises Felt’s top end aluminium frame. The butted and hydrofromed 7005 aluminium frame of the F75 is a work of art. This bike is a testament to how far modern bike designers can go with metal.
Light, stiff, fast and good looking. The F75 could well be all that you ever need.
As for the drivetrain, what else is there to be said about Shimano 105... Utterly dependable, accurate and stylish. It’s the perfect match for the F75.
Felt have an enviable reputation for bikes with excellent geometry and the F75 is no exception. Quick to accelerate or in a sprint. Poised and capable during steep ascents. Pinpoint accurate in the bunch or when throwing the bike into corners.
Thanks to the carbon blade fork up front and the carbon seatpost underneath you, the ride is far from harsh or uncomfortable. The fork and post do a significant amount of work at cutting out chatter and buzz from the road surface.
And did we mention how gorgeous the bike looks? Stylish decals, deep paintjob, smoothed welds. And it’s as well put together as it is well designed.
Aluminium still has a whole lot to offer. Principally you can have an amazing frame built up with equally amazing componentry for a whole heap less than a similar price carbon bike.
Carbon bikes at this price – or even above - will have a heck of a time trying to keep up the F75. It’s the connoisseur’s choice.

After doing a fair bit of on-line research and narrowing down the bikes I fancied, it came down to price and Merlin's cycles were by far the cheapest anywhere for a Felt F75 (even 2nd hand bikes were very close to their new price).
Ordered and true to their '10 day build' promise my bike arrived by courier 10 days later, very well packaged, just had to carefully unpack and attach the handlebars add the pedals I'd bought and took 'her' out for a very short and (for me) a relatively quick 8 miler. Absolutely chuffed to bits with the bike. It's light, gear changes are snappy and looks fantastic in the black paintwork.
This is my first road bike and the Felt F75 is more than I expected. Light and fast, after a longish (45 miles) ride I still felt comfortable and fresh. The bike arrived within a week and well packaged and it is a lot of bike for the price with great specifications from Merlin.
I purchased this bike from Merlin Cycles for the great quality of Felt bikes and the great value that Merlin Cycles were selling it for. I went for the built option so had to wait 10 days for delivery. Bike arrived boxed and bubble wrapped. There was a small amount to set up like the handle bars and stem. Gears also needed a small amount of fettling to get them right. Worth all the wait and I am over the moon with my new Felt. Have done a couple of rides now and the bike is much, much more than I expected
