The F95 offers the ride and handling of much more costly bikes at an unbeatable price. This is a proper road bike. Extremely well put together. Built to be fast and fun, topped off with a component choice that offers accuracy and durability.
This is the best starter road bike that we’ve had in for a very long time, perhaps even the best ever.
Felt’s butted 6061 aluminium frame offers an impressive level of comfort whilst still retaining a high level of responsiveness. You can ride all day on the F95 and never tire of its handling.
With its carbon blade fork and similar geometry to Felt’s F1 and FRD bikes, the F95 looks and rides like an expensive bike.
The Shimano Sora drivetrain is slick yet bombproof and in conjunction with the FSA Tempo compact chainset offers a wide gearing range capable of winching up the steepest of climbs.
The size-specific speccing of different width handlebars and different length crank arms is typical of Felt’s attention to detail and is something that really helps keep the F95 behaving consistently no matter what size the bike is.
Felt also provide the brake callipers. Sometimes own-brand callipers are poor performers but that’s not the case here. Felt’s Dual Pivot callipers are strong performers. They also come with slot-in cartridge pads which makes for easier pad replacement as well as a firmer braking feel.
The wheels will last you a very long time indeed. Felt’s own R4 hubs laced to decent Alex R500 rims. These strong hoops are worth keeping hold of even if you upgrade to a different wheelset in the future. They’re a great pair of year-round on UK-roads wheels.
The F95 is a bike you can live with and grow with.
Please note: Build time on bikes is usually 7-10 days. If you require the bike sooner then a pre-boxed 90% built version may be available. Click here for details of the pre-boxed version.

Fantastic bike at a great price. Delivery took 7 days, and was well packaged. Once the bars and pedals were on, it was ready to ride!
Lovely bike, and absolutely fantastic valve. The bike arrived superbly prepared too - well done Merlin!
Just buy one! If you are reading this it's probably because you are looking for an entry level road bike, in which case don't waste anymore time, just buy this bike. I bought this bike as an entry level road bike in addition to my mountain bike so I wondered how I would get on with it, the answer - no problems at all. I have found this bike to be very comfortable, even the seat seems fine to me - something other reviewers have complained about. This is a great looking bike that is pretty light and seems well built. As a mountain biker I wondered how I would could cope with the reduced power of rim brakes compared to disc brakes but have been pleasantly surprised by the stopping power available. The rear mech changes faultlessly but the front is somewhat "industrial" when changing to the small chainring, not sure If this is normal but it works and is the only fault I have found so far. If you like the look of this bike just buy one before they run out of stock and you miss out.
This is my first road bike. I could not believe the value for money, I am really happy with my purchase, it's a beautiful looking bike and the performance is exceptional. I have had it a week and done about 60/70 miles already and can't fault anything other than me awkwardly trying to get used a road bike. Only draw back is no threaded beads for a back bike rail for pannier racks, easily solved with p clips. Delivery came much sooner than expected so I am delighted with Merlin thus bothering to write this review! Cheers guys
This is my first road bike. Excellent value for money, a really great entry level road bike and looks cool.
Went for the built option and was surprised to find it delivered within a few days.
