Did I get Z85 or F5?
#1
Hello,

I own the 2013 Z85 Felt and love it. Is it worth it to go to the 2012 F5? I have a dealer willing to sell it new for $1485 from $2200. Why has it been sitting this long, $2200???

Thanks,
Bruce

Its all about cash,would you keep or sell your other bike? It would be an upgrade and the price is pretty good and it might be a pound or two lighter. Performance wise you may not notice a night and day difference. Totally up to you as to why would swap a bike that you like and has lots of life left in it.
resale value of the one you have now would be if its clean and want to move it fast you would ask roughly 60% of original value. If its really clean and needs nothing, you can hold out and maybe get closer to 80%. Where I am from, bikes in this price range and higher are tough sells, I only pick them up generally if I think or know I have a buyer
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
