Felt DA
This is an amazing piece of engineering. It's just that it's a step up from the B2, and yet I've never felt it was an extension of my body the way I did with the B2. The position i[...]

It all started about three years ago when several friends talked me into getting a road bike and start training and racing. After doing so, it wasn’t very long I was asked to do my first sprint triathlon. Now although it was a bit of a s[...]
