They just seem to follow what the rest buy I guess. If it's not the latest or greatest they don't want to talk to you...Well the Revenio definitely looks better. Why do people prefer Trek/Giant/Specialized over Raleigh?
The LBS is a dealer for Raleigh and Felt both, so I did check out the Felt z100. But they are asking MSRP for it.You might also consider the Felt Z series.. the Z85 Z95 and Z100 are in a similar price range for Aluminum frame road rides. Heard good things about the Cannondale Aluminum bikes as well. You may find a LBS that has the 2011 models still in stock for a discount over the 2012s.... the Felt 2011s in some cases have better components than the 2012s.
