Quality

Quality is without doubt one of the most important factors that we consider when buying bikes, parts, accessories or clothing. As you’d imagine it’s especially important when buying Road Bikes. Let’s take at a look at the sort of things you can look at when trying to ascertain the quality of Felt AR Advanced Road Bike.

The first thing is material. Looking at what Felt AR Advanced Road Bike is made of will give you a really good idea of the quality overall. Take a look at the specs above and you should be able to see the material. It’s then up to you to decide if it meets your expectation.

Similarly you’ll also want to spend some time looking at the features too. Again the table above, listing the features will give you a really good overview. However you should think about the sort of features that you’d expect when buying new Road Bikes. It’s worth writing a list of the “must-have” features so that you don’t end up compromising and missing some important features, or alternatively end up buying an unnecessarily high specced product.

There’s also a lot of merit in checking out the brand of the product and looking at the various brands that are selling Road Bikes. Brands like Felt are of courses extremely well respected in the cycling community so you know you’re getting a fantastic product with them. But if you’re undecided on your product you should write up a list of brands that you’d be happy to buy. It’s a great way of filtering and narrowing down the number of products when you’re searching.

Next up you’ll want to think about the price and use that as a guide to set your expectations of the quality. If you’re buying the cheapest of the options in the Road Bikes category you should probably expect it to not be of as good quality as the most expensive. It sounds obvious of course. But this is where you can get a bit clever and use your combination of features, specs, materials and other factors to work together to get a really good quality product at the best price. We often draw up a list of “must-haves” and use these as filters when shopping online so that you’re only seeing products that meet your criteria. You can then sort by Price>Low to get the best deals.


Comparing Prices

Price, as you would imagine, is the most popular reason for someone buying one product over another. It is the single most important factor in choosing the majority of products we buy. The same goes for Road Bikes.

It’s at this stage of the buying process, when you’re looking at different options, that you should set a budget. Do some research to understand how much roughly you can expect to pay for the sort of level of product that you’re looking for. Then match that to your own personal circumstance and how much you can afford to spend. This will really help you in narrowing down the right product for you.

Felt AR Advanced Road Bike Reviews

Reading reviews is an amazing way of getting a good feel for a product without actually being able to try it or see it first.

There are two different types of reviews, and we also recommend reading both.

1. Expert reviews – In the cycle industry there are loads of really reliable trusted resources for expert reviews. For example if you’re looking to buy a new bike, BikeRadar Bike Reviews are great.

2. Customer reviews – these are probably your best resource for information. There’s no finances or influence involved, they’re purely just honest reviews from customers that have bought and used the product. The reason we love customer reviews so much is because no matter if their view is good or bad, there’s a very good chance that it will be honest and unbiased.

Our best advice is to head over to Chain Reaction Cycles UK and read the Felt AR Advanced Road Bike reviews there.

Based on what we’ve seen in terms of reviews for Felt AR Advanced Road Bike, it really does look like a great buy. So for the review score, we’ve scored it 9.8 out of 10. The average review score for all products in the Road Bikes category at Chain Reaction Cycles UK is 4.2 out of 5.

Owner reviews, as we say, are one of the most important pieces of research that we can do before we buy. So, with that in mind, if you do go on to buy Felt AR Advanced Road Bike or another similar product, like Octane One Kode Commuter Road Bike 2019 reviews or Hutchinson Touareg Gravel Tyre reviews we’d love you to leave a review in the comments below. It will really help future buyers just like you, when they’re looking to buy Road Bikes.


Brand

As we said in the pricing part of the review, brand is a really important consideration, but especially so when looking to buy Road Bikes. But as you’re probably already aware, you’re on to a great choice if you do go with Felt, as they’re a fantastic brand, making amazing products.
