    2013 F29 1, Why so little love?

    Looking to buy a new bike. The 2013 29 F1 looks to be a decent bike. Why so little love in reviews and on the forum?

    I'd guess that, since the price difference isn't huge (~$300, MSRP,) that most people are relenting to the siren song on carbon fiber and buying a Carbon 3.
    Personally, I'm probably ordering a Flash 2 next week. I'll be selling off the drivetrain anyway (stubborn single speeder...) so it doesn't make sense to spend the money on the 1, making a much bigger difference in price to jump to the Carbon 3.

    That, and I'm not a big fan of the graphics on the 1. Waaaaay too much white for my tastes.
