Are those wheels 650s? Or 24"? Photo looked very weird at first glance!

yep wheels are 650c

The gap is intentional, as it was made as the Pave bike.... so bigger clearance, and yes it has plush flex in the rougher stuff, but goes like stink on the smooth!!

If I tried I think I could get the weight down to about 6.1kg without too much effort, but right now she is very happy....

I do love it without the stickers... its hot!!!

photo was taken (AT) f1.8 so there is very little DOF! so that makes it look purty...

Very nice... I like the paint scheme. What is the sensor on the forks as it's not the normal Garmin speed / cadence sensor which mounts on the chain stay ?

Crog, that's a really nice colour; didnt realise felt made such great looking mountain bikes. Seems to have a decent kit as well, but it's about time to ride it hard and dirty, and 'deflower' it. Sure you'll get hot and sweaty, but that's kinda the point :wink:

Yeah mate that Felt is very nice, I only hear good things about them and seriously considered one when I was in the market for a hardtail. I ended up finding a deal on something else to good to pass up but I really rate them.

Your going to freakin love it :twisted: :lol:

Can ya tell me a bit more about those barends? I use them as well, same brand but I have not seen that shape before? interesting....

Yeah haapy with the Felt and baby blue colour A little different from the norm and got it at goldcross for $1550 with pedals and bar ends chaper as it is an 09 model

Not being to up to speed on the MTB spec side of things (I know more about roadys) it appears to have good gear on it although carbon stays worry me a little bit

Only concerns are the hydraulic breaks and forks with respect servicing etc. Will need to download manuals

Think it is about time I shared a few pics of my pride and joy.

Giant Defy Advanced 2

Standard specification as per http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-au/bik ... 306/37460/ with one slight change, swapped the standard cassette for 12/27 to give the old bugger a little help on the hills.
Carbon bottle cages
Polar 200CS CAD computer (Includes HR and Cadence sensors)

Go to the bottom right hand side of your browser and reduce the screen size to 95%, maybe 90. Or reduce the size on photobucket.
