open topic, for anything cycling related.
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...
photo taken the morning I replaced the Polar setup to the Garmin Edge 500. (best bike bit anyone could purchase)
doh... I was wondering
Agree on the Garmin... love mine.
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
What are these salesmen peddling?
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
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
bar ends from goldcross and specs from website below pics
Only concerns are the hydraulic breaks and forks with respect servicing etc. Will need to download manuals
from spec sheet not sure if anything needs upgrading

Still have to properly polish the stripped fram, the San Marco Squdara saddle arrived in blue instead of yellow, and Im still waiting to apply new yellow bar tape and Rollamajig. Slowly slowly for my first build. Record 11speed next year too
