Anyone know about "Felt" bikes?(7 posts)

Anyone know about "Felt" bikes?TNRyder

I stopped by a local shop today, and saw these bikes in the showroom. They looked nice, and are priced well. The F85 is $600 with 7005 frame, and 24 spd drive train. (Tiagra, Sora mix) Didn't have a chance to check out the fork, as the bike was still in the box. They had a few higher end bikes on display.

If anyone knows anything about these bikes, plz let me know. I would much rather buy from a local shop than from an E-tailer. You get to test ride and make sure the fit is good, and you get the support!

they are seen as fine mid-range stuff. I would guess they are knocked up in some factory out East, and then sprayed up for Felt, as lotsa stuff is now.

I'd say if it fits, go for it - you are probably sharing a frame with a bunch of other riders on different names anyway.

The geometry and the ride have never held me back.

Incredible setup for the price! My wife loves to ride her F50 that she picked up for $1200 w/ a 105/Ultegra mix and has stood up quite well...

I looked at the Felt 50 very closely and was probably hours from purchasing one when i found a new Trek 2300 for the same price.

The Felts look like really good bikes, and I still kind of wish I'd gone with the Felt since they are not nearly as predominant as Trek.

If you haven't checked out Felts website, you really need to. www.feltracing.com

Where in TN are you?

Looked at the F50 and F45, was really torn too and opted for a Klein Qcarbon. I was really impressed with the Felt bike, its ride and component set (and its price point). I just didn't see enough people riding the bike to feel comfortable owning one. I think it is a sleeper, and will take off in a year or two.

Hope this helps.
