If a person had to choose one bicycle manufacturer to be loyal to for the rest of his or her life it would be hard to think of a better company than Felt. Felt produces extremely high quality bikes in every catagory while keeping their prices within the reach of the common schlep/monkey. The suggested retail price of the Felt Nine Trail is a completely reasonable $649.00 which could easily be whittled down to an even $600.00 by talking nicely to your local Felt dealer. The same goes with the Felt Nine Sport. The $949.00 SRP could turn into a cool $850.00 if one played their cards right. Unbelievable prices for two great entry-level 29er's.
No need to thank me, I'm just trying to keep things simple...
