If you are a fans of bicycling competitions, we don’t think that we need more introduction of the FELT brand. FELT is bicycle manufacturer based in California, USA. They’re well known of sponsoring Tour de France and other time trial / triathlon competitions. With their proven track records and all the good components listed above, build quality and ride quality is guaranteed.
At the start from the flat, our photographer was riding fast with the help of extremely smooth bearings and lesser rolling resistance from the 29 inch tyres. As others were all riding 27.5 inch, he was tailgating the first rider all the way with frequent use of brakes to avoid ramming into the front runner. And as we were approaching uphill, the bigger wheels size was starting to cost him more energy to move upwards. And as he reached our destination, he was already dead beat to take any photo LOL. And that’s why we don’t have any outdoor photos for this review LOL.
However, the downhill capability of this FELT Nine 30 is insanely fast! It recorded a 70 km/h top speed on our wireless bicycling computer. All of us started with just a few strokes of pedaling and let the bicycles rolled on and the skinniest fella i.e. the photographer came up to be the fastest! That explained the lesser rolling resistance and the quality bearings.
