We're excited to carry Felt bicycles because no matter how you ride, Felt makes the ideal bike! It's no surprise when you learn more about the company.
The man behind the name, Jim Felt, made a name for himself in motocross as an ace mechanic. And, it was while supporting one of the stars of motocross that Felt built his first bicycle frame, a time trial/triathlon model. That led to Felt’s first successes in cycling and they came before he even had a name for the company.
Word of Felt's notoriously fast frame spread quickly, which led to a call from Easton Sports. Easton was relatively new to the bicycle industry and needed a product engineer for its fledgling bike program. Felt brought his cycling know-how and Easton provided a crash course in metallurgy. This partnership resulted in more victories.
Felt’s reputation as a guy who understands how to go fast was sealed. In 2001 Bill Duehring and Michael Müllmann partnered with Jim Felt to expand the prestigio us name into a broad offering of road and tri bikes, mou ntain bikes, and then even cruisers and commuter bikes.
Today, Felt utilizes carbon to produce one of the most aerodynamic time trial/triathlon bicycles ever created. Plus, their Equilink suspension design keeps their full-suspension bikes flying up the mountain ahead of the pack. And, with an all-star team of riders racking up victories in everything from the local cyclocross series to European road racing, Felt's awesome innovations will continue to stay one step ahead.
Felt's motto is: To design, develop, and deliver the best bicycles in the world. Period. Come into our shop and to check out some Felt bicycles and find out what that motto can do for you!
