    Cyclingnews Felt 29er review....actual cons (and pros)

    It happens so rarely that it's heartening to see an actual industry review....not one that glazes over the negatives and trumpets the positives so as not to alienate the sponsor.

    With the anemic industry reviews and the...er...inconsistency of some user reviews (please see "trolling") it's difficult to find some actual information. Glad to see an actual review every once in a while.

    Makes me hopeful for the future....

    Good honesty. Makes me want to read more of their reviews. Take note MBA, this is how you sell magazines.

    James Huang (Angry Asian) writes very good reviews
    99% of the problems and questions posted here would be answered if people actually walked into a bicycle shop and asked

    Totally agree! My new bike came with a 730mm carbon bar and I immediately cut it down to 690 and it is still wide.
