    We got the Nine Sport, Nine Trail, and Q520 in this week. Pretty adventurous paint. I didn't like it at first, but it's really grown on me. Specs are basically the same as 2010 for the Sport. The Trail has the new acera shifters, which have the trigger under the bar. Much better than last year. I did notice they seem to have put shorter stems on this year (haven't compared the specs) which is nice.

    The Nine Sport color is "Orange Crush". It's orange with sort of a yellowish pearlescent hue to it. I didn't like it at first but I do now.

    [I tried to post pics, but apparently I need three more posts to be allowed to do that.]

    This is great news. I just ordered a '12 Trail from my LBS. Could you at any chance post a pic of the the Trails new color scheme? I was told it is a green/brown combination but was unable to get a picture from the dealer or felt as none were available. Thanks -Bob

    only different specs from last year is the fork, from a dart 2 to a suntour fork, kind of heavy but feels comparable to the dart 2

    WoodnSteel,

    thanks for posting the pictures. I am confused though...is that a 11 or 12? That looks just like the one on the felt site being refered to as the 11?

    Thanks again,
    Ian

    This is the 2012. It looks more red in the pic than it is. It's actually similar to "General Lee" orange.

    Hey guys. While my girlfriend was shopping for a bike we rode some felt 29ers. She rode the trail and i rode the sport. I really want to get this bike in a few months but when i rode it felt very twitchy. Has anyone else rode this bike and had the same experience? The bike was a 15.5 and fit me well. Did not talk to the salesman about it because we were not shopping for me. Im for sure going back to ride it again but wanted to see if i could get some input on here. Thanks in advance.

    I saw the Nine Trail/Sport at my local shop last night. While the Brown does not look great in photos, it is actually pretty cool in person. It is called "Poison Ivy" and they have been throwing around marketing stuff like, "People are 'Itching' to buy this model" and "Yeah, we 'scratched' our heads at that price for that good a bike too"... I like that they went with GEAX AKA tires, much better than the WTB Prowlers and will fit more terrain that most people are buying these bikes for.

    I was really hoping for a 2012, but the only real difference between the two are the fork on the 12 correct? You guys are in Iowa right? I'm in DC and then would need to find someone to assemble it here...hmmm
