    That Edict does look good.

    Funny thing is the Edict's FAST suspension design is pretty much identical to my first-gen Trek Fuel 100.

    I wonder if the rest of their full suspension line will utilize it as well.....

    I am interested to see what the specs are on the "budget" 29er's they will be releasing. And yes the Edict does look sick! So with them just sending out the press release for these that means that they will be in-store about mid-September?

    Just found this at random on the web!!
    '11 US Felt Consumer Catalog.. talked to my lbs and he said he should have the dealers catalog with prices/specs shortly here..... I am at a cross between the new Nine Trail (entry level 29'er) and the Q620. Guess it will come down to specs. LBS also said he had a new Q620 in a box and would be building it sometime this week.. I will take pics as soon as he does.

    From what I've seen on the budget 29er its equipped comparable to a Secialized HArdrock Disc 29er at that same price range. I wish they had it at my LBS when I picked up mine.
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.
    2014 Giant Anthem 27.5 here.

    Does your LBS have any of the '11 Virtues? If you get over there, could you see if he can weigh any of them for us??!!

    Unfortunately no... He does not have any Felt full-suspensions in house because his main line is Giant. Talked to him on Tuesday and he has still not gotten the '11 Felt catalog. I am pretty sure that I am going to have him order me a '11 Felt Sport, just waiting until the first to see the actual specs on the bike. From what I can tell it will be an 8spd, but has pretty low quality drivetrain and fork (alivio/acera and Suntour XCM). Looks like I am going to be doing some upgrading pretty quickly.

    EDIT:
    Just found this on the '11 Felts!!!! New site will be live on 9/1
