    Felt F65X

    Not a mountain bike I know, but thought there still might be some interest here.

    It's our best selling 1800ish dollar cross bike of all time, and it's only been out 6 months or so. People like it.

    Anybody having problems with the headset? Mine lasted through about 5 cross races. I'm replacing it with a sealed bearing headset.

    Are you washing the bike with a pressure washer?

    No. Sealed headset on order, the bottom bearing was hammered with dirt and pitted already.

    Could you feel this or did you discover it after inspection?

    The headset never really took set after initial adjustments. There was play in it, i adjusted it again. We had a muddy cross race and once it got dirty it went downhill from there. Can't really expect much more from it. The bike is awesome outside of that!
