Crappy pic in my basement kid's playroom but with the deep freeze we are in right now, gonna be a while until I can get some decent ride pics.
2012 Felt Brougham, fixed side.
My second singlespeed/fixed bike in my stable, the first being a 2013 All City Nature Boy. I love the Brougham's vintage looks. The bike shop I frequent has had it on display for a long time, it always catches my eye! Owner made me a good deal on it

Sweet frame! Post some photos once you get her all done.

I can keep up with everyone, I am not fatigued like I was on the old one. I can throw it around easier than my 26 as well. I thought it was going to take awhile to get use to the bigger size wheels, but that was gone after about 5 minutes! Love Love Love this bike. Memphis, TN
I've put about 80 miles of trail on this bike and absolutely love it! Great handling bike!
That frame is beautiful jonathan_sykes81 ! Alot of nice bikes in this thread! Makes me wanna sell my Sette' 26 and upgrade to a Felt MTB.
Here's the 2004 Felt F1x I acquired in Dec. I got it for the gravel races I will be competing in this spring. I plan on doing the Land Run 100 in March & the Dirty Kanza 200 in May.
Built up my Nine Race frame as a rigid, single speed, 29er. =)
Frame: 2012 Felt Nine Race
Fork: Salsa Cromato steel fork
Bars: Felt 680mm stock bars with ESI chunky grips
Brakes: Tektro Draco with 160mm front and rear
Front wheel: WTB Speed Disc i23
Rear wheel: Cheap Sta-Tru wheel from Amazon.
Crankset: Raceface Ride with a N/W 32 ring and 20 cog on the back
Chain tensioner: Surly Singleator
Tires: WTB Prowler 2.1 tires
Felt Q720 - 2011 in Moto Green
Felt Q720 2011 - in Moto Green Color. 1x9 drive with Rock Shox TK fork.
2014 Felt Edict Nine 3
2014 Edict Nine 3. Rock Shox upgraded the fork to a Reba RL after the facory Recon Gold was bad from the start. Pretty impressive bike with the 142 rear and thru axle front end. The big 2.4 tires I put on are not for this bike. Switched back to 2.2 tires and it rolls like it should, fast. Switching from an Epic and not one bit disappointed with the performance of this bike. Plus I can work on this shock without sending it in to Fox for annual maintenance.
MY FELT FA WAS STOLEN!!!
I know, it's not a MTB, but I am forever grateful for any tips leading to the recovery of my road baby. This bike was built from a very rare 2011 Felt FA frameset, and has a lot of time and sweat in it's build, and subsequent riding. Probably worth $2500-$3000. I just put a bunch of $$ in chainrings, cassette, chain, carbon bars and stem. If you see it, contact me.
Wow that sucks! I'd go talk to the local bike shops in your area.

Done that, also hit all the local swap meets this weekend. Registered on StolenBike Registry.com, and have set up 40 recipes on IFTT to search CL and Ebay. I'm on it, I lost 3 bikes the other day, about $4000 worth. I want these azzholes caught, and they better pray the cops find them before I do...
Wow... Sounds like you're on top of it. Are you going to turn this into your insurance?

I dig those cranks. I have a set of RaceFace Rides in white on my Single Speed Haro however I bent them. Where'd you pick your cranks up at?
i picked them up with a 10% discount from chain reaction cycles..

2014 Felt 7 Eighty
I just purchased a 2014 Felt 7 Eighty last week. I did a good bit of research before I found this bike. I knew I wanted a hard-tail 650b and I did not have a ton of money to drop on a bike. I am VERY happy with this bike.
I live in Minneapolis, MN.
My bike: Felt 780 (stock for now)
Not an mtb, but still a Felt. 2013 TK3. Added a Shimano Sora front brake, just put some Continental Gatorskins on there yesterday, Thomson stem showed up Friday, new Fyxation bullhorn bar ordered yesterday. It is a fixed gear running 48:15. I am using this bike solely as my commuter and fun ride bike. I don't do the whole velodrome or track stuff, nor am I a "hipster". I went with this for the ease of maintenance and fun factor when riding. I love the look and ride of this bike, so I am extremely happy with my purchase. If I decide to get back into mountain biking, I will definitely check out their line of mountain bikes.
Picture taken in commuter night mode with my lights.
The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.
2015 miles: 301/5000
Pretty bike man! I dig it.
