    I shouldn't of done this (Felt HT)

    This is a crosspost from the 29er forum

    I was in my LBS and asked about a HT for some XC riding. I now ride a GT 9r FS. 30lbs
    He said " Take my personal bike for a ride.
    7 rides later, I finally brought it back for some tweaking.
    Here's the weight weenie build

    Felt Nine Carbon frame 2.5 lbs
    full XTR drivetrain
    Formula R1 brakes
    Stans Crest rims on American Classic hubs with ceramic bearings
    Maxxis Aspen tires
    Easton Monkey light carbon bar
    without pedals it's about 19lbs.
    I'm getting the credit card out
    Santa Cruz Tallboy
    Moonlander

    I spent a few weeks on a felt carbon HT 29er--great feeling bike and I really like the geometry-at 19 lbs it must be a friggin' rocket!
