    No 29er Full Suspension this year (2012)?

    Figured that FELT would be on the bandwagon this year with a Virtue or Edict alloy 29er but nothing? Are they one of the only big names left without a 29er Full Suspension?

    Yup. They dropped the balll again. The equilink pedals awesome and they would sell everyone they could make. Dont see why a they cant make it wotk with all the other dual link 29ers out there.

    I did talk to a rep 6 months ago and he said they had one coming but it was like the edict

    Yeah that is a complete bummer. Would love a 100mm travel FS bike by them. However, seems like everyone is going for longer travel 29ers now with things like that Kona Satori, Intense Spider 29, Intense Tracer 29, Salsa Horsethief, etc.

    Anything special going on for the FELT Nine Carbon frames? Just talked to my LBS mechanic and they ordered one for a customer to build up a bike but said it was going to take 6-8 weeks to get it?

    Glad to hear something is in the works, would love to see a "race" full suspesion bike (read 100mm travel max with thru-axle and QR options) and a more "all mountain" option (read 120mm+ travel with thru-axle and QR options).

    Ah, the inevitable tease. Interbike next year, perhaps? Btw, how involved does Jim Felt get with the design of the bikes? Just curious.
