    Felt Downhill Frame?

    I was looking at road bikes on Felt's website (i know, i know) and I stumbled across this. I had no idea that felt made mountain bikes, let alone a downhill frame. It looks pretty decent but I can't find any info or any specs on it. Anyone know anything about this frame?

    Looks almost identical to an Azonic Eliminator!

    Thats because it's the same taiwan catalog frame, except it looks as if Felt opted to go with a thru-axle version.

    yeah and a pretty poor photoshop at that.
    And does that top tube seat tube junction look a little suspect to you too?? Photoshop'd top tube?!

    yeah, boy, I wanna go right out and plunk down some money on a bike that they couldn't even get together enough to take a picture of. Why even have this on the website? They'd be better off putting a sheet over it and taking a picture and saying, "guess".

    Umm, that whole pic is CG. Thats not a photoshopped photo at all. The TT is just the most obvious part.

    Looks photoshopped to me and it is exactly like the azonic. I would just buy the azonic, better company that has expierience making DH/FR equipment.

    and the Azonic is probably cheaper with a better warranty....the bike is a good bike to have the first 2 years of riding

    SMT you have to admit one thing you woudl like to see changed on the frame is a replaceable hanger! if the frame had that it would be flawless
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    felt has been making bmx and other bikes forever.... i dont think they'd release a product that is crappy although that frame looks like it was outsourcd to another manufacturer, most likely the one that makes frames for azonic

    Well it turns out you can't get this frame in the US anyways.
