    2019 Felt Compulsion 3

    Anyone know anything about this bike? Reviews, etc. I can only find limited reviews, such as one single review on YouTube. I dont think Felt even offers a "compulsion" model anymore?

    I'm in the Denver area and trying to find a good full suspension bike for the area, preferably on sale / last year's model. I found the Felt for what seems like a good price for what you get, but there is very little information anywhere out there.

    Just looking for any insight into Felt and specifically this model

    Felt dropped the Compulsion, and Decree lines for 2020. But I don't think that's indicative of anything negative. They also went away from numberinging their Edict lineup (1, 3, 5). I'm also in CO, and was finding it hard to find a bike in my price range that was quality, and would meet my riding needs. My searching found Felt to be on par with the other big names (Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Giant, Scott, GT, etc....).

    I initially was locked in on a 2019 Felt Edict 5 as I wanted a Carbon bike. And at $2300 it was pretty enticing, but I just wanted a little more suspension travel. Then I stumbled onto a deal for a 2019 Felt Decree 3 that was only $300 more. So that's what I ended up with. I did see a Compulsion online, but it went out of stock before I could buy.

    So while there aren't alot of reviews on the particular model you are looking at, there is enough info out there for you to feel confident in getting one of their bikes.

    Not much of a review, but it gets reviewed here (last one):
    The Mountain magazine bike test - Mountain Magazine

    I know it's one level above what you are looking at but:

    Sorry I have just realised that it is a different bike you have. I was looking for some information on the Edict 3 2019 if anyone has one.
    Many thanks
