Felt RXC XC Hardtail

You may be just getting started in cross-country or X-Terra racing, and you’re looking for a bike that is built upon a rock-solid design platform. Anyone will tell you that frame is the heart and soul of any bike, so it’s gotta be spot-on. By using the exact same superlight Aluminum/Carbon 1375 gram frameset as the more-expensive RXC Pro, the RXC has you covered. It’s built up with a XT/LX/Deore 27-speed component mix, and features a high-performance Manitou Axle Elite fork w/lockout. After sizing up the competition, you’ll find the RXC is peerless.

Strength:

superlight frame that is solid and responsive. great component set up for the money. Love the manitou fork with lockout!

Weakness:

none as of yet

After researching a bunch of cross country bikes I narrowed my results down to the felt rxc. The bike shop was able to get me an 05 model from the factory for cheaper than the 06. with the money I saved I put on a few higher end parts on it. This bike takes off! it feels alot less than 25 pounds. I have only had it for less than three months and already I am acheving considerably faster times at my favorite trail. You cant get a better bike for this price period. Any rider looking to step up from the weekend warrior status entry level competion should consider this bike.

Great frame, good groupset for price and excellent components

A great all round set up for a very reasonable price. Same frame at RXC Pro so easy to upgrade as required.

Strength:

Superlight frame, good components. This bike climbs like a rocket. I shopped around for two weeks before making up my mind. The bike shop cut me a deal on an 06 model. I love the fork lockout I've been out of biking for three years and I'm very picky about what I buy.

Weakness:

None! If you can find a deal on this bike like I did buy it.

The only thing I'll change on this bike is upgrade the trigger shifters. If you want a race bike at a great price buy it.
