Stock with upgrades: xtr brakes, ec70 bars, ec90 seatpost, selle itAlia slr saddle, xtr pedals, wolf tooth 32 chainring. Like the bike so far, still trying to figure out my ideal fork setting. planning to switch stem to 70mm -17 degree.
Crappy pic in my basement kid's playroom but with the deep freeze we are in right now, gonna be a while until I can get some decent ride pics.
2012 Felt Brougham, fixed side.
My second singlespeed/fixed bike in my stable, the first being a 2013 All City Nature Boy. I love the Brougham's vintage looks. The bike shop I frequent has had it on display for a long time, it always catches my eye! Owner made me a good deal on it
2013 Edict Nine 60. Stock except for some SPD pedals. Just got it a couple of weeks ago. Only have 3 trail rides it so far, for about 30 miles. Had a Motobecane 700HT 26er. Holy crap the difference. I can keep up with everyone, I am not fatigued like I was on the old one. I can throw it around easier than my 26 as well. I thought it was going to take awhile to get use to the bigger size wheels, but that was gone after about 5 minutes! Love Love Love this bike. Memphis, TN
Built up my Nine Race frame as a rigid, single speed, 29er. =)
Frame: 2012 Felt Nine Race Fork: Salsa Cromato steel fork Bars: Felt 680mm stock bars with ESI chunky grips Brakes: Tektro Draco with 160mm front and rear Front wheel: WTB Speed Disc i23 Rear wheel: Cheap Sta-Tru wheel from Amazon. Crankset: Raceface Ride with a N/W 32 ring and 20 cog on the back Chain tensioner: Surly Singleator Tires: WTB Prowler 2.1 tires
2014 Edict Nine 3. Rock Shox upgraded the fork to a Reba RL after the facory Recon Gold was bad from the start. Pretty impressive bike with the 142 rear and thru axle front end. The big 2.4 tires I put on are not for this bike. Switched back to 2.2 tires and it rolls like it should, fast. Switching from an Epic and not one bit disappointed with the performance of this bike. Plus I can work on this shock without sending it in to Fox for annual maintenance.
MY FELT FA WAS STOLEN!!!
I know, it's not a MTB, but I am forever grateful for any tips leading to the recovery of my road baby. This bike was built from a very rare 2011 Felt FA frameset, and has a lot of time and sweat in it's build, and subsequent riding. Probably worth $2500-$3000. I just put a bunch of $$ in chainrings, cassette, chain, carbon bars and stem. If you see it, contact me.
Done that, also hit all the local swap meets this weekend. Registered on StolenBike Registry.com, and have set up 40 recipes on IFTT to search CL and Ebay. I'm on it, I lost 3 bikes the other day, about $4000 worth. I want these azzholes caught, and they better pray the cops find them before I do...
