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.
Lincoln Nebraska.

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

That frame is beautiful jonathan_sykes81 ! Alot of nice bikes in this thread! Makes me wanna sell my Sette' 26 and upgrade to a Felt MTB.

Here's the 2004 Felt F1x I acquired in Dec. I got it for the gravel races I will be competing in this spring. I plan on doing the Land Run 100 in March & the Dirty Kanza 200 in May.

2014 Felt Edict Nine 3

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.

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, 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...
