I've seen the prototype pictures, any news on the carbon framed 29er?
Felt has a fairly good rep with their carbon road bikes, and spec their bikes well.
If done well could be enticing.

Now that my dreams of a carbon Salsa release have been dashed. Any insiders have any info on the carbon Felt arriving on the market?

I'm really surprised that this bike doesnt get more play on this forum. If its priced anywhere near or less than the superfly and weigh less it will be a show stopper.

I agree, pretty quiet on this one.
Felt could make a couple.
One set up like the Nine Pro, perhaps $2600ish, and a top end build to compete with the superfly, ?$3100?.

The Superfly is going to jump up from $3300, in case you haven't heard raw materials are up across the board (metals, resin, etc). The entire industry is bracing for big price increases for 2009. I doubt you will see Felt hit your price points with comparable spec.
