Does anybody know of a dealer in Florida that actually stocks these? I called a bunch and get the same answer. "We can order you one". I would like to see one. I am about ready to call "Felt" direct and see if I can order wholesale. Unfortunately I used their online contact page and never got a response.

felt=good

I used to work at a shop that carried felt, they were one of the rare companies that had their bikes shipped in in reasonable correct tune. As the shop wheelman I can't say where they get their wheels done but they were ussually rather true out f the box. Now of course you need to re true any wheel after a hundred miles to acount for spoke seating and stretch but generally they held up well.
Their one down side isn't really relevant here but they were HEAVY but then ths is from a guy who was riding a 11lb fixed gear at the time5 years ago

gas tank could be real

However, the frame is aluminum and unusually thick with a faux undermount gas tank. Happy Spring!

I have seen somewhere here that the faux undermount gas tank can be made into a real gas tank. Its a matter of fuel inlet and petcock. The welds hold gas!

I get the same response here in the U.K....
I'm sure I've seen a set of instruction photos for converting the faux tank but, for the life of me I can't remember where...

Felt tanks

I've known of these since they came out. A customer of mine is tight with the players at Felt.

There is a large hole in the steer neck, and one in the seat tube to let out pressure during the welding process.

Here is Mason's first bike, engine is a Powder coated 48 skyhawk from a long time ago.
http://www.simpsonmotorbikes.com/CBR1tn.html He is in Long Beach CA and Felt is somewhere nearby, as to where I can't recall.

The tank mod is do-able, but is NOT a cork in a bottle fix.

Mike
