Felt DD70 2016
Rides nice, confidence inspiring geometry. It rides like a XC bike. Love the looks of it. It's a great "only bike I own" which means it's not the best at anything but seems to do well in tech, climbing, trails plus the snow and sand capability. It rides a lot lighter than it feels when you have to lift it over the side of the truck bed.
Low spec. Cheap brakes, 3x9 Shimano has never performed very well even brand new. Heavy non-tubeless capable rims.
Newer models come slightly better equipped at this build level so they are an even better deal. If you can get past the pink graphics on the new ones it's a nice bike for the money.
