2013 Felt Cruiser Spread
You always know a Felt Cruiser when you see one. For years Felt has stood above the rest when it comes to creating these bikes with unique design themes and styles that grab your attention. The 2013 Cruiser line has been updated, with eight new bikes that bring the famous Felt quality and attention to detail to more consumers at even lower price points.
Look through the Cruiser lineup, and you’re sure to find more than one Felt Cruiser that speaks to you. Whether it’s the nostalgically themed Deep Six, the all new 1909, the retro Felt Beaumont or something more understated like the affordable Bixby, there’s a Cruiser to match any personality.
The style may be the first thing you notice about a Felt Cruiser, but once you own
one, it’s the quality that stands out. From the materials we use to the way we build our frames to the customized components, these bikes are built to be ridden—and built to last.
When it comes to components, Felt refuses to cut corners. Every Felt Cruiser component is either designed in-house or specially selected to fit the needs of a particular bike. Custom grips, double-crown forks, semi- integrated headsets, CNC-machined aluminum chain wheels, custom matched valve caps, saddlebags and embossed saddle covers—these are just some of the things you’ll find that set Felt Cruisers apart.
Felt is taking that attention to detail a step further this year with the
introduction of a whole new series of Cruisers. New for 2013, Felt is offering a line of 29” Cruisers in addition to our standard Cruisers. Combining all of the style and aesthetic appeal of our traditional Cruisers with the comfort and versatility of 29” wheels, the 29” Cruiser Series will take your next bike adventure to a new level.
The Cantilever frame is the foundation of each of the 29” Cruisers. Each frame is constructed from either aluminum—the best choice for riders who want light weight and maximum corrosion-resistance—or hi-tensile steel, which offers strength and durability at a more affordable price. Felt’s state of the art construction methods allow us to incorporate the swoopy lines and tube shapes that make our cruisers so unique.
One of the highlights of the 29” Cruisers is the unique Sturmey Archer 2-speed kick-back rear hub featured on the Burner and the Rail. Riders will now be able to operate the brake and gears with no hands required. This allows for more efficient pedaling cadence, less maintenance, and no cables to blemish the visual appeal.
So whether you prefer the ride of 29” wheels, high style, or simple, laid-back comfort, there’s a Felt Cruiser with your name all over it.
