2016 Felt Bicycles 7 Eighty

Felt's 7 Eighty captures the essence of adventure that lies at the very heart of mountain biking. It boasts an efficient, quick-handling 6061-aluminum frame and a 100mm-travel Suntour fork to soak up the bumps. 27.5-inch wheels deliver the rollover ability of a 29er with the playfulness, strength, and quickness of 26-inch hoops. Plus, the 24-speed SRAM/Shimano drivetrain with SR Suntour cranks has plenty of gears for any terrain, while the Tektro disc brakes give you confident stopping power and the Felt seat, bar and seatpost offer ride everyday durability.

    Comments:

    I did a good amount of research into what kind of mountain bike I wanted. I would consider myself to be in-between a beginner and intermediate. I definitely wanted a hard-tail bike and I knew I wanted the wheels to be 650b/27.5 inches. There were not a ton of bikes that fit this criteria in my price range. I found the Felt 7 Eighty online and was lucky enough to locate it at a nearby shop. I went to look at it and fell in love with it! So far, I have ridden this bike several times around the local mountain bike trails and I keep enjoying the bike more and more. I am very happy with this bike!

    Comments:

    Love this bike! I am able to commute around Portland Oregon in the rain, sun and whatever the elements. Portland has many opportunities to avoid the "rush" of hectic cyclists and motorists. Having a MTB, I'm able to turn my commute into a trail/off-road adventure to work or school. I know one of the comments mention "it could be lighter" but that is meaningless. It's 600 bucks, light enough to not complain of the weight....I got a mountain bike anyways so of course they would weight more than any other commuter. It weights about 33lbs. Enough about the weight! This bike is amazing! I shift effortlessly uphill or around town, through/around traffic. I am able to keep up with cars around downtown Portland. All of Portland for that matter. With the fenders and headlights, I feel like I can go over anything with this bike. The 27.5 inch tires give me the ability to roll over anything but just nimble enough for a quick steering response... The disc brakes make it easier to stop when it's raining and keep the brakes out of the mud that I constantly find for some strange reason. :) If you're looking for a bike that is obviously meant for mountain biking but can also be used as a commuter, this Felt is great!
