Product Details

2012 Felt Bicycles B16

Fast even standing still, Felt's B16 is your ticket to triathlon and time trial stardom. This full-carbon wind-cheater will satisfy your desire for maximum velocity with its ultra-narrow frame that virtually vanishes when viewed head-on. Internal cable routing, a chainstay-mounted brake, an aero seatpost, horizontal rear dropouts and cutouts for both wheels barely disturb the air flowing around the bike. Plus, it's decked out with Felt's aero carbon fork, their slick TTR-4 wheels, a precision-shifting Microshift/Shimano Ultegra 20-speed drivetrain, and a lightweight aluminum base bar with aero extensions.

      Comments:

      Once I started riding the bike I was able to tweak it to my own size and comfort. The bike has a lot of adjustability and nice components that can always be upgraded as the needs arise. Have had the bike now for 10 months and I keep my eyes on upgrading as parts wear out. My interest in cycling in general has increased largely in part to this bike as well. As a result I am in much better shape and have increased my overall health and fitness.

            Comments:

            This bike is a great deal for the money. I shaved nearly 4 minutes from my sprint triathlon time after only 2 weeks of owning it. It is responsive, stiff, and climbs like a bat out of hell. The components it comes with are sufficient for 1 season, but with time are worth upgrading as the frame is fantastic and with top notch components should make a good rider an excellent one. Did I mention what a good looking bike it is as well? Felt has hit it out of the park with this entry/mid level carbon bike as it races par with bikes that are [$]more.

            Comments:

            The bike is simply the best carbon fiber tri bike for the money. I'd easily put it up against the Cervelo P2C. The wheels are deeper than normal, providing a great training set and a good racing wheel. It is a little heavier than I imagined, but not bad. Components are good all around. Ultegra would've been nice on this level bike but the price would have been raised of course. Handling is a huge upgrade from my Trek 1000. I qualified for Duathlon Worlds because of this bike!
