    20" fat ebike conversions

    Bored with super 73 and its many clones out there, there are kids bikes with the 20x4" fat wheels but was thinking they would look cool converted but with a banana seat and seat stays with tall bars or apes, the market is flooded with crappy clones everywhere with uncomfortable riding ergos and...

    Biggest rims to fit a Felt deep 6?

    I have a new 2015 Red Baron which has the same frame as the deep 6, looks like there is space for much wider rims but I am not sure, the back looks fine, more unsure about the standard front forks although slimmer tyres would be fitted on the rims, I am hoping I can get some 26x80mm rims in...

    Widest 26" rim that fits a new shape felt cruiser frame!

    Just wondering what is the widest tallest rim I can fit on my felt red baron frame same as the deep 6 frame? I have 26" x 50mm rims as standard, would like to fit 80mm rims but thought I could only do that with a 24" rim, seems like I have a lot of space eyeballing it to fit the 26" rims in...

    Headlight mounting suggestions?

    I have a vintage headlight which has the mount attached to the body of the light, the other end would slide over a headset mounted bracket usually but as I have a bmx stem on my felt this bracket will not fit, I would prefer to mount it via the brake hole on the forks but cant find a bracket...

    Felt grips?

    What have folks done to change the grips on the 3 speed felts? I would like to fit some nicer grips on my new bike when it comes and I don't care much for the standard grips, I have seen grips that allow for twist grips on ebay but want something nice not tacky! Any ideas?

    Futuristic cruisers for the next generation?

    I love this site and love all the wild and wacky builds folk do on here, but was thinking instead of looking back at retro what about a trend for looking into the future while keeping a cruiser type theme, i.e an ultra modern cruiser, super slick with space age modern materials, some off the...
