One of the hardest things about being a smallish company is finding time to do all the things you'd like to do while still maintaining the stuff you have to do. The have-to-do's always win out, which, in our case, sometimes does not leave an abundance of time for the other. Case in point: this blog. Everybody liked the idea when we launched it, but no one seems to have much surplus time to contribute to it. I guess that's a good thing. If our engineers where busy writing posts, you'd have to think it would come at the expense of making some product just a little bit better.

So here it is - since the last entry Felt's own Emma Snowsill and Jan Frodeno won both Olympic triathlon gold medals (insert some metaphor about a broom here), Dave Zabriskie won the US Pro TT Champs, we came within a bike throw of winning the US Pro Road event of the same, Cam Zink is back healthy and absolutely killing it on the mountain bike, Tour of Missouri is about to start, EuroBike is going on, InterBike and the UCI Road Worlds are round the corner, blah, blah, blah. Yikes! Too much!!

That's what makes it cool to work at a place like Felt. It's all-out. Every day is different and pretty much every day is pinned.

So, while the blog has been on the back burner, rest assured what really counts - the bikes - have not. We announced our extension with Garmin/Chipotle-H30 last week and with that you got a look the '09 AR Team Issue. Our new website will be launching in just a few days, but until then, above is a sneak peak of four distinctly different Felt '09 rides. Shown are (top to bottom) the 2009 X:City 2, Nine Team (carbon!), B2R w/Flashpoint wheels and TK2. The entire line is right around the corner. Enjoy!
