    It has the older motor, the E6000. But since I got it on sale, can't kick. The bars are trekking bars. They have a 34 degree bend, which works for me. The saddle is the venerable B67. It is kind to my ancient back, still have to be careful of big potholes. I ordered a magnet yesterday, I am going to try and kill the speed limiter.

    I will warn you, my plan was to get in shape and go back to my Sport.

    Having a motor is addictive. This only works when you pedal, but when you're on a hill, it's a big help. I might get a better ebike at some point, but I suspect I am a hopeless addict now.

    Dang, nice bike! How long have you had it? Felt can be expensive, nice job catching it on sale.

    A little over a year.

    LL Beans has amazing closeout sales. They knocked off several hundred. But if you get a Beans credit card, your first purchase is 15% off, which was another 360 off. I don't think they were expecting me when they came up with that idea.



    It is a nice bike, but the front end is twitchy. Felt makes a lot of Crit bikes, and I get the feeling they couldn't help themselves. This isn't likely, but I am thinking about getting a different fork for it.

    Swapping parts out is always neat. Plus you get to buy new tools when needed. :)
