I currently own a Felt Elite Nine from about 4 years ago. I imagine that this Felt Nine 50 is the equivalent to my bike based on price point and I love the bike. It has served me very well on all types of terrain and currently it is set up for my son to ride - yes they grow up and can ride your bikes so be warned! A couple of adjustments though and it will be back to being my single track go to bike. I have modified mine slightly (I think that goes hand in hand with being a bike geek) to be a 2x10 drive train, Paul Component Thumb Shifters and an H-Bar with Magura Hydraulic Brakes. I also have a different wheel set than the original but the originals are still around and work fine - just being used on a different bike currently.
