For some people Felt Bikes may have the image of a multinational corporate bicycle group. Because, in addition to a complete BMX line, they also offer cruisers, moutainbikes, race bikes and much more. But what most people don't know: Felt Bikes does really have a BMX background that actually goes as far back as the 1980s. But first things first.Felt Bikes FAQ

Felt Bikes History
Felt Bikes founder and name sponsor is former motocross mechanic Jim Felt, who originally developed a trial / triathlon frame for Johnny O'Mara - one of the superstars in motocross. With this frame it was O'Mara's plan to get in shape for his races. During his free time O'Mara participated as an amateur at triathlon competitions and established a reputation for Felt in this discipline. His successes in races and his high quality products paved the way for co-operations with Easton and Answer.
In 2001 Felt Bikes was revived by the new partners Bill Duehring and Michael Müllman. At that time Michael had with SportImport already a strong distribution channel with a BMX background. Founded in 1981 in Berlin he had focused on the distribution of foreign BMX brands like GT and layed the foundation for one of the strongest BMX distributions in Germany. In addition to Felt SportImport now carries famous brands like Odyssey, G-Sport, Flybikes or We The People.
By the way, kunstform?! owner Seppl Pospischil has been a SportImport team rider since 2002. Originally sponsored by Flybikes/Suelo he joined the Felt team in 2006. If you have a bike shop close by that carries Felt, then just talk to the guys. Seppl is regularly on the road throughout Germany and maybe he will also come to your city.
In the beginning the focus of Felt Bikes was on complete bikes. Now Felt offers you BMY frames and select additional parts for a very good price-performance ratio. And with Scotty Cranmer (USA), world champion Michael Sommer and newcomer Felix Kirch Felt Bikes has a killer team that should convince the last skeptics.
