I'm not riding around with pink on my bicycle. If they did the grey and blue version in a 56cm frame I'd bite. But not black with pink. Never going to happen. What were Felt thinking? Not voting.

Probably thought their prospective customers were above all that.

Pink doesn't seem to be slowing the EF team down this year.
Other Felt bikes are coming from Bangladesh so assume this one does too and the frame is fairly standard 6061 aluminium despite the marketing description. Does look good value though with some reasonable components for the price. Although a brand slap on a far east bike it is nice to have a brand with a bit of history. I think they are manufactured by the Meghna group of Bangladesh. Same as many other brands nowadays, Raleigh, Cube, Scott etc. I would see them as slightly inferior to bikes from Cambodia which tend to have slightly better machining quality of the frame etc. I don't know that for sure as many brands are basically importers and can swop factories used regularly to get the best price but expect to see a Bangladesh, Cambodia, Vietnam or similar marking on the box. By sourcing from lower quality cheaper factories it has enabled many big brands to compete on price at entry level prices with factory to retailer direct brands and internet only brands. I think Halfords Apollo range is coming from Bandladesh but Carrera's and above are Cambodia or better. It's always a race to the bottom though expect more brands to be coming from Bangladesh soon for their entry level bikes.
