Felt Bicycles now available at Kinetic Cycles

Enve Carbon Test Program

With the onset of summer, there truly won’t be a better time to start thinking about your ‘best bike’ now that the winter bike is firmly tucked away.  Everyone knows that wheelsets make an enormous difference to the behaviour of your bike; lower rotational mass and greater lateral stiffness lead to better climbing prowess and a smoother, more effortless ride.  There are currently no finer Road and MTB wheels than those produced in the US by composite supremos ENVE.  Their range of Aero adapted wheelsets will transform any bike in an instant.  We are an Enve pro shop and currently have a set of 700c 45mm deep “classics” and a set of 29er AM wheels to strap to your bike for you to experience just what a difference these can make.  Various offers are open to all who participate on the program so don’t delay, book your wheel test today.

Here are some magazine snippets on Enve carbon wheels:

“Fantastically light, yet impressively durable and responsive” – What Mountain Bike

“A sublime ride enchancing experience” – MBUK

“The very best wheels we’ve ridden” – Cycling Plus

Moda Finale, finally

We first saw this bike in a pre-production version back in August and all we could say was “wow”. Now, after being launched at the London Bike Show in January to much fanfare and industry excitement, the 2013 Moda Finale is in Stock.  The frame is a mixture of High Modulus and Super-High Modulus carbon fibres and features  a full aero setup, full carbon tapered fork, press-fit bottom bracket, full SRAM Red Groupset and a custom American Classic 420 Aero Wheelset.  The complete bike weight is a staggering 6.98kg.  Available now for £3899.99 and for a limited time comes with a Garmin Edge 810 Free of Charge to record the Strava KOM times you’re guaranteed to set aboard the Finale.
