Strengths:    Looks awesome!

Weaknesses:    Cheap, low quality components.

Bottom Line:   
Had to have the rear hub replaced under factory warantee. Now I enjoy the bike completely. Out of production so this is a moot review. Overall supremely cool design, great wheels, but drivetrain is a POS. Factory flawed hub, but shop fixed it right. Overall happy, but needed work!

Strengths:    I like the tire profile. the floatation size is good for sand here, moab and sedonna. Also traversing slopes are comfortable with the round shouldered profile.

Weaknesses:    Might be just a little short on practicality but that lifestyle never showed me much.

Bottom Line:   
I am a visually oriented person when it comes to cruisers. There in lies the strength of the themed bike. It would look good hanging on my living room wall.

Favorite Ride:   felt hot wheels 68

Price Paid:    $7.00

Purchased At:   Fat Tire Cycles ~ Al

Similar Products Used:   electra ghost 3 spd and electra straight 8. I ride in concrete flood diversion channels and the fat tire bikes give confident grip.

Bike Setup:   Fat Tire Cycles did more than assemby. The rear hub was tuned, the brakes were adjusted, test ridden and examined for quality. I would say buy one of these only from a shop that has great tuners.

Strengths:    Looks very cool!

Weaknesses:    Quality, quality, quality.
You can't back pedal or even stop pedaling without the chain getting slammed between the wheel and frame. The brakes rub constantly and the resistance is brutal. Cheap poor quality components.


Bottom Line:   
I was impressed with the visual appeal of the Hot Wheels Sixty-8 from the cool images available from the FELT Website and was into the Hot Wheels affiliation as well as the 40 year anniversary 68 logo (This year I myself turned 40). Budget wasn't an issue, just wanted a cool bike for recreational purposes that had the quality.
On the first ride it was kinda fun but the chain kept getting stuck between the wheel and frame. Over about 10 rides the chain got stuck more than 50 times. I took the bike back twice to be set up but the problem kept occurring. The third time they totally changed the gear alignment / spacing etc. A total design flaw from FELT who have this bike as their most expensive cruiser. So now my paintwork and chain are damaged and have lost hours of my life due to taking the bike back 3 times with absolutely no compensation.

Similar Products Used:   Trek mountain bike, absolutely no problems for over ten years at less than 1/4 the price.

Bike Setup:   Probably fine considering the questionable quality of the components.
