British Inspired 2013 Felt York Road Bike

Urban

Meet the York. Felt’s classic English Countryside inspired road bike, built around a traditional 4130 Cromoly frame. The York is kitted up with the standard bits you’d expect a classic Brit bike to have. Including a threadless quill stem, front rack (wooden bottom), and complete with a skip tooth crankset – the same crankset used on Felt’s steel track bike and a nod to vintage Brtish cycles of the past.

The classic look extends to the fenders, saddle, and handbar grips as well. Where the York makes a modern leap, is the Sturmey Archer 2-Speed coaster brake rear hub laced to Alex rims. Giving the rider two speeds, but retaining the clean look of a single speed.

The York is available in 5 sizes ranging from 51-61, and is available in a single color, Duke Blue. Available now at your local Felt dealer, the York retails for $829.

    In case anyone is researching this bike – don’t buy it! After 2 years I have had so many issues with this beauty – 3 hubs failed (by freezing up), had to remove the fenders as they bend so easily, and the basket snapped off at the metal weld. So poorly made.

    I guess my experience is the opposite. I love this little bike, so smooth to ride, and mine is well put together and has had no issues. I suppose it can depend on a particular bike, or riding styles.
