[quote="Tater"]Here are some pics of my freshly assembled Hotwheels 68.
How long have you had your 68? Mine is #16. Did you have problems with the rear gear cluster and did you get the replacement from felt?
I couldn't help myself and made a lot of changes. First replacing the brake calipers with some Avids much better. Then a lay back seat post it opens up the cockpit and the bike has better balance. Then if you really want go fast you change out the crank and get some more rear. The rest is just to my taste.
This is really sweet, but those speed-holed ounces hangin' under the tank don't actually do anything, do they?
Everything else does. I mean you could put a bike license on the #plate.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
Big AL, your 68 looks awesome. I got mine new in the box last month from a guy on the West Coast. I don't know if there are any issues with the rear cluster because I haven't ridden it yet. LOL
For now I'm going to to keep this one bone stock. Is your SN# tag two(silver-black) or three color(silver-black-red)? I'm trying to get a sense of what bikes came with what tags. The info I got from a couple of guys at Felt does not square with what I'm seeing on actual bikes.
My SN-tag is just silver&black its not like yours. You must let felt know that your low S.N. bike needs the replacement rear cog. The one on it now will break soon after you put a few miles on it. They sent it free of charge. I was told they fixed the problem on the later models. P.M. me about what they said about SN# Tags and why they are not the same. Enjoy your 68 I love mine.
big Al, who did you speak to at felt about the rear cog? I called them up and they want me to take it to a dealer and have them contact Felt. They said that I would have to pay shipping one way or another, shoot I wouldn't mind paying shipping if they would send it straight to my house. I have the issue where 1st and 2nd gear slip.
By the way, you did a great job on customizing your ride.
Rydr1, I miss spoke about how I got the replacement. I did talk to a felt rep and he told me to do the same thing. I got my bike from the bike shop so they ordered it and picked up the shipping. If you go that route the dealer should pick up the shipping and put it on for you. Thats what happens when it breaks it just spins. Sorry about that info. Hope you find a dealer near you.
