This year started with plenty of good things, first, my swimming skills are improving. second would be my improving health, not to mention getting a few things that I love.
Felt Bicycle Philippines invited me to do a product review of one of their bikes. I asked them, “are you asking me to review a BMX bike?” But to my much surprise… they told me, definitely not! Felt bikes are not actually BMX bikes. They actually have a wide array of bicycles. And so I was tasked to try on one of their bikes! Brand ambassador ang levels!
I waited like days and a surprise email sent to my inbox having a title 2014 Felt Nine 70. I check the specification immediately in the Internet, I was really surprised. It was a really new friend, a 29er bike.
Shocks, bisyo ito…I got a new bike and mom was telling me that it is eating out my space much…because of my 2 bikes already, my 26er mountain bike and a folding. But kebs…hehehe, Mom, magpapagawa ako ng special garage for all these bikes and the more bikes to come! 🙂
My 2014 Felt Nine 70 brought in the office personally by Felt Brand Manager, Joey Ac-Ac. Thank you Joey. So I got the bike! It was a beauty, mostly blue with orange details. My favorite colors! Garsh! Ang ganda ng bike ko! Sheshel levels!
I took an immediate spin. It was so light, say ng paglipad ng Adarna? A bike this feathery weight is so convenient. Walang poise ang masisira sa pag karga ng bike! Ang gaan ng feeling!
I tried it on both road and trails, and the experience was totally different from 26er bikes. The speed is awesome. The ride is so smooth, the suspensions adjust really well on the surface of the road…
I enjoyed every time I put butt on the saddle. So comfy. Hihihi!
The bike was not just bodily felt…soul FELT! Love et…LOVE FELT!
