2012 Felt B12 Gloss Nickel 50Cm // Tri Bike Frame Frameset 650c
Felt B12 – Frame and Fork
The Felt B12 follows the sound structural tale of a flagship frame mould finding re-use as an affordable sibling. In this case, the mainframe is essentially the same as that used for Felt’s DA series bikes. However, the front end has been modified to use a conventional aero fork rather than a leading edge bayonet-type set-up.
The down-tube is still profiled to wrap round the back of the fork and the front wheel though. You get an oversized BB30 bottom bracket in the deep-keeled belly of the frame and a broad wheel-hugger that holds the forward-kinked aero seatpost in a flush-fit clamp.
All cables heading rearwards from the cockpit dive into the frame just behind the stem too. There are conventional bottle cage mounts on both down and seat tubes, with a Torhans triangular aero bottle supplied for the latter as standard fit.
Integral screw adjusters hold the rear wheel secure in the horizontal slots and the frame is fully compatible with the latest electronic shifting set-ups.
