One of the most surreal moments in my career as a journalist was being served lunch by the company founder Jim Felt and company President Bill Duehring. These are down to earth people who simply love what they do, and love showing it off to the world.
Nestled into a quiet corner of sunny Irvine, California, Felt Bicycles is home to some of the most trusted bicycles in the road and triathlon world. We had an opportunity to visit the factory and bring you this exclusive gallery. The whole place is buzzing with people who are genuinely passionate about what they do, and many of them ride their bikes in to work. One of the coolest spots in the factory was a small room filled from floor to ceiling with amazing, top-secret prototype parts. I can't show them to you, but I can tell you that Felt takes aerodynamics very seriously.
