Felt Burner – 2 Speed BMX / Cruiser / SingleSpeed
The Felt Burner is sick bike – a true roots mountain bike experience, harkening back to the hand-built klunker bikes of Marin County’s legendary Repack crew. It’s the distilled essence of mountain biking, with no suspension, no derailleur, no dropper post and a simple, old-school coaster brake.
When it comes to features and specs, the Felt Burner is straightforward, stripped-down and simple. It’s an 18-inch men’s cruiser bike with a leather seat, throwback motocross-style handlebars rolling on 29-inch wheels with wide, stiff 30mm rims. It has a classic cantilever-style aluminum frame with a kicked-forward crank, laid-back seatpost and super-long wheelbase for stability. The Burner is powered by a 3-piece BMX-style crank with classic 2:1 single speed gearing and a secret weapon: hidden inside the hub is a 40% overdrive gear. Just kick back on the cranks to shift gears and leave your buddies in the dust.
We use the Felt Burner for everything from single speed trail riding to coffee runs. It’s also a rad cruiser for the Park City rail trail and bike paths. With the exception of the stock brakes, the Burner is a super-fun, low-fi trail bike. Adding a BMX front brake made it legit and of our Burner rental bikes now have the BMX front brake.
The klunker-style Burner comes in two styles & colors. Besides the red and tan bike you see here, there’s also the Felt Rail [link], available in white or green. It’s basically identical to the Burner other than the paint and a couple of added frame pads.
