Felt Decree 3 – 2019

Telekinesis at its Finest.

When we talk about the Felt Decree 3 here at the shop, one thing usually stands out in the conversation: The crazy amount of control you have. I think Felt has finally invented mind control, because all you have to do it think what you want to do, and it does it.  Except maybe get you tacos, but it will get you to the taco shop at least. This is due to a number of things: 

First, it has 27.5 wheels with a 2.5” Maxxis Minion DHF tire on it. This allows the bike to be incredibly maneuverable, while still giving the bike plenty of grip for the rough and tough stuff. It also means that on the uphill you have a lightweight and fun bike that can pop off features as you push those pedals. Speaking of peddling, you’re in luck: this thing is like a funicular (those European gondola things). Thanks to its steep 73-degree seat tube angle, you sit right above the crankshaft, meaning that every pedal stroke is efficient and is super comfortable while pumping your legs.

But all this pedaling eventually leads to the downhill, and the Decree 3 ain’t no slouch in that department. With its reasonably slack 66.5 head tube angle, the bike responds incredibly well to the rigors of the rough terrain on the downhill. The suspension and bike are fast and lively, creating a super fun mid-travel bike for berms and chunky stuff. Furthermore, with its 27.5” wheels, its gets into turns quickly in the berms, making this a heck of a little racing machine. With its 150mm of front and 140mm of back travel, it can eat up bigger features on the trail with ease, and still race you through the sharp rocky parts. It's really an all-around workhorse that can get you up the trail, down the trail, and to the taco shop with fun and excitement. 

Felt Decree 3  - The Bottom Line

The Felt Decree 3 is a really balanced bike for the best of both worlds. It's climbing game is on point due to its steep seat tube angle, giving you a super comfortable riding position right on top of the cranks. Furthermore, its UHC Advanced Carbon frame is lightweight and stiff, making the uphill pedal a fun and efficient experience. On the downhill, the 27.5” wheels are fast and fun, allowing you to take turns and berms incredibly quickly. It’s short 428mm chainstay help in this department too, making a very maneuverable bike in the winding trails. Furthermore, with its 150mm of front and 140mm of rear suspension, rolling over small and medium features on the trail is an absolute breeze. Its an all-around bike for an all-around good time. Now go eat some tacos.
