Felt Dispatch 9/80 (2020)

$ 649.00

Availability: 7 in stock





Lighter and quicker than Plus bikes on most terrain, the Dispatch series of bikes are still capable of true mountain biking. The 9/80 is Felt's most affordable 29er and a much better choice than a dual-sport hybrid for multi-surface riding.

New for 2020 is a 1x single chainring up front drivetrain, providing a full gear range from super-low hill climbing gears to higher gears for fast single track and rail trails without a front derailleur.

The Tektro Hydraulic disc brakes provide impressive stopping power, and the SR XCM fork has 100mm of suspension travel which is the perfect amount for most cross country riding.
