I have the Smart Sam in the 700x47 on a Velocity Dyad rim. It measures true-to-size. Like all tires with large knobs along the shoulder, the Smart Sam needs plenty of room between the chain-stays. After looking at the Felt website, I would inspect the existing tire fit to see if you have about 6 mms of clearance around the chain-stays, fork and seat-stays.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
