2014 New Belgium Felt Cruiser

I had found this 2014 Felt New Belgium cruiser online for a very decent price. Itís been used but is still in really great shape. Has some scratches but nothing a little work wonít take care off. It was really dirty when I bought it. Its been sitting in the garage for a couple of months now. The only bad scratches are on the headtube where the previous owner strapped a basket to the bars and ended up rubbing on the head tube. I was thinking about buying some scratch x, but honestly I don't mind the spots.

Looks interesting. Would love to see a photo of the entire bike.

Better, way better than average quality for a promo bike.

Condition, though. Someone rode it a lot and had a bunch of accessories scratching it up

Looks like it's been well cared for, but definitely ridden well. The only thing I personally dislike are the handlebars. My bad shoulder started aching the second I saw them! I can't wait to see the full rehab. Excellent find sir.

Sweet bike.

Depending on your size, I think the type of bars from a schwinn collegiate or similar would be nice on it.

Because nothing says "classic cantilever frame cruiser" like an aero recessed headset. Hope it goes together well for you - overall, it looks good.

Out at Recycle Your Bicycle in Goodyear, we had several alcohol-themed bicycles donated, such as a red, white, and blue Budweiser cruiser and a yellow Margaritaville cruiser. Now for some reason TPTB think that these might not be entirely appropriate for giving to a foster child, so we've been putting them aside for re-donation to other nonprofits such as Rusty Spoke downtown, where they can find happiness with responsible adults of appropriate age. In fact, yesterday we had an orange Shock Top cruiser in very good condition make it all the way to final inspection before someone thought "haven't I seen that brand in my local beer cave?", and it too will be put aside for a different destiny (TBD).
