Felt Racing

Felt is an American bicycle manufacturer based in Irvine, California. Felt specializes in high-end bicycles at low prices. In the early 1990s the company was founded by Jim Felt. Felt have managed to keep prices low by having no formal advertising campaign, choosing to let brand recognition come from word-of-mouth. Felt has gone from strength-to-strength, going from just six bike models in the USA to over 140 bike models, sold across 27 countries. Felt have created a niche group of highly skilled and dedicated people who work together to create bicycles that consistently exceed their riders’ expectations by providing a sense of individuality, inspiration and pride in ownership. Felt are not governed by their competitors’ measurements of success – the desire to push beyond the limits of technology never allows Felt to rest on their laurels. As their universal mission statement suggests, Felt’s reason for existing is “To design, develop, and deliver the best bicycles in the world. Period.”

Tern Joe C21 Folding Bike

Tern Joe C21

Tern Joe C21

The folding bike that I use for part of my daily commute – the train company only allows folding bikes on during peak periods.   I have a 15 minute ride from the station to office and used to ride a 20″ wheel folding bike.  I found them too unstable so replace it with a full-size folder.  Never heard of Tern.  Not surprised and you probably won’t for much longer.  Why?

Tern is owned and run by Joshua Hon and Florence Hon, who also happen to be the son and wife (respectively) of Dr. David Hon, owner of Dahon bikes. In a surprise move in summer 2011, Joshua decided to leave his father’s company and set up on his own, bringing his mother and a number of other Dahon employees with him. There’s nothing unusual in the prodigal son wanting to fly solo; indeed, the name “tern” is that of a bird, metaphorically spreading it wings. But matters are complicated by the fact that Tern is using many of the same patents and copyrights as Dahon bikes.
