When the name Carroll Shelby is brought to our attention, the first thing we all think of is the legendary Shelby Cobra, a car that has to be considered as one of the most popular and iconic in automotive history.

That car propelled the name Shelby to staggering heights. So much so, in fact, that Shelby has become a licensing juggernaut within the industry, having been involved with a number of companies - Classic Recreations and Superformance come to mind – who specialize in building replicas of the iconic vehicle. The latest company to strike a deal with Shelby is Felt Bicycles, which released a special edition line of cruiser bicycles called ‘the Shelby Cruiser’.

The bicycle is made from Felt’s very own hydro-formed aluminum tank frame that also comes with a three-speed Shimano Nexus internal gearing and 36-spoke wheels wrapped in “blue dot” tires to assimilate the look of racing tires. Each of the limited edition bicycles will also come with its own individual badging and serial number to ensure its authenticity. And to ensure that the Shelby image exudes in the “Shelby Cruiser”, Felt decided to splash the iconic Wimbledon White paint finish and accentuated by Guardsman Blue racing stripes in honor of Shelby’s iconic two-tone finish.

If you’re interested in scooping up this limited edition bicycle, you can get one through Felt Bicycles and its retailers for a princely sum of $999.

Though I have seen many bikes, this one also gives a different spice on bicycle world. Having that unique design and style. But still, it looks like an old country style bike to me.

I have seen all the bike in the road bicycle section and I would say that this is not the best bike. However, I think its just a good thing that it carry the Shelby logo.

hmm. Well, I can’t figure out on why car manufacturer keep on extending their merchandise arm..And why this things are being a trend in the world of car industry. Heck! What does its been doing here at the car section?

One of the great deals from Shelby. The color looks so promising, both has a good combination. But hey, its costs $999 just for the felt bicycles.

You’re right, there really shouldn’t be any fuzz on this one. After all, this helps automakers a lot to expand their creativity, which would be useful for their car designs.

Hey, I don’t understand why all the fuss about automakers coming with bikes this time around. I mean if they can really build those two-wheelers, then why shouldn’t day?

Thanks for clearing that one up. I also honestly thought that this bike was developed by Shelby. But even with that, this still looks to be a great ride.

Hey, guys, you probably didn’t notice, but this bike was not developed by Shelby. It was made by Felt, and Shelby simply licensed its colors and logos for use in the bike.

Hahaha! Muscle bike, I like that term, certainly matches Shelby pretty well. But seriously, why are these automakers suddenly going bike crazy, what gives?

Hmm, I am not really fond of the espionage theme that they are addign up for this one, but I am still going to watch this anyway. Definitely looks like a lot of fun.

Well, that one is certainly a surprise, I never though that Shelby would actually join the bike-making craze that’s happening these days. So what are we going to call this one, a muscle bike?

The only thing that makes it special is that it was based from the Shelby cobra. Still, I don’t get why this thing was featured here at car section! I would be happier if they offer engine upgrade package!

Among the bikes that was featured here in TopSpeed, I would say that this one looks so ordinary. Well, I don’t think that there’s something special as well as the features mentioned in here is not that appealing. Fail!
