Didn't the PB community just decide the other day that rims over 25mm are no bueno for tires under 2.5"?

I bought a new bike, like an actually actual new one. It was alright.

What Did You Get For Christmas?
2014 Felt Compulsion LT3! LBS has it on sale (for me special price, my friend!) at under 2 grand! Maybe not totally uberbike status, but it's got a pike on it, and it's my first new new bike since the inexpensive hardtail I started on! Maximum stoked!

What Did You Get For Christmas?
I put a down payment on a swanky, new, carbon fiber uberbike! Oh, and some, like, movies and candy and stuff. And a novelty coffee mug proclaiming my maternal superpowers despite my lack of maternal status.

Felt Compulsion 10 – Review
Riding a '08 compulsion I built from a NOS frame last summer! Very fun, albeit a bit heavy, bike. Active suspension, works decently well under most conditions, but the shock heats up and fades easily, and the frame is on the flexy side of things. The issue is they were running long, somewhat thin chain stays across the range with long, long, long upper rockers with not a ton in the way of bracing so the rear would bounce and twang easily. That and they were early in the iterations of the design and suffered from a lot of pedal kickback and chain slap from hell. The compulsion at least climbed pretty darn well despite its weight, but the bikes definitely had a "long travel XC machine" feel to them rather than an aggro, intense tackle-everything bike feel like you would have think they would have had. About to pull the trigger on a '14 LT3 for more than 50% off at my LBS though. A very worthy upgrade and I can't be more stoked about it.
