"comes with a bottle cage mount. If you have two bikes then buy an additional mount to make it easy to swap the pump between them. Just have to remember to check you have it on the right bike!"
Pros: High Quality

"Handles well and has a high quality finish. As noted on some of the other reviews the pedals are average and the tyres have little "nipples" and so spray up the road grime. You'll need mudguards if you want to use this as a commuter."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, handles well
Cons: needs mudguards

Picture shows mudguards with extra mudflaps at the bottom. Can you confirm that they are included with the item as one reviewer suggests not.

purchsed these ande the mudflaps are definitely not included.

Does the Felt QX90D have a back pannier bracket?

Just bought one and it is a good ride. Due to the disc brakes the rear holes may not line up for all pannier racks but it does have the holes at the top of the rear stay under the seat.
