On that NB Felt I believe it's got the wider rims and the 12g spokes which should be fine, I just don't know if those rims are double wall or not. Double wall rims are preferable for their strength, the rims on my cheaper Felt were not double walled and thus I upgraded them accordingly for a 212cc build.

The Comet CVT will not line up to the rear sprocket without a jackshaft or off-setting the engine to the far right when mounting, with or without the manic hub adapter.

Nothing is out of my realm,
if it doesn't fit, make it fit! Beer is the answer....what was the question?
A sense of humor costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
