Model/Year: 2009 Back/White/Red F7

Pros: Great price point when originally purchased. Bike has responded to everything I've thrown at it while learning how to ride and what kind of riding I enjoy the most. Nimble, sturdy, light, and easily maintained.

Cons: Had to replace front derailleaur after about a year and a half. Upgraded to SRAM X5. Also had to replace the seat and stem.

Recommendation: Great entry level bike. Also makes a fantastic back up or work-out bike. No regrets.

Model/Year: F7 / 2010

Pros: Light weight, durable, tires great for rock and dry areas

Cons: Front derailleaur needs constant tuning, pedals break, tires not so good for mud

Recommendation: Love the bike, highly recommend for entry level rider like me. Recommend purchasing from a store that sells a tune up plan. Buy better pedals.

Pros: Very light weight, fairly priced

Cons: front fork i know its not a downhill bike or anything but a little bit more travel would have be nice. So i would recommend this bike for the mountains or aggressive downhill.

Recommendation: Great all around bike,especially for Midwest riding. I ride with a group of friends and their bikes range in price from 500 to 3k. And although there components are better i do not have a hard time keeping up with(or passing) any of them.

Pros: Handles good. Not to heavy. Sturdy frame. Good entry level components. Tires!

Cons: Pedals suck, no biggie.

Recommendation: Great bike for the money. Perfect for anyone just getting into mountain biking.

Pros: Light, rides well

Cons: After maybe 10 hours of real light street riding ( with my 7 year old) crank stipped out, pedal and arm on ground, me and daughter 1 hour from home, no phone.

Recommendation: It's a good 'start'. Needs help to make it reliable.

Pros: I like the frame a lot. It is lightweight and sturdy. The Avid BB7 disc brakes are alright. I had to spend a little time to get them adjusted right and broken in, but they work great now.

Cons: I am having constant problems with both derailleurs. None of the owners manuals that came with the bike explain how to adjust them. It tells you how to install components, but if I'm like everyone else, I purchase bikes that are fully assembled. I'm sure once I take the bike to a tech it will be fine though.

Recommendation: Don't buy a bike from anywhere other than an actual bike shop. I got mine at a sports shop on an army installation. The bike is great for its price. I paid $503.99 for mine. I would recommend the bike to anyone who is interested in buying it.

Pros: Lightweight, handles great! Shock lockout is great! Can't go wrong with cannondale!

Cons: The seat, first thing I changed. Had to modify my hitch rack to fit because the frame is think (not a problem, just had to do it) Plan to update the cranks, and derailer soon. Other than that this bike is fantastic!

March 11, 2009
Pros: Amazing handling, Great deraileurs, Love the lockout on the shocks, and light weight and practically indesrtuctable.

Cons: Nothing

Recommendation: Great dirt jumping XC and urban riding bike can't beat it.
