I like both of the cannondale's, but if i bought one from last year they all had lefty forks with i just don't really want. I wouldnt know where to look for a Santa Cruz, and it seems that a good set up from Santa Cruz will run your way higher. Also, i climb a lot of hills where i ride, and was wondering if these FS bikes would make it more difficult to climb. I know they make some read shocks that lock out but wasnt sure if the 2 bikes listed had these. Any other suggestions to bikes?
for a FS i dont need a full set-up, just a frame so i can build it up from there. Anything come to mind? (It doesn't have to be a FS, I would really like a nice HT just as much as a FS, also if you think of a great deal on a fully set up FS that would be great) im just looking for a quality bike. thanks
