I am 16, so buying an expensive bike is hard so no its not a $4,000 dollar bike, but its still a Cannondale!!and its handmade in the U.S.A!! F300 hardtail, its nice!! I can't wait! This saturday I finally get it, I have been waiting for a long time. When I get it, I will post a pic. Anyway, its $529, and thats a bit much for me, but I need the bike so, there you go. I know you guys spend a lot more and go for like Rockhoppers, and Gary Fishers, and Cannondale Jeykls, but you see its my first real mtb. bike, and so I have to start small.
