I have only been riding for a couple of years and not seriously (yet). I have a Cannondale Terra and I HATE it!!! I didn't know any better when I bought it but now I have this lumbering, crappy shocked, beast of a bike! HELP.... I can't switch out the shock because this model is the beta of the bike world: a larger front tube so I can'r replace the single shock with a forked one. Any suggestions for a long legged, short torso having newbie. This bike is dampening my enthusiasm.
