    I just bought a near mint Cannondale 2002 f800 for 730 dollars. LOL i know how everyone likes the Kona, but just please give your opinion on my purchase. Its a 19", a little smaller than my 21" old bike, but it seems to fit ok. I think i might buy a little bit of a longer stem. I live in washington state and have been on plenty of trails, and have gone to Moab as well. I use to ride every weekend but havent gone out consistantly for about a year. I'm just now trying to shake off all of the rust. I think i got a good deal in buying this bike, but tell me what you think.

    How tall are you? We need to know that in order to know the sizing. Also, I don't know anything about the pricing.

    Not everyone likes kona, just that some of us spark up conversations about them.

    I am aware of the sizeing issues. I use to use a 21", but this one seems to fit pretty well so far. I might need to adjust it a little. I just needed to know if i got a good deal for the price.

    LOL for a sec i thought i might have been the only one. The first bike i had was a crappy specailized, and i would go rideing with this guy that had a cannondale Raven; i think thats what it was called. It was an older carbon fiber model with a lefty fork, but due to defects he traded it in for a jeckle frame. Another one of the guys got one too, and i just remember how well they rode. The frames are hand made and they said nothing could compare, they said there was nothing like it. Now after getting my own i dont even know how i kept up with them. I chose to get a hard tale because I like to jump off of roots and stuff, and the full suspension would just absorbe everything. I was wondering if i had gotten a good deal in buying this bike.

    Yeah thanks man... the bike seems to ride just fine, but when i spin the wheels i can hear the brakes rub a tiny bit, is that ok? The bike is in better shape than i thought it would be. I went to my local bike shop to look around and it just so happened that he had a newer modle( probably an 04 or 03) on the rack that he was fixing. I asked him how much it would cost and he said around 1400 new. So considering how good of shape this bike is in; i think i got a pretty good deal for 730 dollars.

    Not a bad deal at all. I still think that C-dale should have never quit making the CAD-2 hardtail frame. There is nothing in this world more comfortable and simple than that.

    It's a fairly good deal. The 04s were going for $2000 Cdn, and at the bike show, I found them for $1400 (Cdn) -> 1050 US. However, yours looks like in MINT condition, so I think you got a pretty good price for it. Enjoy it!!

    Good deal! Comes with good components and $730 was an excellent price for the bike!

    The fork and frame would probably set you back that much, if not more

    As long as the components are in good shape, you got an alright deal. And it looks like they are. But, honestly, why does it matter? The deal is over.

    Anyway, have fun with your new bike whether it was a good deal or not.

    From what i can see it has an LX and XT drivetrain, Magura Julie disc brakes, Shimano PD-M424 clipless pedals, and a DLR lefty fork with lockout.
