New to forum cycle hunting?

All,

Hey, I'm new to the forum. I decided to get back into riding again after a 12 year layoff. I'm looking for a good entry level cycle. I'm going to use it 60 road 40 off. Also, I wanted to keep it in the $400-$500 range if possible. An help would be appreciated? Lastly, I just made contact with a subject who has a '08 F5 for sale. He wanted $600 for the bike and I offered him $400. He advised me he was going to sit on it for a few days. Any thought on this bike and price?

Thx,
Ron

That's a great price for the F5 ($400) if it's in good condition. I'd go with that. Also, the Cannondale Quick series is a decent bike, but you probably wouldn't want to take it "off-road" very much.
