    Smile Focus Black Forest 29er 3.0 (2012) vs. Cannondale Trail SL 29er 2

    Apologies, this was originally posted in the general forum by accident!

    I'm considering getting the Focus or Cannondale as my first entry-level mountain bike. Does anyone own either of these and can say anything positive or negative about them, or which you would suggest as the better option?

    I'm more inclined toward the Focus but I'll take a good look at the Trail SL 29er at my LBS.

    What's the significant differences between the Cannondale Trail SL 29er 2 and 3?

    Appreciate any advice!

    I am sort of looking into the Focus but have not managed to find any reviews about it. However you could read reviews for the black forest 2.0 if you find any, and possible the black forest 1.0. I believe all of the black forest bikes have the same frame (Focus MTB Pro 29r), it says so at least in the printed brochure I have from Focus but according to the Focus website only bf 1.0 has that frame and 2.0 and 3.0 are built on "Focus Black Forest alloy" frame.

    However the frame geometry-wise look all the same to me.
