    2008 Cannondale F5 Vs. 2008 GT Avalanche 2.0?

    Hey All,

    I went on a mad bike search today for my first Mtn Bike.

    I think I have narrowed it down to two bikes:

    2008 Cannondale F5 $630

    and

    2008 GT Avalanche 2.0 $590
    http://www.gtbicycles.com/usa/eng/Pr...ard-Tail/#5597

    Can someone break down the diff of both bikes and share an opinion on which is the better purchase?

    I have an Avalanche 2.0 and so far it seems to be holding up and as far as specs go the F5 has slightly better components. I purchased mine for $450 at Performance so atleast you'll be saving some notes.

    Best advice would be to go test both of them out. Fit is very important.

    The Avalanche is on sale at Performance for $500. If you buy it today, you get an additional 15% off (their anniversary sale). Just FYI...
