    Newbie, neeed help =)

    Hello friends.

    I'm trying to get back in shape and have some fun so I'm going to pick up a mountain bike to trail ride with my buddies(something I've been putting off for some time due to other interests soaking up all my $$$).

    Anyway, I have a $500 budget, and I'm searching on craigslist for something lightly used.

    I have the chance to jump on a '04 Cannondale F600 that is super-lightly used(around $500, fair?)

    I did some searching on here and it seems like they are a good bike to start on.

    I'm 6'0 with about a 31'' inseam(with running shoes on). Will an 18''(medium) frame be alright for me? I know generic sizing charts suggest I get something a little larger - Your thoughts?

    Think I'm headed in the right direction? Or should I save up and buy new?

    Thanks in advance.

    is it the SL or the regular F600, Even for an '04 $500 seems a bit much...I'd look at it first and maybe have it checked out @ an LBS first someone whos familiar with headshocks I'd get it but for a bit less maybe $50 less, they went for about $1000 new,

    He's going to email me pictures but I might just go check it out in person this week. I'm sure he would take $450 it, sounded flexible in our email interaction.

    Or this popped up...
