    2010 cannondale rz one fourty 5 or f3 Help!

    hey all, i am brand new to the site and apologize for my "fresh fishness"..lol
    Anyhow i am buying my first bigger boy mountain bike and really need some help from more experienced riders. I have narrowed it down to 2 bikes, the RZ 140 5 and the f3 but i am not sure which i will enjoy more. I previously had an 08 F5 and did really enjoy it but didn't get it to many trails. I dont know whether to get a FS or hard tail bike. I really like the lefty shock but unsure about maintenance. Most of my riding will be on dirt trails and the here and there crazy sections but as of right now i am gonna be a granny and warm up to harder stuff. My LBS has the RZ 140 5 in stock but would have to order the f3 so i wanted to get some outside opinions before going in to pull the trigger. I understand that the FS would be more comfortable and the hardtail is faster but i want to get the right bike for me. PS im 6ft bout 215lbs if that makes a difference. Oh and i think the RZ is about $200 more.
    Thanks all!

    Here is my 2 cents... I have the F3 and its perfect(for me). It did take a while to get but it was well worth the wait.

    LOVE THE BIKE!!!

    haha, nice suggestion. I think i am going to go full suspension but might be getting the RZ 120 3 over the 140 5 since it is just at $2000 which is like $600 off the msrp.
