Hey guys... I currently ride a 2009 F5 and love it. I want a Soft Tail with a Lefty as well. I found a great looking 2004 Scalpel 900 local that I can get for around $1100. It's the SoBe team replica version.
First thing... I'm a little concerned about the single pivot design of the Scalpel. Can you really tell a difference over a hard tail? Second... is $1100 to much for an 04? I really have no idea.
My other idea is to build my own. I'm not sure what frame to go with but I know I want to stay with Cannondale. I've looked at a Rush and a Prophet frame. I ride cross country. It's pretty flat here so no real climbing or down hill to worry about. I've never built a bike before and I know I'd mess some things up... but I thought it would be fun. I'm assuming I will end up spending way more if I build my own then If I just buy.
Sorry for the long post. Any help you could send my way would be appreaciated.
