    Cannondale bike comparsion

    I am just getting back into mountain biking. I am looking at a 2011 Cannondale Trail SL3 and a 2010 Cannondale F5. I can get the 2010 (closeout) and a great price from a bike shop so the warranty would apply. I realize the SL3 has hydralic brakes and the F5 has mechanical disc brakes. Any advice on these two bikes? It looks like the frames are basically the same. Thanks.

    They're close enough in spec that I'd go with whichever is cheapset. Enjoy!

    I was in the same boat, i chose the SL3 because of the brakes, white paint, and the fact that an XL 2010 F5 is really hard to find.

    Plus it is the first bike i have ever bought brand new.
