    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.

    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.
