After a 15 year hiatus from biking I decided to get back into it. My 17 year old high end bike was showing signs of wear, and with a 1" steerer, it was costly to add suspension to my rigid setup. So I rushed out to buy a nice intermediate bike thinking that with 17 years of technology I would be happy with this level of bike. For $150 less than I paid in 1993 I picked up a 2010 Cannondale F5.
After a year of riding it I am disappointed in 2 things; number one weight and number two, handling. This bike is 6 pounds heavier then my old bike, and the steering requires very big inputs to navigate the technical single track I normaly ride.
Are their some key upgrades I can make to this bike or is it time to move on to a better platform?
