    Smile How does the C'dale F7 co2 compare to the Specialized Rockhopper?

    i'm deciding on a new bike for me since my current cannondale is getting old:

    not sure of the specific model number, but its similar to this:

    i'm wondering how this bike compared to the Specialized Rockhopper. i think the features r pretty similar, so how does the quality compare? i will be buying from NYC

    is the cannondale worth $100 more than the rockhopper? thats what my lbs is selling them for

    Depends on which rockhopper. The rockhopper comp is closer in price to the f5 and I think the f5 is spec'd a little nicer. Is the f7 you have your eye on equipped with disc brakes? You should start by looking at the parts of each bike. The bike in the link is an older bike I think so it really doesn't tell us much. Can you post a link to the exact bike that you're looking into?

    Between those two I'd get the Hopper.

    F5 > That hopper > F7
