    Nice! I tried out a XL RZ myself one time and really liked it!

    That is nice - 3 Cannondales in your stable - you are lucky. I am up to two now - my bike and the wifes.

    Thanks. Yep an F600, Scalpel, and now a Rize. I was thinking of seling the F600 but it's such a nice light bike even by today's standards. I know I'm preaching to the choir but Cannondales are not your average MTB. IMO as always of course.

    Cool - I also had a F600, I gave it to my brother in law - so I suppose you could say its still in the family. Bicycles here are expensive so when I next get a new Cannondale I will do like you and keep my old ones.

    I would love to have my old '04 F600 back. That bike was such a nice XC ride and I had just upgraded it to match my Rush's drive train.

    I know the feeling. Everytime I sell a bike I wish I had it back. I feel that way about my Long Haul Trucker. Miss it terribly.

    Nice wheelz!


    I still have and love my '95 Stumpjumper FS. Light/stout xc bikes are tough to get rid of . . .

    I just picked-up an '11 RZ 120-2 a few days ago. Fabulous all-arounders.

    Thanks all! It really is a nice ride. The original handlebars were a little wide for me but that was easily remedied. It is in the shop now though since there is about an inch of play when locked out. Not enough oil? Maybe, but they'll get it done pretty quick.

    Yeah, I am not a fan of the uber wide riser bars on these bikes, either. But I suppose that is the nature of a bike spec'ed to do it all. I have a flat 600mm bar en route. . .
