    Hi,
    I was in the market for a Cannondale hardtail myself! (3 years of XC racing in Florida! I had a small superV and won 35-39 beginner. Then a small Scalpel and won 40+ Sport. And then went to a small Sobe Hardtail and won 40+ Expert withit.)
    I saw an ad here on MTBreview this small 03' F1000 frameset but thought that the color was too "LOOK AT ME!!"
    I put it together and showed up at the XC races onit and I was kind of embarrassed on how bright this thing was (I preferred grey/black at the time) and the pressure and fear that I was going through to do my first Expert race of all over whelming!
    A past compeditor came up and asked me, "Where is your race bike?" I said "I am onit!" He laughed and could'nt believe that I went Hardtail, especially at my age, but I love the way that this Hardtail rails in the corners and feels when under pressure!
    After how well this bike performed for me, I now like the color!

    By the way, I am 5' 4" and have an inverted 100 x 20* stem on a small frame.
    Here are 2 pics of the same Sobe. 1 with the flash off and 1 with the flash on.
    Looks like I have 2 different bikes!

    Inspiration to update my F300!!

    I also own a 2004 F300 but with the grey and black color scheme. The first upgrades I made where to the fork (upgraded from Rock Shox Judy TT to 85mm 2004 Marzocchi Marathon SL) and my crank (upgraded from Truvativ Isoflow to Shimano Deore Octalink). I got a really good deal on the marzocchi fork but always felt that my base model CADD2 framed F300 was not really worthy of such a good fork (the fork rocks though!!). Thoughout the past year I have also obtained SRAM X-7 shifters and rear derailleur, SRAM PG-970 11-34, 9 spd gear cassette, SRAM PC-69 9 spd chain, AVID Single Digit 7 V-brakes and AVID Speed Dial 5 brake levers and I am debating if I should use the additional components that I have to further upgrade my F300 or apply them to a "much worthier" dual suspension bike in the future. Looking at your upgaded F300 inspires me to just go ahead and upgrade it. If I ever get a dual suspension, it will be a Rush 600 or Prophet 400 which already have SRAM X-7 level components anyway. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Also, noticed that you have a 120mm zoke, I was originally thinking of getting a 105mm Marathon SL but was afraid that it would slacken my geometry too much since I have a small sized frame. Has the 120mm fork had any significant affects to your geometry and ride? Also did you upgrade the reducer headset from the stock FSA one that comes with the F300?

    to tell u the truth... the only diference I noticed about increasing to 120mm was a big improvement from the judy... handling feels quite the same on flat and climbing, downhill does improve quite a lot. I like the slacker angles and the frame is medium, so i guess it handles it better than a small like in ur case, and still have the stock headset (only original part, besides tires... waiting for them to wear out)

    Polished F500 XL

    Just picked it up... Haven't even ridden it yet!

    I believe it's a 1997 or 98....This replaces a 22" 1997 F400 I used to have (also polished).

    Love the old F series c'dales - especially the polished ones!!

    Those grips are Specialized BG Performance and the barends are Serfas Al-Stablizers both are inexpensive but very functional! As you can see I've kinda upgraded the stuff on my bike again but the grips and barends remain, I like them that much!

    F600 - Year 199X

    Here's my F600 - I think it's a 1999'er -perhaps 98, I'm not sure

    Stolen in 2004 I was in luck with my insurance company though - they paid out 80% of new price. I'd still rather have kept the bike though. I had planned a new fork for it after the winter -kind of happy that I didn't get around to that

    My old '01 F2000.. miss it dearly.

    Lefty ELO, XT/XTR mix drivetrain, heavy (but strong) wheels, Hayes Mag brakes.

    Ended up buying a secondhand Scalpel frameset and transplanting the parts over.

    My CURRENT F600 (this thread needs more Sobe! )

    I did sell the small bike and I picked up this medium, MUCH better..On the small bike, I bent the post. Gave me an excuse to go Thompson (F600 AND P600 )...Plus I went a tiny bit blingy with the blue Hope skewers/post clamp .

    Who here is the Photoshop king? What would she look like with blue spokes and I9 hubs????

    By no way the best photoshopping and neither the work of a king but here is your bike with blue spokes and another variation with alternating black and blue spokes...

    Nicely done red Cannondale with Rohloff 14speed rear hub and Grimeca System12 brakes. It isn't my bike, but it's so nice that I had to post a pic anyway.

    My first Cannondale. I wasn't going to be able to get one in my pricerange, but I found this F300 on closeout and couldn't pass it up. So far I am extremely pleased. I love the feel of this bike all around.

    Saw plenty of it, I'm just not one of the people who believe mud needs to remain on, or be in the photos of, the bike as some sort of vindication of actual useage. Plus I'm an anal retentive engineer

    Man you are really good at this !

    I thought I was sick to wash my bike once a week , but I don't remove mud inside the bolts or inside the thread.....Must be a long job......

    PS I have that exact same bike , but very modified now after all these years, now a SS.

    When I said anal retentive, I meant to a clinical level. My Fiance gets really PO'd whenever I ride my motorcycle as I disassemble the body work and take it in the shower and clean it. Whenever I get stuck in the rain with my Evo 8 I remove the front bumper, fenders, etc. and clean everything off. Bicycles are a piece of cake when you have a collection of air compressor nozels, brushes and Q-tips for cleaning vehicles. I'm sort of known in town and I always have guys lined up to buy my old toys when I get new ones.

    My '99 F1000SL reincarnated

    I bought a medium ’99 F1000SL (green Caad 4) at the end of '99. 5 years later I cracked the frame (chainstay, from fatigue, after about 15000km), got a new furio frame (under warranty, thanks Cannondale, great CS), and I found it the “medium” furio frame to be a little bigger than the “medium” CAAD4, so it took a little while to get used to it. I built up the furio frame with mainly hand-me-down parts from one of my ellsworths. The Fox Talas Fork works great on this bike (the 85-125mm range is perfect for the bike). For those thinking about putting a 1 1/8 steerer fork on their Cannondale, go the Cane Creek Double XC deep cup headset. You might find that the fork just hits the cable stop on the downtube (depending on fork and frame size) – I fixed that with a bit of dremmeling. The brakes are 180/160 mono minis, and it runs a 2x9 set-up with 46/34 chainrings on a stronglight ISIS crank, with a 11-23 dura-ace cassette. This bike goes off road only when friends occasionally need a bike. It is primarily a commuter, and lately I have been doing a bit of road training on it. With some big nobby tires, off road gearing and the fork wound out, this bike handles downhill rough singletrack superbly - but sadly it doesn't happen often 'cause I've got other bikes for the off road stuff.

    I'm also riding a 99' F1000 frame. Set up as 8-speed, with a mix of old-school and newer XTR components. Im waiting on a set of Raceface turbine compact cranks and some Avid ultimate levers.

    2007 F4 Teak Brown (Matte)

    Here's my new bike! Just picked it up last night and so far, with a little night ride, I love it. I am not big on suspension, so a cannondale hardtail is just what the doctor ordered. The brown looks nicer to me this morning than it did last night, and I really liked it last night. The frame is a large; doensn't look like it, but it is.

    My New F800

    Here's my F800 added some new XPedo pedals. I have about 200 miles on the bike so far and I have to say I love it. My only complaint so far are the tires that came on the bike….but that’s an easy fix.

    My freshly built winter bike:






    Love it, only one problem, the headshok is a nightmare when pumping up, it always spews air out when removing the pump (no its not just the air in the pump), I have to be REAL quick so only a little releases but if I aint quick enough it can spew the lot out !

    I got a topoeak pressure-rite but knackered it up by overtightening it so the o-ring is shot :/ , might try another one and be a tad more careful this time.

    Slightly different

    First time post in the Cannondale forum.

    Here's my bike- a CAD 3 frame + Fatty D with pretty much everything else replaced. It's pretty much XT-level, not sure what F-series that would equate to.

    The setting is Torres del Paine national park in Patagonia. As you can see, it was set up for touring.

    I only spent maybe 12 days in Torres del Paine. It was part of a three month tour through Patagonia.

    Hello all. Although I've been riding for around 5 years now it's been very casual and I'm still a complete know-nothing when it comes to much of the MTBR scene. I picked up my first "real" bike not too long ago and I look forward to talking with you all and learning a lot.

    I bought the bike used off eBay and I'm really happy with it. As far as I know or can tell, it's a 2001 Cannondale F2000 SL Team Sobe Edition Fatty Headshok. XTR Group Setup with a couple XT components (I guess a couple were lighter than the XTR at the time). The only upgrades I've made so far are Rockwerks Clipless Pedals and a Black WTB Laser Team Ti Saddle. The owner of the bike wrote this about it:

    “Sobe Headshock Team Frame, Medium frame with a top tube of 21” for a real 16” frame. XTR group except: Crankset XT 175mm, Casset XT 11-32, Shifters XT (XT stuff were lighter then).

    Have a Thompson Seatpost, Fizik’s Saddle, Easton XC Riser Bar (low), Rear XTR Hub with a XT Freehub Body on it (Bombproof), New Mavic X517 Hard Anodized Rims, Revolution DT Swiss Spokes in Black with Black Alloy Nipples (Handbuilt myself), Salsa Titanium Skewers (Black)."

    Sounded good to me so I bought it. Probably got ripped off or something but it seems awesome to me and I can't believe how light it is (22 lbs) compared to my first bike (33 lbs).

    Here's some photos that were on eBay when I bought it. I will update with better pics later:

    2006 F600 in Patriot Blue, matte finish.

    Love this bike, bought it this spring. Feel it's a perfect platform to upgrade. Speaking of which, this pic is of the bike totally stock, with exception to GripShifters, right from the LBS.

    Since these poor pics were taken, I've upgraded some parts, are planning to do some more (and will start a topic to ask for recommendations on wheelsets)...

    Paint: the matte finish is awesome. But on my back-of-car rack, it's rubbed up against my wife's bike and worn entirely away in a small spot on the seat stay. The paint job seems to be very thin. The "Dual Assault" sticker are just stupid. I wish I could remove them.

    Saddle is now a Specialized Body Geometry Avatar -- which I cannot recommend highly enough.

    The pedals are first generation Ritchey Logic cro-mos. -- soon to be upgraded to Crank Bros Candies, so I can stop swapping pedals between this and my LeMond Poprad CX/Commuter bike. Hoping to get some Cannondale Carve shoes with that. I still have the Cannondale pedals that came with the bike... never used, mint condition sealed in a ZipLock if anyone's interested.

    Planned upgrades:

    New wheelset -- Mavic CrossMax or Cane Creeks? Looking to go as light as possible... I'm only 145lbs and don't trash anything.

    Tires -- huge and heavy. I've got to get something 1.95 and much lighter. The tires, while ok, may be the worst part of the bike. Luckily, one of the easiet to change.

    Bar: I feel like I'm holding on to some Texas Longhorns... *way* to wide, I'll be looking to get something flat, or near flat. Would love to go carbon, but usually you can't use bar ends, which I'd like to get either Ergon ends or Serfas Al-Stabilizers.

    With the new bars, I'd like to toss the cheapo-levers. Probably something nice from Avid.

    Anyone use a suspended seatpost? I'm interested. Worth the weight? Or should I go carbon?

    Your thoughts are welcomed!

    Overall verdict: love the bike... can only get better.

    1999 F700, with a few upgrades

    1999 F700 bought in late 1998, my second Cannondale MTB and third overall Cannondale.
    Been riding it since new, still in great shape, I'm no racer, just a weekend warrior type.
    6ft 220 lbs and no creaks, cracks or fractures. Replaced some spokes here and there and a new rear cassette otherwise no major malfunctions.

    Upgrades:
    RaceFace prodigy XC crank and isis bottom bracket
    XTR v brakes
    Riser handle bar
    Specialized seat
    Ritchey spd pedals

    Next bike may be a Rush 4, probably a year or so away though. Yep, I'm gettin too old for the hardtail, need some suspension back there.

    I said that I regretted selling my old hardtail (a 2001 F2000) and this weekend was time to make amends. I bought an old 2001 F600 Disc second-hand, and love it. CAAD4, Super Fatty DL, all XT (bar the Deore shifters), Avid BB7 discs, and a Coda crank which is a little bit bent. After a tear down to the bare frame, a re-grease and rebuild (using new cables and housing) it's as good as new. Except for the paintwork though, it's got a lot of scratches near where cables used to rub. The person who built it the first time didn't use the proper cable mounting holes/clips!!! Such a shame, I love the colour. But the colour hides the scratches well, in some places I think it even emphasises the tuff-ness of the paintwork! And yes, that is a small dent in the downtube, the kind that happens when someone clamps it a little too tightly into a roof rack..

    I think I made a mistake in putting a Lefty on my old F2000; the slightly steeper head angle with the Fatty makes the handling just a bit quicker and more nimble.

    I'm starting to like this bike more than my Scalpel

    good stuff

    Just bought this frame/fork - 1999 Cannondale F2000
    Built it up from an old gary fisher
    nothing too exciting, the switch was interesting. had to get a new front der because of the top/bottom pull difference and a new bottom bracket. also, i had to get some studs for the brakes, but overall not too bad. im looking forward to getting it out there in the snow.

    I just got my F4 2 days ago! I went riding today and loved every minute of it. Even when I ate it 3 times and broke my left brake lever.

    Thats a sharp looking frame (love the color)!........but I would loose those old school pedal/cages (If your uncomfortable with SPD's, pick up some light weight platforms) Not only do those weigh a ton, but they are uni-directional so you have to fumble around to get your foot back in. I don't know your riding skill level (but you said you ate it a few times) so you might find platforms much more beneficial for awhile.

    Thanks Proxy!

    The F4 is my first bike and today was the first time I've been on the trails. I'm not sure what SPD's are, but I am going to get some of those pedals that latch on to your shoes. I just spent a boat load on that bike and accessories. So I will have to wait a couple of weeks so I can get the pedal plus shoes. What are platforms?

    Platform=flat pedals (not specifically these but like these)
    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...Pedals+06.aspx
    Benefits are that they are very grippy but you foots not locked in so they are very easy to use and bail out from if your just learning the off road stuff. Downside is you dont get any energy from your upward stroke (like when your cleated in) so its all down stroke (less efficient).
    SPD=clip in pedals (not specifically these but like these)
    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...540+Pedal.aspx
    Benefits are that you can spin efficiently with all your pedal stroke moving you forward, they are super easy to lift your bike with (like to hop over a rattlesnake ), and IMO they give greater over all control. Downside is they take some getting used to and you make take some diggers getting them wired.

    Either option is better than what came with your bike. Welcome to your new addiction, just remember its cheeper and healthier than drugs

    Benefits are that they are very grippy but you foots not locked in so they are very easy to use and bail out from if your just learning the off road stuff. Downside is you dont get any energy from your upward stroke (like when your cleated in) so its all down stroke (less efficient).

    Benefits are that you can spin efficiently with all your pedal stroke moving you forward, they are super easy to lift your bike with (like to hop over a rattlesnake ), and IMO they give greater over all control. Downside is they take some getting used to and you make take some diggers getting them wired.

    Either option is better than what came with your bike. Welcome to your new addiction, just remember its cheeper and healthier than drugs


    Hey thanks proxy!

    I think I'm going to go with the SPD's. There is alot of sand here and I also think that having help with the up stroke will benefit me on the road. Now I just have to figure out what shoes to buy. My bud said something about SIDI, but they are pricey. Thanks again.

    I have always had good luck with Shimano Shoes but recently have switched to Gaerne. I wear a size 11.5 and SIDI run VERY narrow (In fact I've never found any of their shoes to fit me with an average US width) so try em on before you buy em (cool shoes though).

    Hey brotha! I went ahead and bought the Shimano 520's and SIDI bullet 2's. I gave them a test run this morning for the first time and it was an experience. I only ate it a couple of times but I think I did pretty good for a first timer on the pedals. Next step for me is to make the bike lighter. Piece by piece im going to carbon fiber. Its 27 lbs now and my goal is 23 lbs. Later.

    lighten her up

    Kornele23,

    Get rid of the reflecters on the wheels, and seatpost, dump the saddle back and water bottle cage and waterbottle and get a camelback. -- Thats probably a lb there.
    good luck with the project.

    Thanks for the suggestions. reflectors are easy, I guess I can see how much a carbon fiber seatpost is. The saddle back saved my butt today, when I had a flat. I'm not sure i'm going to let that go yet. I just bought a camelbak the other day, so the water bottlle and cage can go. thanks bro.

    Heheh I would have stated the same thing as "eman2" but I didn't want to bum you out all at once.....lol!

    You might seek other opinions but I don't care for carbon bars and posts (the bars can shatter if dropped and the posts, at least the ones my pals have, seem to suffer similar fates). But welcome to the never ending bike parts upgrade world....lets see....lighter crank, XO shifters & rear derailer, weelset..................

    PS. If you open the 520's all the way, you should be popping out with just a hard up pedal (good to learn).

    This is my first mtn bike...seems like the best frame among the tons of $500 mtn bikes.

    I tried to get it as dirty as I could, but it's been pretty dry in central Florida.

    Found a 1999 F1000 frame which had never been built up in the not so common purpleen paint and decided to build it up for my son with the full 07 XTR group. I thought it turned out great and wanted to share. Enjoy!
