    From what I can see, it's a perfectly good bike, and still modern enough that you probably won't get much play here.

    Kinda like going to a forum for Ford Model A's, to ask about your 1995 Escort wagon

    Also? Ask questions, simply asking "what do U think", isn't likely to get you much except smartass comments from the peanut gallery. Good luck and ride it like you stole it

    I'd like to know that is it worth to give about $900 for it?! :-)

    I need an all rounder XC bike, for hard terrain...

    The right place? Hmmm, the Cannondale forum for one,

    http://forums.mtbr.com/cannondale/

    Or perhaps these?

    http://forums.mtbr.com/bike-frame-discussion/

    http://forums.mtbr.com/beginners-corner/

    Not listed in any particular order, nor do I have thoughts on who'd be the best option. You're new, explore, you'll get the feel for what works for your needs.

    It's a fine bike, slightly outdated with it's 4 bolt rotors,(as opposed to 6) but as long as the brakes work it'll be fine.

    Asking about pricing/valuation on this forum will get you a bunch of flack from many folks. It's better elsewhere, but generally a question that best answered by asking, what is it worth to me? What do they sell on eBay for? etc....

    But after that brakes burn out, i could change the hubs and the rotors... and maybe the bike will be easier too!

    I live in Hungary, so it's not so easy to get all kind of bikes.

    The next time I'll look out to start a new thread at the right place!

    True, but consider factoring that price into your purchasing negotiations. That stuff isn't free.

    Good luck, and post some ride pics on whatever forum best suits your needs (I'm guessing Cannondale), I'll bet there's some great trails in Hungary

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    $900 seems a little high, I'd probably lean toward a new F4 if I was spending that much.

    I was thinking that myself. It's a really nice looking bike. I can't see any changes resulting in a measurable difference in performance over what you have. Leave it the way it is and enjoy. Nice ride.
