Hey all. New to the forum here. Figured I'd get a little feedback from people who have more experience than me with mountain bikes. Looking to get a new bike and trying to choose between a 2009 Scott Scale 60 and a 2010 Cannondale F5. The Scott is hair over my price, but if enough people say great things about it, I may up my budget. Or if there are other bikes in the $800-1000 range you could suggest. I only am looking at hardtail bikes. I rode both bikes and both feel very nice, although I only rode them around outside the store. I would be using this to just cruise around town when I can't get out to trails. Otherwise, a smaller(unfortunately) amount of time would be on state trails here in WI and maybe every few years out west on some of the bit more technical trails(nothing hardcore all mountain). Thanks in advance.
