    Looking to buy a f5

    Hey guys I've been looking at the f5s, I'm fairly interested.
    I was wondering how they ride, and if they are ok for some freeriding as well as downhill.

    How much do the frames weigh by the way, is it hard to get a complete to weigh in at around 40? pounds?

    easy to get it under 40lbs.

    I'm probably going to be selling mine soon. only ridden a handful of times this year. Just no time. It's a sweet bike, looking for something new for next year.



    let me know if you are interested.

    the f5 rides realy good & pedals very well for a dh bike & is very plush at the same time. 40lbs is about what they weigh stock.mine is 41lbs with dh tyres & tubes.if you want to save some weight just put a ti rear spring in.

    They handle roughs amazing, corner amazing and pedal really well. I've got mine with the longer dogbone link though which i highly recommend if you get one. 40 is cake... i have mine at 38.5lbs... Stock frame with DHX coil weighs 11.6lbs
