    New Rider - Northern MA, Southern NH

    Decided this was the year I'd finally purchase a mountain bike.

    After years of not riding I thought I would get something entry to mid-range. Retail store bikes did not cross my mind - I looked at a few LBS, but knew that buying online I would get the best deal.

    Considering buying something new it'll get scratched up, maybe dinged from what I foresee as the type of terrain I plan to ride on.

    So after a week of looking online I decided to go out and pick up a 2010 Cannondale F7 MTB. Paid $350, not sure if that's far more than I should have paid or not, but the purchase has already been done. No turning back now.

    Condition: 9/10

    I got an additional set of rubbers (CST Caballero), a Bell seat, a travel pump and a night riding lighting.

    The picture is not mine, but a image found on Flickr. The image displays the same tires as what was given to me in the sale.

    Only thing I plan to do at the moment is change the grips. They're yellow and red - both colors that I personally don't like.


    By the way my name is Santiago, Santa for short. I'm close to the NH border so I'll plan to take a few trips up soon to the White Mountains and do some exploring with the new purchase.
