Bike of the week 3: Cannondale F7

March is here and the trails will soon be ready to ride! You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great bike. Cannondale’s 2010 F7 gets you SRAM shifting, Avid disc brakes, and a suspension fork with lockout. For years of dependable mountain biking, this is where you start. Using Cannondale’s advanced aluminum engineering, the F-series frames are comfortable, efficiently stiff, durable, and light.

Cannondale makes women specific models of the F-series bikes. Women specific goes beyond color. Across the line, Cannondale takes the designing of women’s bikes seriously to accommodate the differences between men and women far beyond the traditional “shrink-and-pink” approach. Saddles, handlebars, frame geometry, suspension tuning, and in many cases brake lever size are all designed and manufactured specifically for women.

At just $600, this bike is a great value. We sell a number of these bikes to people with cabins or second homes near great riding to use a few times a year. It is also a quality first mountain bike, or replacement bike on a budget. This bike is also well suited for packing the kids in the trailer and riding around the neighborhood or to the park for a picnic.

Take a look at the men’s bike or women’s bike on Cannondale’s website, or come see them in person. We keep both colors in men’s and women’s bikes in stock in almost every size.
