Cannondale F6 Disc

Remember when you had to spend a bit more to get your hands on a Cannondale bicycle? Either that or make do with a compromised spec. Cannondale have turned that received wisdom on its head with the release of the Cannondale F6 Disc - probably the best spec'd mountain bike you will get at this price.

* CO2 (Cannondale Oversized and Optimised) frame - the stiff lightweight frame built with oversized butted aluminium tubing is a concept that Cannondale, more than any other company, popularised, developed and perfected.
* RockShox Dart 2 with 100mm travel - the suspension fork is a concept that RockShok, more than any other company, popularised, developed and perfected.
* Avid Juicy - with its fingertip lever control Avid Juicy is the new standard in hydraulic disc performance.
* Dependable mid-range Shimano gear shifting: Shimano MC40 24-speed Rapidfire shifters with Alivio rear mech, Acera front mech and Acera chainset.
* WTB SX24 rims on Shimano hubs make for a fine set of wheels.

Nice bike. Good price. Might have to replace it when the brakes wear out though!!
#2
Actually mate, that is quite a nice bike and if i had a few bob spare i would be tempted to buy it, have some heat :)

Good Price, brakes alone must be worth £100.
Although this is the bottom end of the cannondale spectrum, I am not sure how great quality is, but on the better specced models, quality is very good, and they are always thinking out of the box. I.E Cannondale Lefty Fork:

Yup, great bikes.
#5
Leftyfork is just a marketing gimmick.

Otherwise Cannondale frames are pretty decent and usually come with good components.

How bad would a mountain bike like this be on a daily 6.5 mile commute through London? Would I be very much better off with something designed more specifically for road use?
#7
Change the tyres to some road tyres and you will be fine.
Try wiggle.co.uk for the tyres.
Although you are going to be better off getting a commuter if its just for commuting. Will make your comute alot more comfortable.
If you want a cannondale, search for a "cannondale bad boy"
I would highly recommend a good lock. Spend at least 15% of the value of your bike as a rough guide. Because you will after your bike has been stolen. I learnt the hard way, by spending £20 on a lock and having an £800 bike stolen :( and that was the first time I had ever locked it in a public place.
Bought a £120 lock now....If only I had done that before.

if spending below 500 quid on a bike im not sure it matters what one u get so if u can get this cheap go for it - im not sure its a super deal as they always reduce the bike prices when teh new models are coming in

thanks for the advice. More likely to the occasional commute plus riding in the park with the kids. Would that change your view?

Seen a few bikes on here recently and have been looking for a good bike. How many years do you think this bike would last me? I've been warned of spending £150 on bikes.

in regards to Meangreenie My KA was £200 so this would cost more than my car :P
#12
Slojo - Yes this bike is great for that. In my opinion better than any GT you will pick up from Halfords for around this price.

Just make sure you get the right size frame as it makes a world of difference.

As I said earlier these brakes are worth at least £100 for the pair. The suspension is more than adequate for your needs. All other components are Shimano or other respected companies,. I would prefer this over the Specialized in the other deal, if you arent planning on any upgrades.

The specialized is probably a better base to upgrade from, seeing as it has taken ideas from the previous years stumpjumper, If only the stumpjumper was down to £500.

yeah good advice thanks.

hows that tesco £40 bike treating you?.

I recently sold my old Citroen Saxo for £600 and replaced it with a £400 mountain bike....

I am now £275 a month better off cycling to work than driving to work.

Who would turn down £275 a month extra.... ok so not possible for everyone but its not just the purchase cost :thumbsup:
#15
Very hot. You'll struggle to do better than this for £300. Considering the brakes and frame it was probably a good choice at full retail.
#16
I almost went for this Scott deal when it was £299 (now £319) - is this deal better?

I might take the plunge as a Christmas present to myself if so :)

I was wondering the same thing. Any experts have an opinion?
#18
i still have my original canondale super v lol - might be time to sell this and buy a new 1 - super v was the first original suspension bike which all bikes are modelled from now, awesome bit of kit when it came out - anyone interested ?

Can't argue with that, just bung some semi slicks on and you'll find the ride much easier, knobblies are awful on the road but the amount of people that still use them.....

If I was to do that, what would be the difference (if any) between this bike and a hybrid?

I have to say I don't really know that much about hybrids, I'm more of an offroader, I would guess that an offroad bike has a stronger build quality and lighter materials whereas a hybrid is designed for comfort. Basically, the hybrid's designed to be comfrotable on the road and would break off road but the MTB is designed to be chucked around and won't break easily but then won't perform as well or as comfortable on the road (although chucking road tyres on it will help).
#22
Good deal. I was looking for an entry level bike to try mountain biking. :)

Hope they have some left.

Not much in it but I'd go the the 'Dale for snob value, blingier brakes and I reckon it looks nicer.

Cannondale are higher in the mtb snobbery hierarchy than Specialized, although if anyone can post a Klein or Bontrager deal I'll have one of them instead.

I don't have a mountain bike, I have a normal sort of commuting bike with mudguards (very useful for commuters) and thin tyres, light frame, and useful things like carrying rack etc. The great thing about it is that is perfectly capable of riding off road on mud and rough tracks and I frequently do for short cuts. Often I overtake the mountain bikes there too. Obviously I wouldn't do any of that fast very steep inclinestuff that mountain bikes do but I've never had need to. For a laugh I entered a cross country bike race, the only non mountain bike entrant and beat loads of them! They were very annoyed.

Thin tyres mean lower rolling resistance and wind resistance too (surprising how much difference that makes into a headwind). It's also lighter with no suspension or other gimmicky bits and very comfortable as its sprung in the saddle stem. Replacement wear out components are also cheaper and the typres are kevlar lined. The other good thing is the thief always goes for the mountain type bikes first, because those are the ones that the kids want.

A mountain bike would be a step backwards for my type of journey, i.e. going from A to B, not sport.

Excellent bike for the money, would recommend buying one!

Given that neither of them are producing bikes right now you'll be lucky. Both brands are owned by Trek now.

Fantastic deal, paid £360 for it at Evans a couple of months ago.

Brakes are very good as are the shocks. No complaints about mine at all, for this price - get it bought.

Most likely it having suspension forks up front (additional weight, and if no lock-out, energy loss on road), the gear ratios may be more applicable to climbing hills, than road, geometry possibly slightly different, wheels will be 26" as opposed to 700c.

In real terms, for pure on-road,or light off-road, comparing it to a hybrid, it'll likely be a bit heavier, and a bit more boingy at the front.

Some "hyrbids" these days, don't even bother with 700c rims, but 26" - 'cos as you hint, some hybrids are just really rigid (ie no suspension front or back) mountain bikes, with slick tyyres.

There's no huge difference, it's all degree of improvement for each purpose. The biggest difference, IMO, for using a mountain bike on-road, is slick(-er) tyres.

That's dafter than a daft thing - snobbery between Cannondale and Specialized.

Personally, I'd always have a little bit of sentimentality for Specialised - 'cos their Stumpy hails back to truly BITD.

Both effectively "dead" brands, now. Dunno if the Bontrager name is still used for branding some parts.

That's reassuring.

Appreciate the comments from the more experienced MTB'ers - that this is a decent bit of kit to start on.

Just had an e-mail from them to say mine's being delivered on Weds. :)

well went and bought one to go with my specialized full sus
#34
Oh and it says Rockshox Dart shocks, they are actually the Dart2's.
#35
only the small frame size left now
#36
bump...large size appears to be back in stock again

very tempted by this

Do the shocks have lockout? It appears to be an option on the Dart 2s but wondering if yours came with the option.
