    Strengths:    This is my first heart rate monitor. I like the functionality.

    Weaknesses:    I received this HRM for Christmas 2008. Two weeks later, the buttons broke off. Polar sent me new buttons, which broke off in 2 weeks. I sent the unit back twice, and the buttons broke off both times. I called service and spoke to Albert. He said that the button become brittle if exposed to Sun Block and suggested that I either do not wear sun block or wear a cloth under the watch. Their new units do not have this problem, but Albert would not let me exchange my defective unit for one where I can use the watch and wear sun block.

    Bottom Line:   
    Don't buy this product if you use sun block.
    I will never buy another product from POLAR.

It's been in storage for a few years. I recently pulled it out and it's junk again. I want to replace it. For the time being I'm goin ... Read More »

    Tires for F4?

    My stock tires on my 2008 F4 are in need of being replaced. Anyone have any suggestions? Any good "bang for the buck" tires? Also, while I'm at it I wouldn't mind replacing the presta valves with schrader. Would I just need to drill out the rim a bit? I don't want it to look terrible.Read More »

    Joshua F4

    I have a Joshua F4 that I am slowly raising from the dead. I have had it since 99 and I had a pretty bad wreck on it back in 2002 and it has been in pieces ever since. The bike is still in good condition, I was the one who took the blunt of the wreck. I love the bike and I am finally trying to bring ... Read More »

    Bought a 2008 F4, with knackered headshoks

    Hi, I've browsed this site in the past and recently, but having now purchased a 2nd hand F4, thought it was about time I joined. the F4 I purchased isn't perfect, it was cheap and had sat a while before I got my hands on it, everything works fine and smoothly, but it is definitely worth me putting ...

    Badboy 9 vs Quick 4... Thinking of a change from my current F4.

    I'm kind of stumped as right now I've been looking at both bikes. Wanted to get something that I can use for simple commuting in NY. I want to stick with Cannondale so now I'm just trying to figure out which would end up being the better commuter. I've rode both and I feel both have a nice feel t ... Read More »
