    Strengths:    bombproof frame with great handling over the many roots and rocks i encounter on rides. the rear suspension design simply floats you over the rough and perfectly positions you for drops/jumps. there isnt anything this bike cant do other than the occasional 10 mile climb...

    Weaknesses:    makes me late to work. but honestly none thus far.

    Bottom Line:   
    this bike was an absolute steal for the price that i paid. would have been willing to shell out much much more for it. if youre a downhiller buy this bike. nuff said.

    Strengths:    Great through rock! Couldent ask for a smoother bike!

    Weaknesses:    The frame has a little play in it

    Bottom Line:   
    If you are looking for a bike that is great for rock a Chumba would be good for you. I ride the Santa Barbara trails almost three times a week and those trails are super rocky and I have never had a problem with this bike.

    Strengths:    welds, design, feel, angles, cockpit,rear travel, best handling bike ive ever ridden, rear swing arm, super stiff frame, rear shock DHX5.0, floating brake arm = no brake jack, you can point this frame down anything, its sticks to the ground, jumps well and corners well

    Weaknesses:    nothing the frame its so well thought out, maybe tuff to get at the rear linkage but thats not a biggie, rare bb size

    Bottom Line:   
    I built up my dream bike in 03/04 my intense m1 with all the best parts i could get my hands on and I passed up on the chumba. After a season and a bit on the intense m1 i toyed with some freeride frames and then had a chance to pick up a chumba f4 in a trade that was hardly used. I have to say this is my dream bike now, Ive never ridden a better dh bike there is nothing this bike doesn't do well. I was told this bike wouldn't be any good on the North shore and north shore type trails. let me tell you they where wrong, the bike just rips on that stuff and handles well at slow speeds floats over all that rooty and real rough stuff holds a line like no other and has gotten me outta so much shyt and close calls.

    If you like to fly down the mtn grab some air or keep it on the ground, snap outta corners and point it down the rough stuff this is the bike for you. look around and see if you can pick one up.

    F4 shock replacement?

    Hopefully I'm posting this question in the right section... I have an 08' Cannondale F4. The stock headshock (fatty ultra) was rebuilt twice under warranty early on. 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 »
