Yeah the 3's would work o k, but hed be upgrading as soon as possible, and a set of brakes are about 400 dollars for a good set. So its really a shame. Canondale should rather bump up the initial price by 200 and have a good set of brakes on it, stock..idaho biker 90 said:From what I looked at on the specs I think the cannondale would be the best choice. Even if they have juicy 3's they are still powerful, but not meant for full blown downhill. I both like that they have RS forks, but sorry I wouldn't know how either of them perform.
Dont think so. Ridden both on rental bikes so they may just have been in better condition on one, but both times the 3's were worse than 5's ive ridden.Djponee said:correct me if im wrong, but i thought the only difference between juicy5s and juicy3s was the lever was different shaped or something. but anyway, either bike is great. just depends on what company you like and price and stuff.
