Found another bike. This times its a Cannondale F3?

I've never heard of a F3 before. I've heard of a F29 though. Is there a difference?

Here's the link:
2011 19" CANNONDALE F3

Also, Thanks again guys. You've been super helpful. I just hope I'm not getting to be a bother asking all these questions about these bikes.

Like I said really dont know much about them. And my budget only allows me to get a decent bike if I find a good used one.

Well it looks like its at the top of that price group at $550.
But this one comes with the lefty front fork.

The Blue Book $549 - $565 price range is for the same bike, with a lefty, in new condition. If this is the bike you want, your price negotiation should be focused on not paying new condition money for a 6 to 7 year old 9 speed 26" MTB. If it was me, I would walk away from anything over $425.

Well, the bike is being sold by a dealer. So I dont think I could get them to go too much lower on price. I might be able to get them to go $475-$500 if I print its blue book value.

The bike does look really clean. And I do actually like the lefty's when they are in good condition.

I actually did not know it was a 26". I would have preferred it to be a 29 or 27.5.

But its hard to find bikes like these in good shape. And its right in my price range too.

In 2010 the Trail SL frame was built into "F" bikes, with the following number determined by the trim level. My F5 came with cheaper components than the F3 (by a wide margin), but the bike was only $700, Vs the $1300 on the tag of the last F3 in the shop.
