Cannondale Caad2 Mountain Bike

I'm brand new to mountain biking and thanks to websites like this and youtube and ebay where I bought my bike, I have a good chance of being successful. I love this bike. It needs lots of TLC and this website is gonna be wonderful. I dont know anyone who bikes on the road or on the hills, but as soon as I figure all this out and lots of practice on the farm hills here, I'm stepping out to bigger and badder things I'm sure. We have lots of trails here in Mississippi , which I used to ride with my 4wheeler. Glad to know ya'll I dont see the picture I uploaded. Maybe it'll show up later/ Also when the bike came I didnt have a clue how to put it together. Later on I'll have to tell of that experience and me putting it on backwards and how funny the ride felt...Pictured below is when I started noticing something was weird about my setup. It just dint look like the other bikes brakes...ha!

Hi queen, and welcome to BT! Where 'bouts in MS? I grew up just south of Memphis and moved to AR in '79.
Nice C'dale you have there. Feel free to ask anything - probably someone here will know.

Cannondale makes some excellent bikes. I'm partial to Giant's but what the heck it's still a very nice ride.

Hi, not knowing a thing about mountain bikes or for that matter any kind of bike (I ride 4wheelers and jetski's)I feel purdy good about this old used bike. If I fall in love with biking (like i did jetsking and 4wheeling) I'll check out the bike you mentioned. I think I do love the Cannondale brand.
