Cannondale F4 Mountain Bike.. my new ride

I have been in and around town with this fancy 2 wheeler, or trying to get the most out of this bike. It is a Cannondale F4 in Charcoal Grey – Yeah, the name of the color is not that fancy but I can’t complaint about a decent entry level MTB.

So far, I have been happy with it other than the 2 deflated tires when it took it on a biking trail over the weekend.
Yes, I know – the reflectors are still on there as I ride it to work and I hate to be road kill on the way back from work.

Update 12/5/2011: Here are some recent pictures and upgrades. Cannondale F4 update.

Here are some pics:
