    2001 f400 questions

    Can anyone tell me if the frame was made of the furio aluminum? Is the frame light? Was this bike on the higher end or lower end of the range in 2001? Thanks!

    Hi there, I can't say specifically but I would try this site: vintagecannondale.com and browse the 2001 catalog.

    The frame is light and the bike is on the lower end of the range. I think they started at F300 and went up in number towards the higher end

    I had a 99 F and it was definitely a light frame (not sure of the model number, maybe 700). I know it was a caad frame, but I don't remember reading anything about being furio. If you're just interested in the frame, the model number is irrelevant as it only references the level of components that come with the bike. I loved my old caad frame and that bike out of the box was much, much lighter than the Trail SL5 I ride now. The bike came with a head shock (I think mine only had a travel of 40, but it may have been longer by 2001). It's definitely a good frame to build a bike from, but as with most cannondales (or any lower end of the premium bikes) the components really beg to be taken off and replaced with lighter and better stuff.
