I picked this up from a friend who bought it out of a police auction. I took it completely apart and put it back together with everything just as it came from the auction. The only parts I replaced were the brake and shift cables.
The mystery for me is trying to identify this bike. Going through the vintage Cannondale catalogs, I see bikes with frames that look like this, but everything called an M400 has a conventional diamond frame. The headbadge logo puts it in the '97-'99 era.
It's just a hunch, but I doubt there is very much original left on this bike. It seems like it was cobbled together from a lot of parts/donor bikes. It rides and shifts very well, and it seem light compared to other smaller mountain bikes I've ridden. I'm not an off-roader, but I think this must have been a decent bike in its day.
If anyone has a clue, or can point me in the right direction, I'd really like to fix this bike up properly if I can track down the right bits and pieces. It seems like it might have been a very nice bike at one time.
