Cannondale F600 Mountain Bike, 1995 Model

I do not remember a lot of details about this bike. It was stolen from my garage by some painters who had been working on my house. I could not find any information about it in my file cabinet.

Searching in Quicken, I found that I bought it in the spring of 1997 at Hill's Sport Shop in Amarillo, Texas. I remember it was marked down substantially so it probably was from a previous year. Searching through old catalogs available online, I think it probably was an F600 made in 1995. Here is a picture of it from an archived Cannondale 1995 catalog that I found online:
