cannondale F advice

thinking of buying a second hand cannondale f400 / f600 or f900

whatever I can find -

can someone tell me - all reviews I read say cannondale are light bikes - yet f600 I looked at weighs 30 lbs .... is this considered light ? seems heavy to me -
and are there differences between different cannondales on frame or components weights ?
is a f900 sl lighter

Yes, the higher the number the better the components and generally the lighter they will be as well. Not sure if they all used the same frame back then or not.
