I remember being in a central London bike shop some time around 1996/97. I was queueing (check that out, five vowels in a row) to pay for a silver ControlTech seat post. The guy in front of me was a smug overpaid city-boy type – and a right arsehole. He was also a Cannondale owner, and was guffawing loudly and making disparaging comments about Marins. And that one turd put me off a brand for almost two decades.
