Cannondale was founded in 1970 by Joe Montgomery and Murdock MacGregor, in an industry totally unrelated to cycling - manufacturing precast concrete housing. Ron Davis joined the company, and after Montgomery went on a camping trip with his son, the idea for a bike trailer was born. Unfortunately named the "Bugger", the trailer didn't take off as expected at the resulting Bicycle Shoe in New York, but remarkable demand for bike bags led them to focus on this area instead. Within 6 months Cannondale had the monopoly on bike bags in America, with 2500 dealers stocking their products within 20 months. Todd Patterson joined the company shortly afterwards, and his expertise in working with aluminium led them to venture into the bicycle market. Manufacturer of CAAD (Cannondale Advanced Aluminium Design) road bike and touring frames began in 1983, with Mountain bike frames being born a few years later. Early Cannondale bikes are distinctive because of the oversized tubes designed to increase stiffness. Their first frame partially constructed from Carbon was in 2004 with the Six13, with the full carbon Synapse being released a year later. Notable riders to have competed and won on Cannondale bikes include Cipollini, Gotti, Simoni, Cunego, Di Luca, Basso, Juarez, Chausson, Giove, Sydor, Sauser, Lopes, Martyn Ashton and Cadel Evans.

Start Fitness (or Start Cycles!)
Start Fitness (otherwise known as Start Cycles) started life in 1991, founded by a group of fitness enthusiasts. Primarily based in the North of England, they stock a whole host of products, from running to football, but more importantly (from our perspective!) also a reasonably wide selection of cycling gear. In particular, in recent months they've been selling road and mountain bikes at huge discounts, so if you're after a new bike then this is one of the first places I'd recommend looking (Handy quick link to their Bikes & Frames in order of discount!). I've never personally ordered from them, but several of my website's visitors have got in touch with positive feedback after snagging a bargain.
They have three main stores located in Newcastle, Durham and Darlington, but offer UK delivery via their website at (Clothing is currently £2.95 P&P, Footwear is £4.95). You can read more about their history here.
