Oh yes, those were the days. The 1990 show was the first year I attended Interbike. At 18 years old, and at that point having had a solid 4 years working in and lurking around bike shops, Interbike was the next level of my ascension into bicycle enlightenment (read "geekdom").
That makes us the same age, and I remember reading that MBA article at the time (Paying a regular exhorbitant fee to WH Smith for the privelage).
I too fell in love with the Manitou there, and the "They'd never work in England" Marinovative's... but I also had a thing going for that Titan Ti.
Never saw one in the metal but there was something "retro like" about it even then.
Ah happy days. You kinda felt then that each new issue of MBA would reveal a further massive (and probably CNC'd) leap forward in MTB tech.
