Did Cannondale ever get called out for copying Marin?

While I was poking around eBay I saw this some Cannondale Prophets and couldn’t believe how exactly alike it was to my bike. I was being a new dad when these things came out so forgive me for missing it. Come on, what a rip off!


Actually the newer Specialized Enduros also have a frame that’s looks real close. My 08 Cannondale Perp has same single pivot rear. Not fancy but predictable…
