Hi everyone. I have invented a new suspension system for bikes. I am running a crowdfunding page on Idiegogo to help raise money to make the invention a reality.

The link is just a teaser page, the worldwide reveal will be this Sunday.

Please try to be supportive. I have shared this on Facebook groups and the mountain bike groups are the only ones that have had mean comments. I am just trying to create something new. It's not a scam. Indiegogo doesn't run scams. If you don't like the idea of crowdfunding that's fine, don't give money to the campaign. I am trying to share this to inform people that it exists also, not just to raise money.

Thanks.

We've been here before with this platform, it doesnt work and is heavy.
a basic cheap shock will work better than this.

be OK for Walmart etc bikes.

I must admit, the video reminds me of video cams in the late 90s when we were kids filming ourselfs and our great ideas in the back yard, Not much has changed lol

I think the reason that bike forums seem to be mean is that a lot of us have huge amount of experience with suspension systems, perhaps even considerably more experience than yourself. Amazing that you tried to find a solution to a problem, no-ones taking that away from you, but this design has been attempted before, and it didn't work well, and lots of people on forums have been aware of it for 20years

Further to the above, some of those forum users have been scammed for thousands via companies using indigogo to get funding.

This is a goof, right?
