TranzX Dropper Seatpost - Review
@wallheater: Years ago, I knew a guy who, as an exercise in proving how screwed up the patent office was, by creative wording, and filing the applications with all the FEES paid up front, was granted valid US patents for essentially what were "the wheel" and "fire". That's ultimately as far as the USPTO vets an application anymore and as far as they have for 20 years. Are the fees paid in full ? If the answer is yes, then grant the application even if its for a pre-existing invention they could have proven already existed JUST by searching their own database of existing patents. That's how Specialized for example, got patents on inertia valve shocks, which they didn't actually invent the idea of, and by not disclosing their KNOWING there was prior patented art in existence. They KNEW the shock technology already existed, because they had licensed it, from its actual inventor, a fellow named Don Richardson. who unfortunately didn't specifically mention bicycles on his own patent application, among the other vehicles he did mention it being applicable towards. Perhaps other old people will remember that name, especially any in the motorcycle world. Why ? Well this little japanese company tried stealing a previous invention from him... and he took that company to court and WON. The company ? Suzuki. https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F2/868/1226/17438/

Rockshox Boxxer

$100 USD
* Price is firm, in USD, buyer pays all shipping, paypal payment only / NO cod * - Used in poor to fair condition. I do not know the last time the fork was serviced, there are numerous scuffs and scratches including both stanchion tubes (see photos) and there appears to be some oil seepage from the bottom left slider around the assembly bolts so it very likely needs a new seal kit to be installed at the very least - I do not know the coil spring ratings installed, or what weight of oil - 1 1/8 x 9 inch long threadless alloy steerer tube, upper crown uses 1/4 inch of the steerer length, which should be long enough for a frame with up to a six inch head tube. - 6.5 pounds as pictured including the boxxer front IS to PM caliper adapter for 203mm rotors

LOL... if you're going to lecture RC about seat post history (to be fair, he was a BIKE designer... the cunningham component designer was someone else) at least get it right first. Modern 2-bolt zero offset seatposts were invented almost simultaneously in Canada and the USA. Interloc Racing Design stateside and Syncros in Canada. IRD filed for and were granted an essentially worthless US patent for them (worthless because it was pointed out in a magazine at the time that these were just re-invented and there were 2 bolt seatposts of this type a century ago). Syncros was smart enough not to waste filing for a patent for an existing invention, they improved on the design anyway. THEY were also the ones who first started using a brass socket washer for the bolts, to eliminate creaking... NOT Thomson. Thomson posts copied every feature from the Syncros posts except the hole in the bottom to pass a lock thru, and the usage of a head pressed and bonded into the post shaft (Thomson went with a 1-piece machined head and shaft design). I have actually broken the head of a syncros post free and snapped the top of the shaft in the process.
