Im just saying, i see it as nothing more than a interesting concept that should be developed to try to find out if it actually could have any real world applications. I just think its too cool to squash it entirely right off the bat, just something cool enough to explore and thats it. Simply thinking out loud here.
Its scary and ridiculous that the system shuts down or goes stiff if the bike shuts off.
My only thinking was it would be cool to be able to push a button on the fly instead of stopping and using a screwdriver/whatever to make suspension adjustments on the side of the road. But yea i do think it will be gimmicky enough that it will be cost prohibitive to buy such a thing when its only use is that of being able to adjust on the fly. I just thought after some development it might have uses elsewhere in the world on other platforms. Dont know, havent given it much thought.
Id like more riders to be informed about having quality suspension but even if they're informed it wont mean all of us can plop down $1500 for a luxury part and thats part of the conundrum IMO. I agree, i already cant afford a CHEAP suspension upgrade much less this kinda technology and i also dont feel in any way that i should just give up riding because i cant afford the latest Ohlins. Why cant manf'ers stop putting turd suspensions on bikes out of the factory? Bike prices are already through the roof, why not put some extra R&D into suspension, prices always go up anyway and that way Average users would have a decent suspension to ride on until a upgrade, if ever. Either that or go the other way and put non adjustable complete turd OEM suspensions on and bring the price of the bike down if everyone is just gonna swap it out anyway. Somethings gotta give lol.
