It's also fascinating to think of how long ago people should have STOPPED making suspension systems on 99% of all bikes.

Just kidding. Sort of.

If I remember my history right, the first real good suspension was based on 100 yr-old patents. It was turner, I think the patent that everyone else licensed.
