oh man. i've been around long enough to have spent lots of $$ on questionable products. i had a mountain cycles suspender fork (circa 1991ish) that looked very trick - inverted single crown with one of the first production disk brakes - but (with only a qr front axle) was terribly flexy torsionally & laterally. and the elastomer springs compressed & hardened reducing the original 2.5" travel to half (i drilled holes in the elastomers to eke out a bit more compliance). it was both more expensive & worse than the OG rockshox RS-1 i had previously. but it sure looked cool.
