    Did DW invent the 4 bar design? I thought that had been around for a while. It's going to be interesting to see if DW patent is going to hold in court. If they went through the trouble of suing a company like GB Inc. they might know what they are doing. What's for sure though is that this litigation is going to take a long time to resolve...

    just imagine how much less your bikes would cost if you weren't funding four teams of lawyers.



    If you hate ridemonkey so much, why do you spend any time here? Seriously, 50% of your posts are about how stupid this community is.


    Regardless, I hope dw gets what it sounds like was written down on paper. As much as I hate advancement through litigation, the suit makes it sound like they ripped him off after he did the development work....although we all know how effective letters of intent are.

    that's fine, but it's no contractual obligation

    I'm offended by the senseless posting in this thread. My post makes perfect cents. Cee-LO tonight is shaved on the left point.

    I didn't read the articles and I'm sure the judge will sort it out. If DW is going thru the expense to take Giant to court then he probably has good reason too.

    On a personal level I think he's a great guy for the bike industry; he designs awesome suspension, he answers stupid questions from people like me about his bikes and he's stoked when you ask him.

    Based on the fact he has an STI motor sitting in his unfinished garage, I would say most definitely.

    Give'r. I just don't see the point. There's not many people who will take the time answer questions like he does.

    An STI motor in an unfinished garage makes him rich? LOL.

    It's always funny seeing people blame attorneys for (almost) all the evil in this world -- at least until they need one. Imagine how much it would suck if you had no legal recourse against being screwed over by your landlord, business partners, employees, ex-spouse, overly-rambunctious police officer, etc.

    Quality attorneys may not be cheap, but neither is your average doctor, mechanic, CEO (insert any reasonably smart or skilled person). The reality is that the cost of legal representation usually tends to be proportionate to the emotional and/or financial investment that is at stake.

    He maybe better go after Zora Arkus-Duntov's estate too. The instant center of the rocker arms on the SBC V-8 are disturbingly similar to that of the DW Link.
