|20150321719||BICYCLE FRAME - A bicycle frame has a plurality of frame members that includes a first member and a second member, the first member having an outer sheath disposed at one end, wherein the outer sheath at least partially surrounds the second member with a gap therebetween such that the outer sheath does not directly touch the second member. An elastically deformable coupling is disposed in compression between the outer sheath and the second member, the elastically deformable coupling being disposed to at least partially fill the gap.||11-12-2015|
|20140379135||CAMERA SYSTEM FOR ADJUSTABLE VEHICLE FITTING SYSTEM - An optimal configuration is determined based on operational characteristics of an operator when operating an adjustable stationary vehicle. A camera system is used to collect anthropomorphic data about the operator to establish an initial positioning of the components of the adjustable stationary vehicle. The camera system can also be used to collect real-time information about the operator's body positioning so as to cause adjustment of the positioning of the components of the adjustable stationary vehicle while being operated.||12-25-2014|
|20140378280||ADJUSTABLE STATIONARY FITTING VEHICLE WITH SIMULATED ELEVATION CONTROL - An optimal bicycle frame size and configuration is determined based on operational characteristics provided by a rider when riding an adjustable stationary bicycle. An optimal motorcycle and motorcycle configuration is determined based on characteristics of the rider when riding an adjustable stationary motorcycle. A camera system can be used to collect anthropomorphic data about the rider to establish an initial positioning of the components of the adjustable vehicle. The camera system can also be used to collect real-time information about the rider's body positioning so as to cause adjustment of the positioning of the components of the adjustable vehicle.||12-25-2014|
|20140049020||INSERT FOR ADJUSTMENT OF OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTIC OF A BICYCLE AND BICYCLE PORTION WITH INSERT - An insert for a bicycle has a central portion and a contiguous outer portion to form a unitary elongated body, the body being dimensionable by reference to major and minor datum lines, the outer portion forming a flange. The body includes a first outer surface defined by the central portion, and a second opposing outer surface defined by the central portion and the outer portion. The central portion includes a through-hole that extends perpendicularly through the body from the first outer surface to the second outer surface, wherein the hole defines a hole axis. The central portion has a non-circular outer profile that encloses the hole axis, and the flange has a non-circular outer profile that encloses the hole axis, the outer profile of the flange being larger than the outer profile of the central portion. The hole is disposed asymmetric with respect to the minor datum line.||02-20-2014|
|20130248570||Expansible Bicycle Cargo Racks - An expansible bicycle cargo rack includes a first member, a pivoting mechanism arranged on the first member, a second member arranged on the pivoting mechanism, wherein the second member is configured to rotate about the pivot mechanism between at least two positions, and an elastic member coupled between first member and the second member.||09-26-2013|
|20130192416||CRANK SPINDLE ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF FABRICATION - A crank assembly for a bicycle is provided. The crank assembly includes an integrally formed unitary body. The body includes an arm first portion and an arm second portion extending on an angle from one end of the arm first portion. An enclosed cavity is disposed between the arm first portion and the arm second portion. The cavity has a first width at a first end in the arm first portion and a second width at an end of the arm second portion, the cavity and the arm first portion defining a first wall thickness in a first direction, the cavity and the arm second portion defining a second wall thickness in a second direction. The first wall thickness and the second wall thickness are substantially equal. A boss portion extends from an end of the arm second portion opposite the first arm portion.||08-01-2013|
|20130065733||DYNAMIC FIT UNIT - An optimal bicycle frame size based on operational characteristics provided by a rider when riding a dynamic fit unit is determined. A best-fit bicycle frame size that is a closest match to the optimal frame size is determined. At least one of the optimal X,Y location of the bicycle's handlebar relative to the bottom bracket, and the optimal X,Y location of the bicycle's seat relative to the bottom bracket, is determined. A stem and spacer from a list of available stems and spacers that will best fit between the head tube of the best-fit frame and the optimal X,Y location of the handlebar is determined. A seat post from a list of available seat posts that will best fit between the seat tube of the best-fit frame and the optimal X,Y location of the seat is determined. A list of the best-fit frame, the best fit stem and spacer, and the best fit seat post, is produced.||03-14-2013|
|20130043667||BICYCLE FRAME AND DRIVE LINK CASE THEREFORE - A bicycle frame includes a front section and a rear section. The front section includes a front frame portion having a front coupling configured to receive a front wheel support member and to allow rotation between the front coupling and the front wheel support member, the front frame portion defining a central vertical plane of the frame. The rear section includes a drive link case having an upper tube, a lower tube, a rear hub housing, and a front housing integrally arranged with each other to form a rigid drive link case having an opening disposed between the upper and lower tubes, the drive case being connected to the front frame portion via the front sprocket housing. The drive link case is disposed eccentric to the central vertical plane and is cantilevered rearward from the front housing. The front frame portion extends forward from the front housing.||02-21-2013|
|20120130591||BICYCLE USER INTERFACE SYSTEM AND METHOD OF OPERATION THEREOF - A bicycle is disclosed having a control system with a user interface and an active suspension system. The control system includes a one or more sensors arranged to measure and transmit a signal indicative of the terrain over which the bicycle is being ridden. The active suspension system includes a valve box that is fluidly coupled to each chamber of the lower cylinder. An orifice in the valve box is changed in size in response to a signal from a sensor associated with the front wheel that changes the response of the suspension system due to changing terrain conditions. The user interface includes a selection device mounted to the handlebars that allows the user to change parameters of the active suspension system during operation of the bicycle.||05-24-2012|
|20100236356||BICYCLE CRANK SHAFT ASSEMBLY - A bicycle crank shaft assembly includes first, second and third members. The first member defines first (crank axle), second (first segment of first crank arm) and third (first segment of second crank arm) portions, the first, second and third portions of the first member being integral and continuous with each other and having a generally s-shaped configuration. The second member defines a second segment of the first crank arm, and the third member defines a second segment of the second crank arm. The first and second segments of the first crank arm are bonded to each other with a bond seam therebetween to define the first crank arm, and the first and second segments of the second crank arm are bonded to each other with a bond seam therebetween to define the second crank arm. At least one of the crank axle, the first crank arm and the second crank arm is hollow.||09-23-2010|
|20100230926||UNITARY CROWN FORK ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF FABRICATION - A bicycle is provided having a unitary steering tube-crown member and a unitary crank arm-spindle member. A multistage aluminum 3D forging process is used to form the unitary members. This may allow the fabrication of components with substantially hollow interior areas to reduce weight, reduce part count while maintaining high strength and ductility. The multistage 3D forging process provided also allows the combination of multiple components into a single unitary part.||09-16-2010|
