Is there a bicycle springer that doesn’t pogo?

Anyhow that was not the real problem as the torsion bars were small and cheap and you could afford to buy different sets or modify them from a stiff set until you got what you wanted.

The problem was in the unitized nature of that girder. It did not lend itself well to custom lengths or custom handlebar configurations.

Anyhow, the modifications shown to the unifork were intriguing.

Shelby Shockease and CWC Shockmaster equipped bikes don't seem to pogo...but there is no rebound or damper involved. On the Western Flyer X-53 dual spring springer, one spring is for shock and the other is for rebound... but, I haven't ridden one... I'd assume they don't pogo.

X53 was the first one I thought of. I knew that was their principle

Planning to do something in the form of a cross bar. No idea what exactly. It'll tell me what it likes I guess lol

Some thing curved forward to conceal the top of the bearing, so it like conceals the fact it does not have a link to the top bearing unless you are close up or riding it?
