Got one just like it on my wife's old Bridgestone mountain bike. It's probably 15 years old or so--I don't remember if it was before suspension forks or a less expensive alternative after they were introduced. I rode with it on my old rigid MB for awhile, and it didn't seem particularly effective. The theory is fine, but in practice, I learned to ride off road long before suspensions came along, and I don't put much weight on my hands anyway (same with suspension seatposts, btw--I can't remember not to stand up over bumps, so they don't do me much good). Might work better for somebody who learned with suspension and just sits and pedals.
