Rinsten Spring Damper Mod road test video

I finally got to make a road test video of the "new and improved" Rinsten suspension technology using my simple steel cable mod that is able to provide spring pre-compression, travel limiter, and some rebound damping which solved all the problems of the basic Rinsten spring suspension technology.

Below is the video with the cable mod and another video from another youtuber reviewing a stock (unmodded) Rinsten Spring.

You can see the huge difference in the two. The modded spring is able to soak the bumps and tolerate hard pedaling and hard braking without bouncing which results to optimal pedaling efficiency, greatly improved comfort and confidence handling the bike, and of course, a much safer handling.

You may skip to 2:43 of this video for the road test

Picture below shows the advantage of "pre-compression" by the steel cable. Saddle height and tilt angle is the same with the rider on and off the saddle making it much easier to adjust, mount / dismount, to move your butt fore and aft the saddle, and greatly reduces angle change in use, which solves discomfort and handling issues with unmodded spring.

Picture below is the unmodded spring shows the extreme nose down tilt of the saddle. That is the uncompressed state of the spring. Which means the the saddle angle can change a lot during the ride, leading to discomfort, and even detrimental to the bike's handling and safety.

Below is a clear picture of the mod
