Keeping it simple. Magazine/Sales Assistants sales talk, too PARTS orientated, for people who don't who know what PRELOAD, REBOUND & LOCKOUT is OR for.
LOCKOUT (Minimum suspension Lock Out).
My definition nice and concise.
These days, descriptions in MAGAZINES, and sales talk from bike shop SALES ASSISTANTS barely gloss over the features and benefits of suspension (Obviously you wouldn't want to bore or confuse potential customers too much).
Mostly mag's and sales assistants, go on and on about the PARTS of the bicycle, and what a nice ride it is, excellent value for money, oh yes it is, etc.
You should be on the telly!
