For those of you who don't know or haven't noticed certain other products' similarity, there are several other companies out there who are possibly infringing our patented technology. We haven't been successful yet in accomplishing an agreement with these other companies but we are taking the steps that are necessary to enforce our patent rights.
We believe it is our obligation to inform those in the market for a bike fitting system of some important facts. As stated in 35 US Code 154(a)(1), every patent contains "a grant to the patentee ... of the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United States...". This means the purchase of a product which may be infringing upon someone's patent, can ultimately bring unwanted complications associated with using of such a product.
U.S. Patent 7,752,767 for a Device for simulating position of the saddle and handlebar assembly of the bicycle, amongst other things, claims the following:
1. A bicycle rider fitting machine, comprising a saddle, a handlebar assembly and a pedal assembly, the saddle being independently adjustable in one or more directions with respect to a bottom bracket position so that any adjustment of the saddle in any one direction does not affect any other adjustment parameter of the saddle; where the saddle is mounted on a pair of perpendicular and vertical telescopic parallel tubes or rods which enable adjustment of the saddle in the vertical direction, and a horizontal sliding assembly allowing adjustment of the saddle in the horizontal direction with respect to the parallel tubes.
