"That is so Oleg" sounds damn right to me. Easily the biggest innovator in our industry from an engineering point of view the last few years.

I just updated my blog. Hope you all like it.

At first I put a compression spring inside a syringe I had that pushed the plunger up to keep suction going. Unfortunately the syringe I had was too small, but I then remembered I had the brake vacuum pump. Worked nicely.

I'm very curious to hear about flexible caster blocks. I almost never feel compelled to change my caster from 4 degrees. A way to make it static on the Awesomatix would be welcome.

Conventional C-hub -type front suspension has possibility to change the caster angle under certain loads.
This effect can increase the grip (steering) at some conditions.
We are trying to do the same with our suspension.
