I’m gonna say the front suspension fork. Once again, these probably showed up somewhere else first (motorcycles perhaps?) but the forks these days are lightweight, low maintenance, and provide just the right amount of control over most terrain. Imagine how different today’s hardtail bikes are compared to the original clunkers…

I think i could agree with that trek there’s been many a time when the only thing keeping me from tasting my front tire is that bit of travel in my fork. I think one of the oldest and most basic features should be up there now that i think about it, we can’t forget about having multiple gear ratios and being able to change them with that flick of a switch where would we be without them?…probably at the bottom of the hill haha.
