Publication number: US20210394850A1

Abstract:
A bicycle telescopic apparatus includes a first tube having a receiving space, a second tube telescopically received in the receiving space of the first tube, a position detector configured to detect a relative position between the first tube and the second tube in a longitudinal direction of the bicycle telescopic apparatus, and an output device configured to output a signal based on a detected result of the position detector. The signal can control a bicycle component other than the bicycle telescopic apparatus. A detecting point of the position detector is located in the receiving space of the first tube.

Publication number: US20210339826A1

Abstract:
A sprocket support body comprises at least ten external spline teeth including a plurality of external-spline driving surfaces. The plurality of external-spline driving surfaces each includes a radially outermost edge, a radially innermost edge, and a radial length. A total of the radial lengths of the plurality of external-spline driving surfaces is equal to or larger than 7 mm. At least one external-spline driving surface has a first external-spline-surface angle. The first external-spline-surface angle ranges from 0 degree to 10 degrees. One tooth of the at least ten external spline teeth having a first circumferential spline size. The other teeth of the at least ten external spline teeth each have a second circumferential spline size that is smaller than the first circumferential spline size.
