Alfster (Brian) and MAXX (Alfred??)are the guys. Was told just a week ago that Maxx is no longer involved, no idea about Brian. Neither have been on the board for last couple yrs., so haven't heard anything about the system since. I think Trick was selling them at 1 time. He might have the inside scoop.

I bought the steering from Fred at Trick last year but I would like to know what happened to the company and why they are still not around before I install it and can not get parts in the future. Brian

I remember a couple years ago when they were documenting the "building" of XS steering on OSO. Everyone was jacked up about it because it seemed they were putting out a very nice product with the promise of low pricing. It seemed like everyone lost interest when the pricing came out....if I remember correctly it was very similar to latham or other high end steering components and was not much of a savings. There was a line on OSO waiting for this product if the price was right.....I think it faded pretty quickly.
P.S.- the product they put out was very nice.
