Fa-Hsing Lu v Hyper Bicycles, Inc., 568 F. Supp. 3d 68

Of course, you’re free to go beyond this speed, given that the rest of it comes from sheer leg power. Given a bike weighing at least 6.8kg doesn’t in itself guarantee its safety, it begs the question of whether there is even a need for a minimum weight limit. Given professional riders often push their body weight to the limit in pursuit of performance, it should perhaps come as no surprise many also demand the same of their equipment. Regardless of how big or small the performance gains are, though, many riders just want a lighter bike for the ‘vibes’.

Resting on Reddy and DePaoli, plaintiff requests that the Court reject defendant’s proposed construction and reserve any issues of functionality for a later time. Lu brings suit for two counts of patent infringement of United States patents numbers US D529,842 S (“the ’842 patent”) and US D556,642 S (“the ’642 patent”), each of which relates to the ornamental design of a bicycle. Plaintiff seeks judgment that has infringed the two patents in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271, damages to compensate plaintiff for the infringement, trebled under 35 U.S.C. § 284 due to the willfulness of the alleged infringement and attorney’s fees under 35 U.S.C. § 285. On the performance side of things, the Ultra is fairly decent, packing a 250W hub-integrated motor. This motor is capable of propelling this electric two-wheeler to a top speed of 20 miles per hour with pedal assist.

I’m looking for a cheap (i.e. about this price) ebike for food deliveries as I’m tired of pedaling up and down hills all day long. I can’t afford anything expensive (over ~$1K) unfortunately… When considering complaint information, please take into account the company’s hyper bike size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm’s responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints. I weigh 190lbs and on a straight road, I get up to 19mph which is way faster then what I need.

In analyzing a patent infringement action, the Court must 1) determine the meaning and scope of the patent claims asserted to be infringed and 2) compare the properly construed claims to the infringing device. Markman v. Westview Instruments, Inc., 52 F.3d 967, 976 (Fed. Cir. 1995) (en banc), aff’d, 517 U.S. 370, 116 S.Ct.
