It actually was Sheldon's site from which I got the trademark are certainly right about the "genericized trademark" thing.  I suppose a better question would be: Was there any "abbreviatory" logic behind Suntour's term?  I think Rangertom above might be right...

Hey all--

I get all bothered when I realize that I don't know the etymology of an abbreviation and have to immediately find out what original term it refers to.  Anyway, "barcon" has been bothering me the past hour.  I dug around a little and found that the term is an old copyright of Suntour...but nothing more.  Is it maybe not even an abbreviation?  Anyone know?  More importantly, anyone else want to play the game?  What have you heard SAG stands for, for instance?
