Cross-Country Tech - World Cup XCO 2, Germany
That carbon post looks a lot like the old Syncros design with a little mass removed from the rail clamp

24 Hours in the Squamish Backcountry - Photo Epic
@onemind123: My wife had one stalking her recently by Seymour. Took several minutes of screaming and waving her bike around before it left.

Several trails on Cypress. At least a chunk of it was Meat Flaps.

Opinion: The Eagle Has Landed
Lets look at all the reasons gear boxes are not going to take off any time soon. Heavier, increased drive-train resistance, dedicated frame design, cost, lack of accepted standards and compatibility between manufacturers and the biggest one of them all, few of you gear box fan boys are willing to put your money where your mouth is. Even for DH, it is hard to justify. Compact 7 speed cassettes are light so not much unsprung weight. Has anyone ever actually worn out the cassette on a dh bike? Mine is 4 years old and I pedal it a lot. And at $60 for a Zee derailleur, even 3-4 a year isn't a big expense and it isn't a big deal to leave a spare in your vehicle or pack. Drive-train parts are also readily available and cheap if you run XT.

Niner RKT 9 RDO 2-Star Build - Review
I have to agree. Talked to a frame builder buddy who very clearly stated that rear hub spacing is irrelevant to chainstay length and tire clearance as the chainstays and seat stays can simply be curved out where they need to be. Especially easy with carbon that is molded. Truly sucks that I have to buy new hubs for my new frame due to this Boost marketing crap.

The Impossible Bike: Carbon Built Here in the USA - Sea Otter 2016
Now if they went the consumer direct route, costs would be similar to or less than competitors like Santa Cruz. Bike prices are too high because there are too many hands in the pot. Why the hell am I paying a cut to a distributor back East for the Scott I just bought? Why in the past did I have to get a Banshee ordered through Trident when Banshee was based here in North Van. There are plenty of cost savings available but until the big players start taking a more significant hit in the pocketbook by companies like YT, unfortunately that will not change. I think this is where small manufacturers could make a nice niche for themselves.
