Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
tomoostv You compare introducing disc brakes to mountain bikes to adding 3mm to each side of a hub? I'm not a total bike nerd, although I do love everything about the sport, but I'm gonna guess that very few people would be able to guess if they were riding a 135 or a 148 bike. Vbrakes vs Disc? Come on. Night and day. 6" travel fork? More travel didn't change anything else. Just gave you more travel. 1.5 head tubes came on the scene with plenty of options for headsets to adapt. Or at the least press in cups to step down. 148 doesn't let you use your current wheels. You can't retrofit jack. And I have to add this in. 135 142 150 157 148 Boost? What are we fukcin morons who need a cute name to sell us the next best thing? Boost. That's funny.

Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
I'll concur with Mike K's assertion that he has opinions. His multiple responses to the sram post absolutely define his stance. Which is fine. I'm all for change. When needed. 27.5 29 11 spd With lowlow gear Narrow wide Clutch dérailleur All good But I've never heard anyone complain about how unstiff their front wheel was. Or that their back wheel could be a little wider at the axle so it could be laced wider. Jumps in technology need to be worth it. This jump is bullshit. Like many of you said, a new standard with new compatability and new prices. Sell me something worth buying SRAM

SRAM Announces New Hub Standards - Boost 148 and 110
If you're gonna come out with something new and different then why not make it easy for someone to retrofit their old shit so that buying the new shit won't make their old shit obsolete. Simple concern for the consumer. Buy this new fork and we have the parts you need to use all your old stuff. Instead of buy this new fork and you gotta buy all new parts to make it work.

Pinkbike Poll: Upsizing Your Frame?
This only works for those who need it. Not everyones legs and body and arms are the same ratio in length. Some people have long arms and short legs. Some vice versa. I have had my last two Nicolai's made with XL top tube lengths on L frame dimensions. Great for me since I have monkey arms, but one of my riding buddies who is the same exact height as me can't ride it. Way too long. Same as an XL would be for him. As well as way too tall. That said it would be nice if there were options when buying a frame like there is in clothes. 34 long pants, etc. Would suck though if that becomes the new standard and the standard size large is now long. All the guys with short arms will have to roll their top tubes up! To each his own.
