Trickstuff Cleg 4 Disc Brake - Review
To be honest If I wanted something superexpensive and nicely done I'd just get the hopes

Yeti SB6C - Review
It was a first pre-production run. If they cut that run into pieces they couldn't send them. It's not a production standards issue. It's actually what you say it isn't so QC. That or small tolerances in durability if 45g extra can make the rear end strong enough. That means small error in production makes a bike too weak. A bit like the first model evil dh bike which had too tight tolerances on the suspension and their factories couldn't keep up.

Yeti SB6C - Review
Errors in production happen in every company. The problem is unless the vendor is crap the tolerance was too small and a little difference and a bad day at the factory can stand between you and a cracked frame.

Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
I don't understand most of what you wrote as usual but we can do a lot about it. We can not buy a given product. Customers vote with their wallets. It influences future projects and what is released. Massive outrage may also be a working though it works much more rarely (see movie examples - Batman and Robin or Spiderman 3 ;) )

SRAM Announces New Hub Standards - Boost 148 and 110
@deeeight sorry but distribution chain has nothing to do with small local shops. What you are saying is good for the distributor but not for the client and not for the LBS (so not for local biking communities too!!!) It also has nothing to with local shops at bike spots in the mountains. You can really expect a wide offer in an array of standards in flaship stores and a few big ones and those are only present in select big cities and few resorts. The rest of them are SOL. I know many shopowners who will not be able to keep up with it. Hell half of the shops in the alpes I know will have the same problem. For the 2nd part - So to cut it short it's not a problem because sram also makes cranks that will work with the new standards? Or is the cassete positioning in relation to front crank cog the same as in 148?

So it's good to criticise new stuff as long as no one else does it. If people do we can criticise them. Meta trolling!

It's funny since I remember Waki trolling about new standards 2 or 3 years ago. The only difference is he is ahead of the general curve with what he is displeased. So you can say he's a hipster troll, he hated them before it was cool ;)

So 2 new standards in 1 week? Great. Also people will really feel that 2mm difference between 148 and 150x12

FOX Announces 2016 FLOAT 34 for 27.5+
15mm and 650b are not that hard. 15mm is unnecessary but we can live with it, 650b kinda makes sense but You still have 142mm 157mm hubs, you have a relatively new bb standard (which sucks), giant tried to push a new headtube standard, we also have an idiotic 35mm bar standard (seems to have little to no benefits over 31.8). All those came in the last 4-5 years maybe less.
